To get the not so good bit out of the way first, yes a few typos and the 'Waterloo Station' error but actually does that detract from this engaging book about an Englishman finding his way in Spain? .. No, I don't think so.
Although, in my opinion, Madrid is not one of the great capital cities of the world Ben goes a long way to explain why it is a city some, me included, must always go back to again and again or never quite leave..
When I finished this book I was delighted to see that Ben and his wife have gone on to create an on-line language business and an occasional blog (occasional owing to the demands of the business and family life).
So in sum you have a delightful and always insightful look into Spain and a young man starting out in life ... and should you wish to update or learn modern peninsular Spanish expressions, it looks like Ben and Marina can help.
