Review:

I loved this honest and highly amusing account of leaving it all behindand heading to a Greek island. James has a brilliant command of theEnglish language and makes it altogether much more fun than Englishlanguage ever was at school! If I was to follow in James and Neil'sfootsteps then this is the book I would tuck under my arm and head toGreece with. I cannot wait to read it again.....and again.....andagain.....I want to be buried with it - which may well be sooner than I think since I nearly died laughing during some of his wittyobservations!

I bought this book whilst on holiday in Symi and decided to save reading it until I was home. This book brought memories of my holiday alive as the place descriptions were so accurate I could believe myself there.It gives a humorous account of 2 Brits moving to Symi and all the upsand downs that come with moving to a tiny island. I found myselflaughing out loud at some of the antics that James and Neil got up to. I am hoping to go back to Symi one day and will certainly be asking James "what do you do in winter". To understand what is behind my questionyou will have to read the book.

A must read if you've ever thought of moving away from it all andstarting afresh. James writes accurately about the trials andtribulations of living on a small, beautiful Greek island with humour in such a way that not only can you not help but fall in love with theisland AND James but makes you wish you could do it too despite knowingthe pitfalls that go with it.

Also by James and his partner Neil Gosling, 'Carry on Up the Kali Strata', further tales of life on a small island.

Look out for James' fictional story, Jason and the Sargonaughts, a laugh a minute.
