Jack takes a tongue in cheek, don't take anything too seriously look at the Expat community he encountered in Turkey over a period of about 20 months. This is a really entertaining, fun read written with Jack's inimitable caustic wit in bite sized chunks. His observations and descriptions of the characters give them life on the page. Quote "Nancy is the undisputed chief concubine, his Nell Gwyn to her improbable Charles the Second." Because this book is effectively a diary I find it easy to pick up and put down at any point. Jack doesn't tax the brain; he just entertains. A laugh a minute.MASK
