About this author

Sarah Bringhurst has lived on five different continents during the past fifteen years, and she's still not sure where she'd like to settle down. In the meantime, she likes reading books, eating cheese, and seeing the world. She's gone to the Philippines with a two-month-old baby, blazed a red-taped paper trail to Italian citizenship, snuck into abandoned regency manor houses in Ireland, and moved to Tunisia the week after the Revolution. Sarah currently lives in Florida with her husband and two children while she plots her next exotic escape--to a beach commune on an island in Greece.

Someone in acquisitions at my library is apparently as taken by Doctor Who as I am, since I've probably checked out a dozen or more books similar this one, which is a sort of documentary-type book about the series.

This one, though, is by far my favor...more

I've kept this on my currently-reading shelf for quite a while, but finally realized that I was never going to finish it. For one thing, it's so long! I like long books, but only if I like them, so I must not like this one very much if it feels like...more

This is far from the best expat memoir I've ever read. It probably only deserves maybe 2.5 stars. But I'm moving to a Greek island, so I did enjoy it quite a bit and I've rounded up my rating.

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

T.E. Lawrence
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”
T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
