This review is from: DREAM A LITTLE DREAM (Audio CD)
Whatever possessed Pink Martini to make this album. Then"oh so nice" Von Trapps make this so anodyne and boring They should reserve their type of singing to an evangelical record company and not pollute the wonderful Pink Martini. This was a present to me, having got all previous albums. I don't want to pass it on for fear of destroying friendships. Please Thomas Lauderdale, don't do this again. Leave the Von Trapps to their lonely goatherds

Chris Stewart is a natural as a writer and communicator He conveys his love of Andalucian countryside, people, and observed human interaction with sympathetic humour and always self deprecation. Always eagerly awaiting the next instalment.

I knew this as being a story for younger readers but which was highly accalimed by adults and when I finally got round to reading it found it rivetting ...no question of writing down or down playing any part of this fascinating story

My 'headline' says it all and I can't think of any more words to add. It's very off putting to be asked to find a set number of words before pressing ' That's it.submit'

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining & informative, 21 Feb 2013

Great Fun!The author clearly knows her subject. Whether from research or experience there is an authentic ring to many of the episodes in this tale. The detailed description of working methods highlights problems and outcomes which members of the general reading public ( like me ) might not anticipate, but it's all woven into a well crafted story, with lots of chuckles throughout. Lots of varied characters and I kept picking up the book for an extra 'go' throughout the day. Good pace and would translate very easily into a TV mini-series .
