5.0 out of 5 stars A great yarn! 16 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've only recently returned to Peter Mayle, having read 'A Year in Provence' many years ago, but only after the t.v. series was made, which I didn't see at the time. I have a copy of the book from the series, with photos, which may not be helpful for the imagination. However, browsing a charity shop recently I came across a clean copy of 'A Vintage Affair' and I loved it. So I have since read three other Mayle stories.

'Anything Considered' is great fun, never too threatening but threatening enough and written in a liquid style. Try it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not one of his best 27 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a lover of the Peter Mayle books I was very disappointed with this one. It started well, gathered pace and interest, then lost it's way into a faintly ridiculous story with a very poor ending. Please Mr Mayle, no more of these.

Brilliant Upbeat story that was a pleasure to read. I wonder if they'll ever turn this one in to a film, there is certainly scope? Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do consider this book 18 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I first discovered this book while on holiday in lovely Jamaica at my hotel. When i arrived back i ordered a copy straight away. The book starts off with on a gentle motion of discription and then suddenly places you into a great action thriller.
One of the most unrealistic and unbelieveable books about, but i know you won't beable to put it down.

Good fun, plot jogged along in a typically Provence pace.

Interesting observations about the French and French customs and idiocyncracies.

Most enjoyable.
