Publisher's Summary

Max Hastings is best known as an acclaimed journalist and military historian. But what is perhaps less well known is his love of the countryside and its pursuits, above all fishing and shooting, which he indulges as often as he can escape his urban working environment.
In this classic selection of gentle, contemplative musings, Max Hastings shares some of his favourite rural moments; tramping the snipe bogs of Waterford; dogging hedges in Hampshire and moors in Sutherland; casting a fly from Scotland to Iceland and Alaska; and shooting in India and the west of Ireland. Combining a journalist's knack for storytelling with the enthusiasm of the dedicated amateur, Outside Days is the perfect companion for anyone who revels in the freedom of the outdoors.
Max Hastings is an acclaimed journalist and author of over 20 books. He is renowned for his works of military history, such as Bomber Command and Das Reich. But he is a country boy at heart and he enjoys fishing and shooting as often as he can escape to the great outdoors.

Good story about life in England

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this but make sure the person knows this is strictly about England. It is an interesting, comical, informative book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Outside Days?

There were many memorable funny moments in the recollections, some of which probably shouldn't be recollected in a public forum but are entertaining.

Have you listened to any of Cameron Stewart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to this narrator before but he is very good however it seems to how many I have listened to on Audible, English narrators seem to be the bulk of the folks who narrate. For this book it is very appropriate and a seemingly perfect narrator but I wish audible would have a few more non-English or book appropriate narrators.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had no extreme reaction to this book. It was purely entertaining.
