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.
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.
very euro (brit) centric with the analogies between cultures. formatting of content is unusual. overall worth reading
Great book to read before you think about moving to France.
One word: Boring! Didn't even finish it.
didn't like it as much as the other two.
