A pleasurable book that was beautifully narrated. Story was better than the movie. Easy to listen to on a long flight.
Nothing like the movie but enjoyable none the less. However it's a bit disconcerting when the storyline is so different from a movie you absolutely loved!
"A Good Year. By Peter Mayle."
Charming, witty, unpredictable and thoroughly entertaining. Tim Piggot-Smith does an excellent job as narrator. One of those all too rare books you don't want to end.
"A Good Year"
I really enjoyed this book. It is a feel-good story about sunshine, friends and wine in the South of France.
Love it. Fun and easy listening with a good "corkscrew" plot. Provence, a vigneron, two pals and a pretty girl!
"Another *very* good story from Peter Mayle"
Not particularly but I read the book years ago, greatly enjoyed it, and wanted to re-hear the story.
The final twist
Laugh, definitely, and ache for the good life portrayed so wonderfully.
"When you need to relax this is just perfect"
In this book Peter Mayle delivers great fun, great characters and you can just relax and let your mind enjoy it. The plot is not huge, the pace is medium, you laugh at his descriptions of wonderful meals and the sybaritic parts of life but it's FUN.
The performance is well paced and he gets the french right without being either patronising or silly.
I listened to this driving home from work over a week and it set me up for a relaxed evening.
Download it, enjoy it, relax.
"A Good Year Peter Mayle"
This was a very enjoyable listen as it is not heavy but entertaining and a good story. Just right for an evening listen after a hard day at work. It makes me want to be there and be part of such a community. Life as we knew it!
Charlie,a real card but Max good too.
Liked the delivery and kept me listening
I want to be there!
