This is a really remarkable performance throughout; the text is beautifully spoken and the Italian setting gives the story real depth and the vivid quality that such light engenders.

I could never, of course, hate the poems, but you have managed to produce such an annoying version with lines turned into half-lines and crammed up against the right hand side of the page,.making them very irritating to read. How could you be so careless!

there is something of the same problem with the poems of both Christina Rossetti and Emily Dickinson where you have broken the poems in two when the number of lines would indicate that each poem could be contained within a page.

Bonnes Vacances!: Sharing a House in France: 1
Bonnes Vacances!: Sharing a House in France: 1

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual French house hunting, 21 Sep 2009
This is a fascinating and detailed account of a group of Britons searching for and buying a house together in France. It is not the usual saga of a couple or a family moving into a tumble-down farmhouse. This group chose to buy a huge house in a French market town, acquring over the years many local friends and acquaintances as they do so. Of course things do not go smoothly, but among them they muster those who can speak good French, some who understand [and others who can tackle] the immensely complex legal peculiarities of buying abroad, some who have a vision of the garden and others who have a vision for the house. Throughout, there are lovely descriptions of the town, the people, and the countryside so that you feel that you could almost arrive at their front door if you knew which town they were in. But you don't; the author has very deliberately kept this from us, leaving an intriguing and delightful picture of the whole adventure.
