Informative, warts and all,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living In The Real Cyprus (Kindle Edition)
Cyprus is a country that has held great attraction for me for a few years. It's close enough to be able to return to my home country of England, where my children live, but far enough from there to promise a warm, sunny climate, inexpensive cost of living, and a relaxed lifestyle. But I didn't actually know anything of the reality of living there, so this book has been invaluable.
It is obvious that the author has a deep affection for the country and its people, and he has many charming anecdotes to tell. But it is not all sunshine and wine in Cyprus, as some of us might think, and this book does an excellent job of alerting potential buyers regarding the possible pitfalls they could encounter, particularly as regards travel to and from the island. Well worth reading for anybody considering moving there. Very informative, covering the good and the bad.
I avoided reading the chapter regarding cruelty to animals.
I'm quite surprised by the negative comments by two other readers, as I didn't find the book either boring or politically biased, just filled with useful information (in my opinion) for anybody considering moving there. Still, horses for courses. Personally I thought it was well-worth a couple of quid.
