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 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.
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.
