    One thought on “How Blue Is My Valley: The Real Provence”

    1. How Blue is my Valley should have a sub title And how Green and Soggy was the one I left behind This book, Jean Gill s honest, witty and charming account of how she, her man and a menagerie of pets left their rainy Welsh Valley and moved to the sunshine and lavender scented countryside in Provence is delightful I couldn t stop smiling as she compared the well disciplined flocks of French goats with the thuggish little bovids she encountered back in Wales Jean picks up on every nuance of her new [...]

    2. Too jumbledThe title states, the real Provence , yet why did everything discuss Wales The part about Provence, the resistance, etc was very interesting Wales, not so much Why doesn t the author talk about the real Wales in one book and the real Provence in another I skimmed the last 40% of the book and only read the parts about Provence.

    3. Unreadable It reads like she collected a bunch of thoughts from scraps of paper and decided it was a book.

    4. I really enjoyed this book while i read it, its very interesting and funny, it makes me laugh many times , very entertaining Thanks to the author Jean Gill that has sent this book to me i am so happy, she is very nice and kind Well i am so lucky that i won this book from giveaway DThis book tells about what like the experience ltransition from one country to another country, which must adapting the culture and the language that very different one.king an old house become a new one The author is [...]

    5. This is one of those books that transcends genre it s as much a travel book as a personal memoir as is the best travel writing, I suppose thinking here of Bruce Chatwin Gill sets out to entertain her account of dealing with day to day household affairs in a new location and in a different language is very amusing But there are also some poignant details and some beautiful descriptions of her valley in Provence Anyone who has moved to a very different location to where one grew up or, indeed, a n [...]

    6. This was a lovely account of one person s experience of living in Wales and Provence where life can take on unexpected challenges and pleasures Written in a very witty sort of stream of consciousness it is a memoir that I found totally absorbing and at times very funny It s a book that gives the reader a real and vivid insight into the area and what it s like to upsticks and move to another country and culture Highly recommended.

    7. It took me a bit to get into this one for some reason two or three chapters , but once I got used to the author s style, I thoroughly enjoyed her honesty, charm and witty humor.

    8. I really couldn t finish this so called travel book that is a stream of conscience than a narrative The writer spent time reminiscing about her life in Wales than her new one in France.
