Take a good camera and lots of film with you when you travel to the Greek islands and you are bound to score - stunning little white-washed houses with their blue doors and shutters will always result in some great pictures. "Living in Greece" lets you a sneak a look behind some of these blue doors. Not randomly chosen doors: they take you into houses (summerhouses mainly) of artists, architects, decorators and well-to-do Greeks. Barbara and René Stoeltie only needed to visit four or five islands to gather enough material to fill 200 glossy pages and put it all together as a nice, if not very original coffee-table book. The book is not a bad buy: it is very reasonably priced, and the photographs are good, but the text, loaded with clichés, is rather banal and not very informative. Also, you wonder what the added value is of full page photographs of details such as a kitchen sink with a few brightly coloured sponges and kitchen utensils, a shower that could be anywhere in the world, or a rather kitsch little pillow. This book is definitely not in the same league as 'Amazon.com partner book' "Greek Style".
