Bought 31 Aug 2007 (will they never end, these August books???) charity shop

Another installment of Mr Hawks’ life, but this time it’s serious, not for a bet, as he buys a house in France, ships his piano out, and launches himself into the local community. It’s fairly standard expat in Europe stuff, amusing enough, but unfortunately he just doesn’t come across as very likeable (he admits himself that he’s a bit immature and needs to settle down…) and this is a drawback.

Sorry if you read this on google alerts, Mr H!

It was an amusing read and I liked the stuff about how he learnt French. Glad I read it, glad I didn’t buy it full price.

Just 150 p. of my other book to read and I’ll have a clean slate for the New Year…
