Korea Kimchi and ...just Heaven !
on 8 May 2017
I have just finished Jen Barclay's " Meeting Mr Kim " ...I know a few years late ! I first became acquainted with Jennifer;s writing after reading " Falling into Honey " and " An Octopus in myOuzo". As a consequence I have booked a holiday to Tilos this summer....Can't wait !
Getting back to the review I have come to the conclusion that I love Ms Barclay's writing ,she is " up my street" as they say. As in previous books She enveloped me with the sights,sounds and smells of Korea. Kimchi ...would love to try it .....do they sell it in Tesco's ?? Jennifer has tremendous courage to travel and sometimes alone in foreign unknown countries . Accepting lifts and staying with strangers could have turned out very differently but Jen has amazingly good instincts that have served her well. It was interesting and informative to read the historical notes at the beginning of each chapter and reading about little known North Korea was fascinating ! Loved it ...please write more !!
