Anyone who has worked or played in the Alps can relate to Andy's story. Its a laugh out loud diary account of himself and friend Dan running a chalet for the season. The ups and downs. The ins and outs. And the hard work that follows. It starts with him leaving a job he hates (which most of us can relate to) and heading off for fun times to be had. All I can say is, come the end, it makes you wanna go out and give it a go yourself.... Just maybe not working in a chalet though. Definitely worth a read. Wish it was longer. But we say that about all good books. Give it a go, you may just love it, and inspire you to do the same.
The writers reaction to hard work was hugely entertaining. Cleaning isn't very life enhancing at the best of times for the person doing it - and we are left in no doubt about Andy's aversion to it. On the other hand, he discovered what an inventive and successful cook he could be!
The difficult relationship with the bosses, coping with early morning starts (especially after the partying the night before), and in particular the often rude and sometimes strange behaviour of the guests, are all described in an amusing and keenly observed way.
This book offers a personal account of the authors experience of what might seem to be a glamorous job. A 'must read' if you are considering taking up a similar post!
Ended up reading it all very quickly!
Like others have said, it's a genuine 'page turner', and well worth the relatively small asking price.
This is officially my book of 2012
can't wait for more
So all in all, a bit of a disappointment.
