Dreadful book. I love books about France, being a Brit married to a Frenchman, living in France and enjoy having a chuckle at traits that I recognize. There are factual inacurracies throughout this book, starting on the first page. Ms Frith Powell talks non stop about her rich and sucessful friends, is very much based on an ex-pat, upper middle class (monnied) lifestyle, rather than normal every day life in France.

As I will be realising my dream and moving to France this year, More More France Please has been a wonderful book to read. Not only for the excellent information provided, but also given with a good sense of humour. At least now I know what to expect when dealing with everyday living in France. However, as it was written some 5 years ago some of the links are no longer available - but I am so very much more informed as to the issues when I decide to purchase a house/property.

A great read

Good book with lots of humour describing moving to France from UK and the differences, challenges and how to live with them / get around issues. Describes the legal and practical aspects of establishing your family in a new (although very close and similar in many ways) country.
