3.0 out of 5 stars Charming read, an escape from the grey skies of England., 6 Feb 2012
This review is from: A Good Year (Paperback)
I saw the film before I read the book and whilst there are differences between the two, I found them both to be charming in their own way. Who doesn't dream of a perfect life in Provence where the only stress in life is whether to choose between a coffee, a glass of wine or pastis? This kind of book is never going to be a masterpiece, but so what? It's easy to read, enjoyable, light-hearted and ultimately feel-good, which is exactly how I like to feel after reading a book or watching a film. I'm only giving it three stars, as I feel four and five stars should be reserved for work that deserves it, but it is a perfect three stars as I got exactly what I wanted from it, a feel-good feeling.

Out of 10 - 7.5
