more ketchup than salsa boxset Reviews
Brilliant set!This is a great value set of excellent books and you save loads-this is even cheaper than buying one book separately. 'More Ketchup than Salsa: Confessions of a Tenerife Barman' was one of the first books I downloaded in kindle format-I found it in the amazon 100 top free bestsellers and grabbed it. These are great books telling of Joe and girlfriend Joy's adventures changing their lives from working on a Bolton fish market to moving to a new life in Tenerife. Very witty, a very enjoyable read, his sense of fun really comes across. 'Even More Ketchup: The Final Dollop' completes the set. I'm currently enjoying this all over again!
BrilliantThis story is so well written I believed I was actually with Joe, David, joy and faith and all the other people in the smuggler's. Laugh out loud and sad at times. A complete page turner I couldn't wait til I was on my break or on the bus so I could read more. Looking forward to more books by this incredible author.
Enjoyed every pageMarvellous insight into life abroad, laughed & felt their heartache every chapter. A great lighthearted read, couldn't put it down.
An enjoyable light readThe joys and trials of 2 young couples who set out from England to fulfill their dreams will keep you entertained.
Not very keen. It just put me off going there on holiday.This book had is good points but it wasn't very amusing and put me of holidaying in the Canary islands. I thought it would be more about the islands but all it was really about was a bad that served British food to tourists which is something that is not at all appealing to me. It was listed with grammatical errors, stupid comparisons and continuity errors. I didn't even particularly like the way main characters came over. How the niceness to the customers was all a facade and not genuine.Random examples from my notes.1) a sentence starts off talking about apple pies and finishes of calling them cakes.2) letting a 14 year old work in the bar and drink and flirt.... very responsible not!3)putting plates of food in an oven4)"it's about as attractive as a hog in high in heels" ....a stupid comparison5)stating that time share sellers get so drunk the clients have to help them back home (sounds unlikely)5) and who has heard of glass washing up bowls?6) any cranberry sauce at Christmas dinner needing pastry cases!I could go on.And the book is full of one of little stories and many are not at all amusing.And there was stories lest unfinished. One about a spying man in a car and another about a secretive girl called Charley in one apartment. These were never explained.
