About this deal

Despite the extraordinary success of his books, Chris, his wife Ana, and their daughter Chloë, continue to live on their farm, with their numerous dogs, cats, chickens, sheep and misanthropic parrot. Following his final sheep-shearing expedition in Sweden, Stewart describes the writing of and then response to Driving Over Lemons, interspersed with more amusing tales from Andalucia and semi-autobiographical details of Stewart's earlier life. Grāmatas ir sarakstīta no vairākiem epizodiskiem ierakstiem, kas sarindoti bez hronoloģiskas secības.

I raced through it, revelling in the Spanish characters and it was good to get a bit more background as to how Christobal ended up in Spain.

Chris is clearly clever, caring and compassionate about his adopted country and life style but he also come over as a little smug. Chris Stewart's "Driving Over Lemons" told the story of his move to a remote mountain farm in Las Alpujarras, an oddball region of Spain, south of Granada. It is a very human story of struggling against the odds, accepting what is, and a deeply passionate love of the Andalucian peasant farmers' way of life, barely changed over the last century.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. And now I can't quit thinking about that poor parrot, The horse stepped on his FOOT and would not move it. The style is always light, even when things go wrong, and it makes for easy reading, and there are some very funny moments. entonces gran parte de las anécdotas se ven forzadas y un poco temerosas, como preocupado de querer seguir cayendo bien.Having succeeded against all odds (and that is a tremendous achievement) the drama is now lost making the "story" a little flat. A Parrot in the Pepper Tree also looks back on Chris Stewart's former life -- the hard times shearing in midwinter Sweden (and driving across the frozen sea to teach island farms; his first taste of Spain, learning the flamenco guitar as a 20-year-old; and his illustrious music career, drumming for his school band Genesis (sacked at 17, he never quite became Phil Collins), and then for Sir Robert Fossett's circus. Following in the footsteps of his first book, here we have another delightful sojourn at El Valero, in the Las Alpujarras in Spain - at the eco friendly home of Chris, Ana and their five year old daughter Chloë. You know, some people just have a knack for writing; they can make even the most boring things seem interesting — partly because they find it interesting and probably don’t give a damn if you think it’s boring/silly/lame. This sequel follows the lives of Chris, Ana and their daughter, Chloe, as they get to grips with a misanthropic parrot who joins their home, Spanish school life, neighbours in love, their amazement at Chris appearing on the bestseller lists .
