I worked very hard to finish this book. Unfortunately quite slow, not gripping and anti- climactic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book, 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed going through this book. There are great recipes from 5 different countries and very many can be made without a dehydrator, which I liked. I also enjoyed each separate introduction to the countries mentioned, great narrative plus great food! I thoroughly recommend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed this!!!!, 3 April 2012

This review is from: Acquired Tastes (Paperback)
This book is excellent- beautifully written of course since it is Peter Mayle and so funny. He draws you in to this wonderful world of luxury and you really are hooked. I particulary liked the chapter on The Connaught Hotel- he says well-trained, well-paid staff who know your name and what you love really are a luxury- so true.

This review is from: Chasing Cezanne (Paperback)
I've just finished this book and was hooked. The characters were fantastic, I learnt a lot about the art world and I laughed out loud many a time. If you feel like a fantastically written, fun, light read I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Health book I've Read!!!!, 17 Nov. 2011

A classic. Weil's background is as a Harvard Medical School graduate, and his knowledge of powerful alternative medicine, from all over the world is incredible. He is the first point of call when looking into what alternative medicines and procedures to go for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie!, 17 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely. Romy Schneider is beautiful and charming. The story of Sissi, the Empress of Austria, is told as a fairy tale so expect it to be a little sacharine in the same way that The Sound of Music or The King and I are, but it's completely magical escapist pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed!!, 21 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is such a wonderful book. Having lived in Spain for for a few months I was still having problems with conjugation of verb, especially the past tense. It was just not sinking in!!

This book helped in clearing this up due to its infinite number of exercises, including the subjunctive. I was able to speak naturally without having to mentally conjugate verbs when in mid sentence.

I wish I had discovered this book when I first moved to spain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what you need when talking to Spanish Friends!!, 21 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is just what I had been looking for, it is invaluable. It has all those words and phrases, slang etc needed to talk fluently with Spanish friends. Everyday expressions that you will not find in a text book!

Highly recommended to anyone living in Spain or who has Spanish friends.
