From the Driving Over Lemons author. Not as good as the books set in the south of Spain though the portion in Greece has funny moments.

Third book in the Driving Over Lemons series. Humorous anecdotes, musings on Spanish culture and enjoyable characters. Read the others in the series first.

Fairly simple read. Makes me yearn for Spain. More autobiographical than the first book, going over Chris Stewart's earlier life.

Read this because I am interested in Spain and the countryside in general.
Very humorous and never vulgar.
Read if you like James Heriot

Odd in parts, magnificent in others.
Not a regular SF reader but liked this.
Have never seen the film either.
The chapters on the voyage to Saturn with the HAL system are chilling.

This review is from: The New Spaniards (Kindle Edition)
My first read of John Hooper. Don't often read non-fiction either but this appealed to me.
Essentially a modern history of Spain from the end of the Franco regime to 2006 with many comparisons with earlier times.
Some areas I found fascinating but others are more specialized such as a chapter on flamenco and bullfighting.
Read if interested in Spain and particularly Spanish politics.

Interesting though I'm not totally convinced that healthcare hasn't gone too far down the route of checklists now. Read if you work in healthcare especially surgery.

Excellent, the first book I have found of this kind. May be unique due to the hero's British background. Read this if you liked ... homage to Catalonia

As good as Hemingway's other works in many ways. Maybe not as much character development as some other books. Beautiful settings.

Told from the perspective of a deaf and dumb Native American, make you think. I've always been a fan of the movie. The book is identical except Jack Nicholson doesn't look like the McMurphy in the book.
