    " I think I need to do some more background reading on British Cyprus, but this is a very poetic and bittersweet memoir by a British expatriate in the mid-20th century. "

    " I could feel the Greek sunshine and smell the limes while reading the book. It was a good picture of the Isle of Cyprus before WWII when it was a British colony. Describing the slow-paced way of life on the island and the Greek and Turkish inhabitants from the point-of-view of an Englishman buying a home, getting to know his neighbors and learning the ins and outs of a different people. It did turn bitter as the title suggests as the political tides flowed towards violent opposition to British rule. "

    " It was fine I guess. I was disappointed because the Alexandria Quartet is my favorite. This was something else. "

    " I read this after hearing that it inspired someone to recently move to Cyprus. This is great travel writing, of the kind too often watered down these days. The characters always make the places fun, and interestingly, Beryl Markham is among them. "
