The Kings in the Kasbah by Maggi Smith
The Kings in the Kasbah by Maggi Smith
5.0 out of 5 stars couldn't put it down!, 28 July 2014
I picked this book up in error. I thought it was a travel memoir. However, how fortuitous! I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end! Well done to the author, Maggi Smith. The story was beautifully told; well edited, with very few if any mistakes. More please!
Paw Prints in Oman: Dogs, Mogs and Me by Charlotte Smith

As an ardent fan of the Middle Eastern and North African countries, this book gave me an insight into life below the corporate level which I hadn't thought of before. I knew that attitudes there were different regarding animals but I didn't quite realise just how different! Charlotte relates her story excellently, without swamping the reader in sentimentality. I was also surprised at the apparent freedom in Oman. One expects all women to be forced to wear the abaya etc. Now I shall look forward to reading the next book based from Spain! :-) Yes, Charlotte?
Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca? by Alan Parks

Having just finished this book I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really don't know how the author or his partner survived the first couple of years, but survive they did, and probably were better and stronger for it. I know Alan has at least one more book to be read, and I really hope these will be the start of many.
