5.0 out of 5 stars Evokes the sights and smells of Mediteranean life, 29 Sept. 2013

A wonderful evocation of mediteranean life, culture, history and scenery, to say nothing of nationalist politics.
Durrel and Elizabeth David both excell at this.


The Great Game: On Secret Service in High Asia
The Great Game: On Secret Service in High Asia
Price: £4.35

5.0 out of 5 stars A compeling read, 29 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It reveals the political chichanery of the European Great powers and the viscious tyrany of Muslim states and tribal rulers which continues to this day.
In a way rather depressing for no solution to the conflict has yet been discovered.

I found it enthraling and revealing of my and I suspect many others lack of knowlege of 19th centuary history that has continued into the 20th & 21st
