A fabulous book for dipping in and out of (like tzatziki?!)
on 30 March 2013
I live in Greece on an island near Rhodes, where author John Manuel has made his home for many years now, and I found this collection of writings about life in Greece completely entertaining and full of useful and interesting information on cultural nuances and everything from cheap and simple ways to keep pests off your fruit trees to a poignant assessment of the true cost of cheap all-inclusive holidays for both the locals and the consumer. You gain an insight into the very rewarding life he and his half-Greek wife have built in a quiet part of Rhodes, yet each of the short chapters works as a stand-alone piece. I found the final quarter of the book an ideal way to pass the late-night ferry journey from Rhodes to Tilos last night! I managed to buy my Kindle copy for the price of a coffee, so you can't say fairer than that. I'll certainly be buying other books in the series.
