Since I was born in Montreal, this travel guide really tweaked my attention when I saw it on the new book section of my local library.
As all travel guides, the reader learns so much. But to think that I learned so much about a place that I lived in for 22+ years just baffles me.
I learned so much! For instance, I learned about all the historical buildings in Quebec City, which I visited quite a few times.
Then I learned that Laval, where I was born, now has well over 400,000 people. It only had a couple thousand people in the 1960s.
Also, the cultural centres around Montreal are growing. This is understandable given the divergence of the population in Quebec and Montreal now. It is truly a treasure throve of beauty, vibrancy and yes culture.
I will make sure that I take this guide along with me when I visit Montreal. And I will be sure to visit some of the restaurants that are mentioned in the book.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves Montreal, and for those who have never been to this wonderful city! You will definitely want to visit after you read the book!
