5.0 von 5 Sternen Built our entire trip around this book - never wanted to do a review before this one 29. September 2011
Von Jan Cares - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
My college age daughter and I just spent 2 weeks in the south island, at the end of their winter season. I had already gotten her the North Island book and was amazed by everything in it. So I bought the South Island book and spent weeks pouring over every page, the website, the pic's etc. I then mapped out his most recommended places and we set out on our journey. We hit the West Coast, including Pancake Rocks, Motekeiki Beach Walk, Franz Joseph Glacier and the unreal teal waters of Hokitaki Gorge. Then over Haast Pass and into Wanaka and Queenstown. Then the Routburne Track, Milford, Curio Bay, Mt. Cook, Lake Tekapo, Kaikora and up to the Queen Charlotte Track before catching the Ferry back to Wellington. Only Scott tells you how important the tides are at Pancake and Motekeiki (awesome seastacks), how you can see rare penguins (for free) at Curio, how cool the windswept South Coast is, how rainy it will be on the West Coast and how to prepare for sandflies, what the best trails are at Mt. Cook (wow), how you have to get to the Falls Hut if you do the Routburne, where you can catch a great alpine spa, and where the best marine life viewing spots are on the East Coast. Every spot we hit was incredible and so very different, and many were out-of-the-way, and nearly all were free of charge. In an expensive place like NZ, that was a welcome relief. Buy the book, you'll more than make your money back avoiding a catered tour that you can do yourself, only better.... Where else on this planet can you see a rainforest, glaciers, lakes with icebergs, mile high granite walls at fiordland, alpine vistas, super green rolling farmland, giant seastacks, waves bashing the coast, seals, dolphins, exotic birds, even a whale visible from the coast.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Knockout Resource 7. April 2012
Von Jihi Bustamante - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

My wife and I just finished a 3 week trip around the South Island of New Zealand with Scott Cook's book close at hand the entire time. While we also had Lonely Planet and a handful of NZ tourism brochures near by, it was NZ Frenzy that we found ourselves continuously referencing. The books detailed walks, detailed driving directions and accurate description of what to expect along the way helped us get the most out of our trip. As an example, the Lonely Planet put a two-line plug in for a Seal Colony near Kaikoura on the East Coast of the island. Their description was that you could see seals there and snap some good photos before moving on to Kaikoura for some big ticket wildlife tours. NZ Frenzy eclipsed Lonely Planet's two-line description with a 3 page entry, not only telling the best way to get to the colony, but also highlighting a little-known hike only a kilometer away that allowed you access to a favorite playground for the seal colony's baby seals. When my wife and I arrived at the colony, there were tourists galore and full-sized busses parked in the small space. We chose to immediately go to the trail head and found that the 'secret' hike had been outted by the NZ Tourism Department and there were swarms of tourists there also. Even then, we took Scott's advice to ignore the cute seals likely playing in a pool near the trail head (along with all the happy-snapping tourist hordes) and hike to the end of the trail (at easy 10 minutes). Within two minutes my wife and I were alone, and just a minute after that we were face to face with a second pool of flipping, barking, dancing seal pups - an NO tourists. Our walk included at least two other pools, each with a handful of pups, and each insulated against the press of other tourists who had no idea/interest in making the small hike that Scott Cook's book highlighted and emphasized. This is only one example, but we had similar experiences all over the island where NZ Frenzy helped us prioritize and enjoy hikes, historical sights, wildlife areas, and even restaurants that other books/brochures paid little credence too. If you are looking to explore NZ's South Island, this is absolutely a book you want to have with you. It is appropriate for all ages and all fitness levels and is well organized for planning and reference needs. We can't say enough good things about this book and hope Scott finds time to write similar books about other wonderful places! Well done, Scott!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why Limit It To 5 Stars? 6. Dezember 2010
Von A Thoughtful Consumer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
South Island (Slight Return)....Honestly, Scott Cook is the Jimi Hendrix of New Zealand travel. I mean he goes places and does things you would never think of and then inspires you to follow him and share in his joy of the place. If you already have his 1st book on the North Island, you know what I mean. However, this latest book kicks it up a notch and adds some really cool features. Each of the sites he visited has pictures, descriptions, and exact directions. Added to that is an 'Obscur-o-meter' that graphically describes just how far off the tourist track you could go if you wanted. Next he has posted the URL for online video of these sites-so you can see it before you go. Finally, there is his own Flickr/Blog site with tons of color pictures to dream on. The book ends off with some real solid advise on finding local wildlife. One of my favorite pages was about stargazing, NZ-style. He finds the Southern Cross for you but points out that constellations you know in the US sky are actually upside down and backwards in NZ. Surely a strange situation to contemplate over a nightly beer. Once again, as in Cook's 1st book, this is foremost about natural New Zealand- the countryside. Other books will tell you all you need about the cities of New Zealand, only Cook will tell you Motukiekie Beach is awesome but you better go at low tide.

Finally, the thing I like most about Cook's book is it's unleashed enthusiasm for NZ. If someplace is good (well 1st off, it's in his book) but next he accurately portrays the 'feel' of the place as he sees it. I really appreciate that kind of journalism. With some few exceptions, the literature of New Zealand and it's beautiful country is amazingly bland. NZ Frenzy is anything but that. It is exactly what it purports to be...the map to the 'hidden wonders' and will undoubtedly make your NZ trip something very wonderful.

3.0 von 5 Sternen I'm going to go crazy and make the first 3-star review. 15. April 2013
Von William M. Stenzel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
It's an odd book, but also a great book for a specific kind of trip to New Zealand.

-Odd.
NZ Frenzy feels half-finished. A guide book with no maps? (and the online maps are just screenshots of Google Maps). There are some fine off-the-beaten-track places in there, but there are some surprising omissions as well - it doesn't seem like he drove Highway 77, for example. Also no specific reviews of lodging, restaurants, or other services (except in passing). I bought this expecting something like the Hawaii "Revealed" series, but that's not what it is.

-Great book for a specific kind of trip to NZ.
So, what is it? If you have two weeks to visit NZ, you're renting a small caravan, have a limited budget, want to see the highlights, (and like to shower in waterfalls), this is the book for you. If you are tramping, you don't want it because there are only day hikes. If you are into fishing, you don't want it because there's really nothing about fishing. Etc. But, for its purpose, it's quite good. It will help focus your trip past some tourist traps, and towards "the good stuff." And that makes it an "ok" book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best guide book I have ever read 2. Februar 2011
Von Ben - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
My dad recently purchased this book as a guide to some sights in New Zealand. As someone who would much prefer slashing through wilderness with a machete to visiting a glacier in a tour bus, I can see eye to eye with the author very well. I appreciated the popularity ratings, detailed listings, and sandfly warnings. The author gives very good advice about when to visit the sites, ect. This would be my first recommendation to anyone searching for a guide book on new zealand and I look forward to seeing a couple more locations infiltrated and written about by the author. Five stars just doesn't quite cut it.......
