I just finished 'A good year' by Peter Mayle. At first I read his 'A year in Provence', and I liked it very much. My second favorite by him is 'French lessons: adventures with knife, fork and corkscrew' but I enjoyed his other Provence-stories also, incl. 'Dog's life'. Is there someone else who likes his books?

What's his style? I love to find new authors. I'll have to look his works up! The titles alone sound quirky enough to grab my attention!

Have you read Toscana-books of Frances Mayes? Peter Mayle's books are something similar but a bit better written, in my opinion - more witty etc.

Good luck with your exams. Hopefully I never have to do an exam anymore. By the way, to examine somebody is as bad as to take it, or even worse!

I read every day, I have not read anything of this author but I am going to look up his books. I'm always looking for something new to read. I love many different types of books.

Give him a try, he really is worth it! "Year in Provence" should be the first one of his Provence-serie, and as usual, the first book is the best;-)
