4.0 out of 5 stars A must for the rucksack, 30 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Poisoned Petals (Paperback)
Picture yourself in a small tavern in the mountains of Andalucia, the Pyreneess, or the Sierra's. It doesn't have to be, maybe the parks and mountain ranges of Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado ... Yosemite. Wherever you walk and where ever you travel a book is the perfect companion.

Now.., imagine a slightly warm glass of Rioja, a few plates of simple tapas, the sun setting over the distant mountains and imagine tired aching muscles deservedley earned earlier in the day on the long but rewarding trek to nowhere in particular and back again. And imagine an ideal read to compliment that bottle of vino tinto. Imagine Spain.
Poisoned Petals by Andy Crabb is that perfect read.
Libros International have discovered a real gem, in Andy Crabb. A simply wonderful collection of stories with a Spanish flick. Just how does he do it? His writing talent is unquestionable, the stories are captivating, compulsive reading, written in the first person and the third person, from the viewpoint of male, female, young or old, it simply doesn't matter to Mr Crabb. In 'El Gorrero' there is a full novel in the making, possibly the best short story I have ever read, but with one big fault... I wanted more, I wanted a full novel, a Chris Stewart type yarn spanning three hundred pages. Chris Stewart but better. Congratulations Mr Crabb, quite simply a breathtaking holiday read, ideal for Spain or anyone longing to get there, ideal for anywhere rugged hot and dusty, a must for the rucksack of every hiker, rambler, or wanderer venturing to Spain but ideal for anyone just wanting to drift away in time, to escape the pressures of modern day life and float away into a world of pictures created by their own imagination with a little help from a genius of the written word.
