A disappointing follow-up,
This review is from: The Olive Season: Amour, a New Life and Olives Too (Paperback)
I was really looking forward to reading this book after so enjoying "The Olive Farm", within the first few pages however I realized that this was going to be a disappointment. After reading the Olive Farm I grew to really like Carol and Michel, but after reading the first chapters on their wedding, I realized that I really don't like these people. Carol seems terribly self absorbed, and more concerned about her little world that she has created than anything else.
Without giving anything away from the story from those of you who will read it, I was very glad when this book was finished. If you liked The Olive Farm, don't buy The Olive Garden, it will disappoint you.

She was name dropping as if it was going out of fashion in 30 minutes she droped " kerry packer , Bruce Springsteen , elton John a couple more folk. She seemed nice
