Customer Review

on 1 February 2011
I lived in Portugal for 8 years, back in the late 80s and through to the mid-90s, so I know a bit about the country, the politics, and the people. Barry Hatton has done a wonderful job of getting under the skin of the place, and this has to be the best book in modern times about one of Europe's least known countries.

The author writes very entertainingly about Portugal's history, gastronomy, economy and culture, and he manages to find wonderfully apposite quotes and personal accounts to illustrate his points. If I were going on holiday to Portugal, or thinking of re-locating there, this book would be my first choice to get an in-depth understanding before I set out. But it's well worth reading on its own account, just for the quality of writing and entertainment value. Highly recommended!
