A Parrot In My Soup

Many of his stories are of comparisons of his simple life in rural French versus the similar village called ROCK where he was brought up in UK. Nobody is safe as he rants away about everything from the French peasants to the British expats, from red tape to red politics and from cheap wine to the price of sandwiches. Read it and weep.

Despite him covering as many lows as highs in his life, I found both it and the follow up book Who the Heck
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book or not but it was on my kindle so I must have purchased it for a reason.

It did have some sad moments, which were very personal to the author, but his overall views of the French really amused me, especially the one who turned up for the rugby with wine and then promptly left once the game was over. It was split up over a period of time focusing on month ...more

Some of this book is really funny as the author passes his opinions on a host of subjects. But then other bits are interesting as he pulls together snippets of life in France in what sounsd like an idylic lifestyle. I like this guy as he seems like he has been around!

Sounds like a good life this guy has over there.
