More About the Author

Barry French. Born in March 1971 in Watford, where he lived until the ripe of age of 28. He got a job in the City of London as a recruitment consultant, so moved out to deepest Essex as it was easier to commute. It was in Essex he became a DJ in the local pub and developed a love of the countryside.

Barry moved to Hampton Hill, in the London Borough of Richmond in May 2011 to be with his partner, the very tolerant Samantha.

The authors passions are travel, classical music and Watford Football Club. He also enjoys cycling and walking and recently enjoys unwinding watching and photographing the many deer in Bushy Park.

His humour is not to everybody's taste. He seems to think of it as 'intelligent humour', although in reality will crack up laughing at good old-fashioned knob gag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Holiday I remember. 2 Jan 2014
By V. Dodd
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book, as I have visited Malta several times, I just had to have it. I think Mr French did a brilliant job in writing this, I can relate with several things he wrote about. Malta is a love it or hate it country. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you Mr French thoroughly enjoyed it. I actually recited half of it to my Husband.

Just returned from Malta and was recommended this book by someone we met on holiday. It was good to read about places that we had been to and places we had not, but would go again to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and informative 24 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read this a couple of times now. The author writes in an easy, conversational style, and takes you through his holiday to Malta with his recently widowed father. I chuckled out loud a few times at the scrapes the pair got into and it made me want to go to the places they visited.

One thing stupidly annoyed me, and that was the chapter on Gozo. It wasn't the chapter that annoyed me really, but the fact that the pair fell foul of a scam whilst there. Having visited Gozo many times I was disappointed that it wasn't painted in a more positive light, and that their experience with a rogue taxi driver coloured their entire trip. I would suggest a return visit one day!

However, I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who is planning a trip to the Maltese mainland, as it is a good personal account of the sights and sounds of the island.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read 1 Nov 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the way Barry wrote this, in a conversational way. The way he goes into side stories or background is a bit odd; like the story of him on a driving lesson. I just wanted to read about Malta as I'm going there for Christmas.
The book is very honest about the sights to be seen at each place on the islands, which is good.
Barry's language can be colourful in places such as swear words and non-PC descriptions of an invalid or electric wheelchair.
Don't get me wrong, I'm from Glasgow and can swear like a trouper, but thebad language came as a bit of a surprise in this, that's all.
For the money, this was a good read and I'm glad I downloaded it to my kindle. I think I'd get on well with Barry....

Quite enjoyed this book but the Author is quite ascerbic and I do not like to be peppered with swearing, it wasn't really necessary for the dialogue and found him exceedingly disrespectful of religion and whereas Mr French is very entitled to his opinion I found the disrespect just too much to take

As a regular visitor to Malta I found this book most entertaining and amusing despite one or two discrepancies, but still a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2 blokes on Malta 20 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An OK read but not enough about the nature of Malta itself. Rather self-referential and says more about the writer and his companion than about the island and its people.
