    One thought on “Mañana Mañana: One Mallorcan Summer”

    1. I didn't laugh quite as much as Peter Kerr's Mallorcan winter book but it is still a very enjoyable read, made me smile and brought back happy memories of my own Mallorcan holidays. Left me wondering what happened next.

    2. A very funny, well-written history! It is not the best literature ever, but if you read just looking for fun, you find it is very amusing, even cute! I just wanted to say it has a huge mistake: it seemed to me that he considered "mallorquín" as a dead Spanish dialect only spoken by the old people in Mallorca, when it is actually a dialect of catalan (a different language with more than 6 millions of speakers) widely used in all the Balearic Islands.

    3. Leaving the chill of Scotland behind, Peter Kerr and his family move to an orange grove in Mallorca. There are the local rustics with their devious ways, the annoying tourists, the amusing linguistic accidents of living in a foreign language. If you enjoyed A Year in Provence, by Peter Mayle, you'll chew through this one, rapidamente.

    4. I don't normally actually like auto-biographies, or biographies, either, but this one was cute and funny. It's a collection of stories about a Scottish family that relocates to Spain to raise fruit. Comedy ensues.

    5. Now I'd like to read the rest of the series of the Kerr family's time in Mallorca, but I can't any of the books. I'd also, of course, like to go to Mallorca, but I can't find any money

    6. Not as good as Chris Stewart. Author irritated me by trying to be outside the action (ie always seemed to be above everything) when it was supposed to be about integrated.

    7. Might have to try this in "readable" format. The audio format was too hard for me to follow, as the narrator had an accent.
