Travel & Geography / Adventure Exploration & Travel / Spanish Lessons: Beginning a New Life in Spain by Lambert, Derek Lambert, Derek                                         Amazon.co.uk Review: Anyone yearning for a house in the country--another country--will be reassured it can be done with Derek Lamberts engaging tale of his new life in Spain. Reassured, yet likely unconvinced that a rundown property with no running water, access or much of a roof is anybodys idea of a holiday home. Thats just the point of Lamberts book: his goal was a life, not a get-away. In the fading light, the house looked more apologetic than prepossessing. And yet it beckoned as though it contained small mysteries that might one day become familiar to us, he says as he scrambles over a stone fence to peer into the window of the house in a remote region of Andalusia. Indeed, the mysteries of plumbing, builders and a river with no bridge--and how one pays for such things--unfold slowly and then pick up speed and character as the story progresses. : : This book has more of a sense of plot than many of this genre, leading to the decision whether to stay or leave, one familiar to anyone who has decided to live abroad. Lambert does not have the writing style that Frances Mayes brings to Under the Tuscan Sun nor the consistent humour of his Andalusia neighbour Chris Stewart in Driving over Lemons. However, he offers an important sense that he and his family are willing parties to the plot he weaves. That combined with Spanish lessons on the building trades and the ability to shear sheep makes Lamberts book a pleasant guide for setting up not just a house, but a home, in rural Spain. --Kathleen Buckley  --This text refers to the Paperback edition. : : Synopsis: After a long career as a jet-setting journalist, Derek Lambert decided to settle with his family in a white casita, on Spains Mediterranean Costa Blanca. Lambert introduces us to the real Spain - a nation of passionate and often contradictory people - as he adapts to his new found home.Comments: clean and good
