5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - a must read book!, 21 Oct. 2011
By 
This review is from: What the Immigrant Saw (Kindle Edition)
JP Floru's first book is a charmingly written account of Britain and its politics through the eyes of an outsider who soon becomes an insider.

Combining the style of travel writing with that of the political anecdote this ex-belgium and current Conservative politico writes a humorous account of 'What the Immigrant Saw'. An entertaining and informative read that is well written in a relaxed style that is easy to speed through - certainly an advantage as the book is un-put-downable.

Political anecdotes include meeting Lady Thatcher, being elected as councillor, running as an MEP and meeting Cameron. However, it is the intimately written personal account not just of these political episodes but of life in general that will ensure the reader will enjoy the book and the affectionate eye Floru casts over the eccentric inhabitants of his adopted home; from the British respect for queues to our enjoyment of picnics in parking lots.

These observations mixed with his distrust of bureaucracy and meddling politicians, an excellent analysis of the current economic situation (written in a jargon-free manner) and an account of getting on in politics ensures the resulting book is both amusing and informative.

This may be Floru's first book, but it hopefully won't be the last the, rather the first of many.
