Je t aime a La Folie is an absolutely adorable recounting of one man s quest to find true love while raising goats in the middle of nowhere countryside of darkest France I have to say that my LEAST favorite thing about this book was the author s constant reference to where he lived as darkest France I got over the darkest fairly quickly and found myself pretending it wasn t there.And that s the worst thing I have to say about this book And let s face it, if the worst thing I can say about a Je t aime a La Folie is an absolutely adorable recounting of one man s quest to find true love while raising goats in the middle of nowhere countryside of darkest France I have to say that my LEAST favorite thing about this book was the author s constant reference to where he lived as darkest France I got over the darkest fairly quickly and found myself pretending it wasn t there.And that s the worst thing I have to say about this book And let s face it, if the worst thing I can say about a book is that the author overuses the term darkest France, it must be a pretty good book.And this absolutely was.While it was regularly repeated that no woman could survive at Michael s home, which he referred to as La Folie because all homes in Southern France must, of course, have names , I find myself immediately falling for the charm of his quaint life amongst his chickens and goats With his graceful, somewhat humorous although I have to admit there was some humor I just didn t get times when laughing happened and I truly did NOT understand why writing style, Michael drew me right into his world, and I was absolutelythan happy to be there By the end of the book, I felt like Gaston the goat, Martha the hen, and Cat who actually IS a cat were my own, and I was sad when I was forced back to reality to discover that, no, they were Michael s animals I love it when an author has me on his side, and with such an honest recounting of Wright s year or two looking for love in France, he DEFINITELY had me on his side Everything he thought or felt, he laid it all out there for us to see, and that made this book fabulous While I m still not entirely sure what a spitfire is, they were important to Wright and thus became important to me While his friends did not seem like people I would normally enjoy, through his eyes they became boisterous, fabulous people Wright is such a compassionate, forgiving person that I couldn t help but root for him all the way through.My biggest disappointment is that I read this book before reading his first recounting of life in France, C est La Folie You can bet, though, that I ll be trying to get my hands on that first chance I get Not really that impressed I read C est la Folie three years ago, before moving to the same region of France that Michael Wright lives I thought it was witty and insightful I also follow his newspaper column, so was keen to read this sequel There s too much repetition there s less wit the local characters, who s antics provided so much of the enjoyment of the first book, are less well drawn Even his romance, which forms the basis of the book, seems almost unbelievable It s almost like h Not really that impressed I read C est la Folie three years ago, before moving to the same region of France that Michael Wright lives I thought it was witty and insightful I also follow his newspaper column, so was keen to read this sequel There s too much repetition there s less wit the local characters, who s antics provided so much of the enjoyment of the first book, are less well drawn Even his romance, which forms the basis of the book, seems almost unbelievable It s almost like he wanted to fill a book s worth of pages, without revealing too much detail, or compromising his privacy I would ve preferred somewarts and all This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This has been quite a slow autobiography At first I thought it was going to be really good but then the pace dropped off.I think what the book needed was the people that were featured to have hearddefinition to them You truly didn t get to know who they were unlike some previous Autobiographies of life in France.
