Format: Paperback
I have just finished reading this book and whilst it gave an insight into the lifestyle of ex pats in the late 80's I foun d it was a bit flat, it was written similarly to Carol Drinkwaters tales in Southern France.

Perhaps I am being a little unfair as I compare this writing to that of Peter Kerr and Chris Stewart, in my opinion better and funnier writers.

If you like tales of what cats get up to living in Andalucia then this may be for you, but not for me..

An interesting and amusing insight into life in a foreign country in the 80's. All of us stuck in our 'way of life' imagine an easy lifestlye for all those who choose to go and live in warmer climes !! NOT SO ! This book illustrates just how versatile and resourceful people have to be to try and make things work when outside influences have such an impact on day to day life but as the book shows, a sense of humour is vital to pave the way to success and just to keep going against the odds!! Book 2 on it's way?

This account of life as it really is for your average couple without much money in the Spanish countryside, warts and all, made me laugh until my sides hurt. The illustrations are excellent and add another dimension. I can't wait for "what happened next", what about it Alex?

I really enjoyed this fast moving and thoroughly amusing tale. Alex has painted a vivid and fascinating picture of life for a brave but innocent couple buying their first property in Spain. The succession of difficult but hilarious situations and her perception and description of all the colourful characters involved kept me riveted to the end.

I have read a lot of this type of book, it was okay but didn't hold my interest as much as some of the others that I have read. Maybe a holiday read.

Having spent quite some time in the region where the book is set, I found the book highly enjoyable. Alex has a very compelling writing style and tells her story with honesty and humour. I can't understand some of the slightly negative reviews, I found the book captivating and read the whole thing very quickly - I am hoping that Alex writes more !!

Despite the fact that this book details moving abroad some years ago it provides a good sense of the highlights and pitfalls of this kind of learning curve. Alex writes in a way that allows you to care about her and her family - although not necessarily about all the people they meet!
