Listener Opinions

    " Crazy dude moves his entire life to Andalucia to start again. He buys a home on a whim and proceeds to overcome obstacles to try to fit into a new landscape and culture. It was a charming little diversion of a book, though I never felt that moment of kinship with the author that made me understand why he did what he did. Ultimately, it was all a bit forgettable, but if you like a nice bit of fluff, this isn't bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally Doyle | 2/5/2014

    " I want to read anything by Chris Stewart. Fiction is not my bag; my new favorite category is travel books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lizzie Blueyondercouk | 1/25/2014

    " A brilliant book with the feel good factor, makes you want to escape, a great holiday read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 1/19/2014

    " It takes huevos to buy a farm sight unseen by your wife, pack all your posessions in a Land Rover and start a life off the grid in the mountains of Spain. This made me laugh outloud. A thoughtful and lighthearted account of their adaptations to a new culture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 1/15/2014

    " Really good! I have family in Andalucia and this is pretty good account of what life can be like in the country there.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crichards | 1/12/2014

    " we used to have a little house in Spain, tucked away in a white village in the sierra almijaras. This book takes me back to the people, the food and drink and the lovely relaxed way of life. I will look forward to reading the "parrot" book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 1/11/2014

    " Adventures of ex-pat English after buying a remote farm in Andalucia, Spain and learning to cope with lack of running water, electricity, as well as droughts and floods. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille | 12/28/2013

    " This books makes me want to just pack up our family and start all over in some remote part of a third world country living on the land and being proud of being brave enough to choose life with a little adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dreamer | 12/9/2013

    " Entered in diary from 2000 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee Green | 12/7/2013

    " Not the greatest book on earth, and a bit slow at times,but interesting nevertheless. I'm just not really sure what the point was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 12/5/2013

    " I started this book with trepidation as I thought it was going to another Peter Mayle type book, but I was really surprised how much I liked the author (not nearly as egocentric as Mayle). Very enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Corke | 11/26/2013

    " Stewart's adventure in Andalucia is what dreams are made of and has been an absolute delight to read about. The lush gardens set within the mountains seems an idyllic location to set up home and he'll be the envy of millions 'living the dream'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/23/2013

    " Really enjoyed this Andalucian version of "A Year in Provence" which chronicled a British family's purchase of an old farm in Andalucia and all of the cultural/social/physical adjustments required to make the transition to farm life in a foreign country. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 11/21/2013

    " Great memoir of making a new life in Spain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaff | 9/14/2013

    " A very enjoyable read with a humourous quirky look at ex-pat life on a farm in Spain. Looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Izzy | 8/8/2013

    " Wonderful book to read while on holiday in Southern Spain "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 7/27/2013

    " Recommended by my sister who says it is a cross between Peter Mayle (A Year in Provence, etc.) and Bill Bryson (A Walk in the Woods, etc.). I'm looking forward to reading it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renate | 6/23/2013

    " Fun book about living in Spain with your family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 5/10/2013

    " This is a great book for anyone that dreams of living in Europe like Ed and I do... It is set in Spain and written by the former drummer of Genesis(?)(before the band got big - doesn't he feel stupid for quitting :). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 3/29/2013

    " Stopped reading about midway through because the author isn't a good writer nor a good storyteller. He is good at entertaining himself with adventures and travels, but not telling the stories of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SP | 2/7/2013

    " Oh no not another move-to-rural-utopia memoir. But I forgive this one because it's strictly non-pretentious, non-precious, gentle and funny. And rather well-written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Coles | 9/26/2012

    " A wonderful,well written and funny feel good book. Bought on my way to New York, finished in two days. Travelled to the area of Andalucia many many times since and all down to this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 9/1/2012

    " One of my favorite travel books ever. Similar to "A year in Provence" but so much better! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Monica | 7/17/2012

    " Guess I'm not going to finish this one. Mainly picked it up because I enjoyed his book about sailing, and because I'd overlooked this book for years despite my interest in Andalucia. But it's just not grabbing me, and I guess I just find books about setting up a farm or household fairly dull. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ianblackburn | 3/27/2012

    " Feel good, quirky, uplifting story of rural life "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lenah | 11/21/2011

    " Funny and warm! Not pretentious! I really like this light hearted book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathi | 6/10/2011

    " Good to go along with the Peter Mayle and Frances Mayes books and a fun summer read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abigailann | 5/14/2011

    "
    This memoir takes the reader into the idealic, but sometimes challenging, world of rural Andalucia. This is a work of pure escapism and a totally different way of living. A gentle, but enjoyable read. You almost feel as if you are there! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruthie | 4/28/2011

    " Took me a while to get into this book, but it was a nice taste of adventure in Spain. Everyday tasks transformed into adventures in a foreign place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mic | 4/22/2011

    " It was okay I suppose. I would give it more stars if I wasn't so envious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 4/12/2011

    " This poor man met really not nice people in Spain. It made me sad to see how poorly he was treated, repeatedly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/17/2011

    " A lovely, gentle book. Brilliant tales of a life a world away from Birmingham. Looking forward to reading the next two. "
