This book has been written as a guide to anyone who is thinking of living in Cyprus, to point out the pros and cons, and is full of useful advice that would prove invaluable to anyone who is considering this. I'm not considering moving to Cyprus but I still found the book to be fascinating. My husband and I had a holiday in Cyprus just before the country joined the euro zone. The country had made quite an impression on us, good and bad, so I found it very interesting to find out more about areas that we had visited, learn more about the Greek Cypriots and about the effect that the divided country and joining the euro had on their lives.

Although the book is aimed at giving advice to anyone who is thinking of living in Cyprus, either full time or part time, I think that others would find this book interesting. If you enjoy travel books, which I do, you may also enjoy this.

If you are looking for a book about living in Cyprus and the associated caveats then this isn't it.

If you want a rambling memoir about what the author had for lunch and where he went for a walk then you will be well satisfied. Any useful information is well hidden and any points the author makes are done so laboriously. If you can imagine being trapped in a pub by a retired colonel who imagines everybody finds his anecdotes fascinating then you are still nowhere near how dull, tedious and pointless this book is.

An account packed with interesting information about the island of Cyprus, however I found the presentation less than perfect; as if the author had assembled a series of his articles on the subject and cobbled them together into a book. Despite his assurances that he wished to avoid repeating himself, I felt that this was happening too often. Nevertheless it was interesting to read of changing lifestyles in Cypriot communities and to 'hear' the author's word pictures of the people.

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.

enjoyed the book but as someone who lives in North Cyprus myself, i found some of his views of the North, and the people from there, to be quite offensive and misguided. Other than that, a pleasent little book.

Good, clear advice but the whole chapter dedicated to cycling etc....not of any interest to me. My family live in Cyprus - spread across the southern part of the island - so I know some of the places referred to, including Karydia cottage where we stayed about 10 years ago.
