Publisher's Summary

Would you leave your job, sell your house, abandon your family and friends, and move to France to live on a boat? With no income, and no idea what the next day would bring?
Probably not. But that's what Mike and Liz did, choosing to cast off from corporate life to live on and travel the waterways of France. They're boarded by armed police, nearly lose their boat, and pull a near-drowned body from the water. With a blade against his neck, Mike's fate rests on a soccer game, and he and Liz accuse a Frenchman of not knowing how to soil a bat.
This is their adventure, a book for anyone who's ever thought they might like to just get away from it all, throw caution to the wind, and see what tomorrow feels like. It will take you to the limits, bring you down to earth, but most of all it will make you laugh out loud.

I suppose they enjoyed it

There's not much you can say about this book. It's quirky and quite amusing but for me the style is too much along the lines of what I'd call journo speak. It reads like a magazine feature or newspaper column or even one of those television documentaries such as 'Wish you were here'. Not really for me at all. too much name dropping and you feel that at any moment it's going to descend in to interview mode. 'Tell me, how did you enjoy your experience in france'?
