I am an Islander by Patrick Ledwell

Comedian Patrick Ledwell has put into a book many of the observations he has been making in numerous appearances on stage and radio. This 165-page book is comprised of a number of short chapters on such topics as “The PEI Flag”, “Anne of Green Gables vs. the Potato”, “A Few Signs of Intelligent Life on Prince Edward Island”, “PEI Voter turnout” and “Under the Acadian Influence”.

I so enjoyed this book! Ledwell’s insights into life on Prince Edward Island captu
I bought an armful of books about Prince Edward Island on the second-to-last day of vacation there, when I didn't want to leave. I thought they would remind me of what it felt like to be there. This book is light, fun, amusing, but probably not of particular interest to anyone who doesn't love PEI.
I was given this book as a housewarming gift, well suited as I just moved to the island from "Away". This quick read was funny and charming and *hopefully* has given me some insight as to what to expect as a "from Away" Islander.
J and I literally LOL'd many times at this:) Smart and on-point, although occasionally sappy.Pokes fun at us, but nicely:P
