I love travel and moving abroad memoirs and was so pleased to read this first in a new series of Moving to Spain Memoirs by Jean Roberts. What an amazing cover too-it makes it an irresistible book!
I really liked her 'voice' coming through the writing. A nice quick first chapter got the book moving easily. More of the same followed, again, very pleasant, short and to the point chapters. It was a lovely, easy read with great info about the local foods. It was also informative-eg. the bit telling about harvesting olives. Historical details too.
I liked the funny mistakes with the lingo, very entertaining. I can't wait to read more from this author and am so pleased to see that there will be a sequel!
The book started out as some diary entries. What a lovely book has emerged from those.
