2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing follow up
Having really enjoyed It started with an ouzo, I immediately bought this and have lived to regret it. What a repetitive book, and so many photographs, which on a Kindle just don't work. Wouldn't recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could do better, 9 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Watching The Olives Grow (Kindle Edition)
Why is there this prologue - do we really need to know again which destinations Mr. and Mrs. A. have travelled to? A lot of the text and some of the photos have been repeated from "It started with an Ouzo". If you have read the "ouzo" book I would not bother with this edition. Both volumes would be better incorporated into one. Contents need checking, including layout.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 21 July 2013

This review is from: Watching The Olives Grow (Kindle Edition)
I struggled to read this to the end hoping it would improve but it didn't. There were too many repeats of words, phrases, word in italics and so on.

As an ex school teacher I felt it could have been written by a GCSE candidate - average grade.

2.0 out of 5 stars Same again!, 10 July 2013

This review is from: Watching The Olives Grow (Kindle Edition)
Perhaps it is because I read this book straight after reading "It Started With An Ouzo" but I found it quite repetitive and really did not add anything new. To be honest most of the so called disasters in this book are events that the rest of us call part of life. I did not feel that I learnt that much about the area or the people and I certainly was less than gripped by the progress of the Olive tree through the months.

Very enjoyable follow up to "it started with an Ouzo" as someone who is looking to move to Greece it has provided interesting insights into some if things you wouldn't have thought of. Will definitely download the 3rd in the series when available.

I really enjoyed this book -story of one man's move to a completely different lifestyle in rural Greece and the ups and downs that followed.Would describe as the "easy listening " of literature.Would appeal most to those who have experienced laidback Greek rural living on holiday and enjoyed or been attracted by it.

Would recommend

It may not be well proof read (as other reviewers have said) but for someone who knows and loves the Mani there's lots of interesting information. Bravo to Stuart/Stavros for having the courage to follow his dream and share his experiences.
