Inspired by breathtaking views, and dreaming of finding love and romance in the mountains, Tony Hawks impulsively buys a house in the French Pyrenees. Here he imagines he will finally fulfil his childhood fantasy of mastering the piano, untroubled by the problems of the world. However, Tony's account of stumbling into the world of overseas home ownership is perhaps best heard as a useful manual of how not to go about buying a house abroad. The man who once travelled around Ireland with a fridge is hopelessly ill prepared for this latest adventure - though the consequences are hilarious. Download and start listening now!

    " Not as good as his other books "

    " I read round Ireland with a fridge years ago by the same author and it was fantastic. This book wasn't as slap your knee funny but it was more thoughtful and you can tell Tony has aged and matured. Even if he isn't any wiser. ;-) "

    " After enjoying his past books and his numerous appearances on Just a Minute , I wanted something more out of this book. I don't know if i disliked it on its own or if it is mainly the disappointment when compared to his other, more enjoyable work. "

    " Filled time, but not my expectations - I might consider giving his other books a try, but I didn't find this one particularly insightful or clever ... just "there". "
