La forma expositiva en que el autor nos introduce cada pueblo, con datos sobre su ubicación, su latitud, su extensión, su historia, sus festividades, etc., no pretende ser exhaustiva, aunque se nota el esfuerzo por no dejar fuera detalles que pueden ser importantes.

Δεν μοιάζει με καμία αντίστοιχη μελέτη του είδους και κάνει το διάβασμα απολαυστικό και όχι "εκπαιδευτική διαδικασία".
