Kitap o kadar güzeldi ki, okuduğumdan beri yaz sonunun bir kısmını Girit'te geçiriyorum!

Dikkat! Bu çok tehlikeli bir kitap!

İstanbul'da doğup büyüyen ve Kanada'ya yerleşip başarılı bir şef olan Byron Ayanoğlu'nun kökenine, Girit'e yaptığı yolculuğu okumak öylesine keyifli ki kitabın 179. sayfasında Girit'e uçak bileti aldım!

Ruhum şenlendi sahiden.
Bazı kitapların okuyucusunu bizzat seçtiğini düşünüyorum.
"Tam önümüzde tıpkı açılan halı rulosu gibi zeytin bahçeleri uzayıp gidiyordu. Sağımda ve solumda yükselen tepelerin yüzleri, taze kekik çiçeği moru rengindeydi. Tepelerin ötesinde sahil ve uçsuz bucaksız mavi deniz devam ediyordu.

Yazarın dili çok eğlenceliydi. Okurken sanki bir filmin içindeydim. Bolca haritayı ve mutfağı kurcaladım okurken. Ve son olarak bir gün mutlaka gideceğim Girit’e...

This was a light easy read. A Canadian Greek from Montreal goes to Crete to get back to his Greek roots and find a place to retire..After meeting up with some characters ,they decide to open a "Curry House" restaurant seeing that he is a "foodie". This is where the story gets pretty funny with all that entails.I enjoyed it.

Girit üzerine ol(a)mayan, yemek üzerine de olmayan bir kitap...
Yazarın Girit'e dönüşünü içeren, yer yer keyifli olmakla birlikte bütünde bir olmamışlık (seyahat, yemek, arayış, hiçbiri...) duygusuyla biten bir kitap oldu...
