If I had purchased the paperback edition of this book I would at least have been able to use it for fuel. It really is not well written, being littered with grammatical errors and spurious details about the Greek Islands. No, Kos is not the third largest Greek Island, as a previous reviewer points out, and even though Greek menu English is creative, I have never seen the spellings used by the author. The dialogue runs the gamut of trite to downright silly, and the plot, despite attempts at philosophical musings, is distinctly weak. "the boat had sank" is hardly a phrase I would expect a graduate in English to use, and that is just one example of slipshod writing. Even at Kindle prices, this book is not to be recommended.one Greek certainly is enough in this case.

If you love books that sweep you away to a place faraway then this book is for you, a fabulous short story to keep you entertained and keep your mind off the norm.

Would definately recommend!

I read the authors first book and liked the style so downloaded this. It is a book that ended too soon for me. I got to the last page and wished there had been another couple of chapters. Perhaps this is hinting at a sequel?

A very enjoyable book with enough humour to lift the spirits but not so much as to make it a comedy. The story comments so well on life that you cant help wondering if more than a bit of the story reflects the authors life. Looking forward to a sequel

The author gets the feeling and flavour of the young people's Greek holiday in the mid-eighties very accurately, and you can feel that you are there. However, some of the other details I found unlikely, and that puts me off a story. This young woman had a gift of a £3000 Mini from her father when she went to university and did not get an MOT for two years. That was a great deal of money in the early 80's. Did she also not tax and insure it then? Why was it such a wreck three years later that she accepted £300 for it? How did she get herself in such a situation that Bailiffs came to get things from her flat? They would have needed a court order. University was still free in those days and there were also student grants, as well as extra for hardship cases. If she was so badly off why did she not get a Saturday job like many other students? These kind of small details really can spoil a story for me. Also, there did not seem to be an ending, the story just stopped.

Unconvincing in every area - plot, character - except possibly description of Kos nightlife. Far too simplistic for me. Glad I only paid 99p.

It was a bit boring, nothing much happened. All an anti climax. Not overall very well written - negative I know.

Chose book as I loved Greek life in the 80's. Didn't feel book was particularly well written with fairly obvious storyline. Also very similar to another book published in the 80's. Ending could have been more imaginative.
Having been to both islands, they were described well.
It was an easy read but I would t recommend to friends

This is a good, well written, amusing holiday read about a young girls experiences on holiday in Greece.
I like the way the pace changes between the UK and Greece. In the UK the pace is slow, almost boring, but as soon as she lands in Greece the tempo goes through the roof.
When she returns home to Wales the pace slows back down and you feel your holiday is over. I was left feeling like I wanted her to go back to Greece and have the joy of reading her exploits return to me.
To the Author - Please write another one.
