"Hugely entertaining." (The Mirror)
"Funny and irreverent as ever." (Wanderlust)
"A warmly comic adventure." (Daily Mail)
I listened to this book over a fairly long period and that may affect the flow of the book, but on balance i was expecting the book to be more like the previous titles, which were primarily humorous travel books about people and places. Having said that, I still liked the slice of french village life and the observations which were well told. It's a gentle read, and not a rip snorter.
Probably star Juliette Binoche in the film versions ; -).
Perhaps I have a different view of this book as Kiwi guys tend to regard themselves good at D-I-Y and therefore some of the frustrations of the author in his house / pool building enterprises and van experience left me frustrated with the author's lack of skills /expectations; rather than the situations!
Have to write my own book so Tony can review it.
