    One thought on “Getting to Manana”

    1. Under the Tuscan Sun set in Andalucia, Spain -- and much funnier. Loved this writer - she could be a bit over the top at times but I also found myself laughing out loud quite often. You'll never feel the same way about home improvement projects again!!

    2. Despite being divided into sections by year, this book suffered from a very confused timeline. The author jumped all over the place forward and back years in the narrative without explanation. The author also spent the entire book whining about things that were or had gone terribly wrong. An annoying and depressing book instead of the light travel book I was hoping for.

    3. Beautifully written with great descriptive passages about her environment and lifestyle. Miranda was an easily excited and unpredictable woman who moves from England to Spain to start a new life with a new love in a derelict house. Often very tongue in cheek, laughing at herself and the often terrible situations they were in.
