These diaries are funny, with a host of comic characters that generally grow funnier as you get to understand them. The main character, Ernest Postlethwaite, I feel sorry for, made more intense by the fact we know that he dies prematurely, and his wife publishes his work. He tries so hard, and yet progress is so slow ... does that sound familiar? Amongst other themes, is his strife for a 'Good Life' (remember Richard Briers & Felicity Kendal?) But this lifestyle is far from what his wife Pamela had in mind when they moved to Spain. Pamela is as sharp as a knife ... but how does he meet his early death?
This work has been written by someone who knows about ex-pat life in Spain, and readers who are themselves in this position will be able to relate to many of the episodes in Ernest's Spanish life. All 3 parts are recommended reads.

I only read 9% of this book. I found it too dull to continue. Maybe I had a sense of humour failure? SorryPublished 5 months ago by Steve H
Actually quite amusing, but if Ernest had not mentioned his age, I would have thought he was 84 rather than 54. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Mary
I had thought, from several of the reviews, that it would be a subtle take on the British abroad....but I found it more plodding than subtle.Published 24 months ago by Helen Devries
