4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a satisfactory conclusion, 9 Jan. 2010
This review is from: A Celebration Of Olives (Paperback)
I've read the books in sequence, so was not surprised or disappointed by the few section where the author gets bogged down - I just skim read a few pages until it picks up again. By staying with local people and giving a frank opinion about what she sees, this final travelogue is a valuable insight into the countries visited, and a solemn warning about the risks of intensive farming around the Med. The heroine of the book may be the olive tree, but there is an underlying message about our stewardship of the terrain, the politics which prejudice a sustainable future, and the value of free speech which can so quickly and insidiously be snatched away. From Morocco to Italy, returning to France this book made a great read. I just want to know whether the olive fly has finally been conquered by the author. PS I wish I had realised so many of the photos referred to in the text are accessible on the website as I would have looked them up as I progressed through the book.
