Product Description

Synopsis

The hilarious story of two families travelling through France for four weeks of camping. Their journey brings them into contact with a variety of situations illustrating the quirkier side of a country which, Denis, the hero, is passionately in love with. Denis is a Francophile. He loves the roads, he loves the food, its variety, and he loves the way it is eaten. He loves the pace of life, the empty spaces, the depth of culture and the Gaelic shrug; he just loves France big time. So now, he is off again to drink in its bounteous pleasures, a few weeks of indulgence out of a year of dreadful routine, general boredom, stress, strain, crap, and Christmas! Fairly squat, though not significantly overweight, Denis is conscious that without much effort he could be, and so attempts to subscribe to a regime of healthy natural foods and healthy living. Denis is, generally, the kind of person who does not expect a lot out of life, but just a little now and then. His romanticism however can sometimes be out of concert with the practicalities and realities of life.

From the Publisher

‘I simply can't be critical of such a fun and inspiring piece of writing. It has direction and leaves you wanting more…’ Ainsley Harriott

"Thoroughly good read. Plenty of laughs along the way in this camping extravaganza through France. A great mix of characters all with their own idiosyncracies and hidden agendas. Full of amazing incidents and told in a light-hearted, roller-coaster fashion. Enjoy!" Tim Healy

This is an endearing, funny, charming and thoroughly British story of a group containing three generations of a family. from. a four year old to an 80 year old, a stroppy teen and four adults each getting into their own levels of mischief and misadventure, on an extended summer driving holiday in France, which is deliberately not too planned, finding campsites as they go along on their journey and trying to sample all that France has to offer. To get some of the jokes, it helps if you have experience of the ups and downs of camping in a large group, of trying to keep people of multiple ages and interests happy simultaneously, of driving in France, and of the cultural differences with our French neighbours that can be in equal parts frustrating and appealing. Typos are common with Kindle books, but they do not distract too much from what is a funny light read. I finished it in a day but it left me in a good mood, and quite keen to get back across the Channel.

Thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted and witty read. Having spent many holidays pitching tents with the family in various French campsites, the story is one that any self-confessed Francophile can relate to.

Prepare to laugh out loud!

This is a great book. Take it with you on your next trip to France. When you have put up,your tent and into your first glass of red laugh with this strange family on their annual holiday to France; anyone who has decided on a camping holiday will sympathise with a grand dad who needs the loo constantly and gets lost finding one, wives who use war paint to chase French men, and Brits wearing thongs. In all a good read and huge fun.

This has the potential to be an excellent book, which I feel can equal Paul West's (Stephen Clarke) Merde series. It sounded exactly like our last family holiday in France!

However, I struggled to read it-mainly due to the incorrect grammar and punctuation. As I was approaching the end of
the book, I was aware of basic mistakes on every page. Some of them included "all though" , " thankyou" and " your/ you're "There's no excuse I can think of apart from it hasn't been proof-read at all.

I'm happy to offer my services as a proof-reader!

I had never read the comments on proof reading etc until after I read the book. Glad I wasn't the only one that noticed. Besides the strange grammar one of the main people in the book was Clare but sometimes she became Claire which confused at first because I thought we had a new person in the family but I got used to her name keep altering from one to the other after a while. It was quite funny in parts and I got through it eventually. I think for the money I don't regret downloading it
