Summary

When writer Paul Stewart heads to the idyllic Italian town of Montalcino to finish his already late book, it seems like the perfect escape from stressful city life. Upon landing, however, things quickly take a turn for the worse when he discovers his hired car is nowhere to be found. With no record of any reservation and no other cars available, it looks like Paul is stuck at the airport. That is, until an enterprising stranger offers him an unexpected alternative.
While there may be no cars available, there is something else on offer: a bulldozer. With little choice in the matter, Paul accepts, and so begins a series of laugh-out-loud adventures through the Italian countryside, following in the wake of Paul and his Italian bulldozer. A story of unexpected circumstance and a lesson in making the best of what you have, My Italian Bulldozer is a warm holiday listen guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Good quality easy listening.

Gentle offbeat story (within the "go to Italy, save your sanity" genre), well written, sensible length, not everything spelled out, but not too obscured. Narration fine, albeit some dodgy accent and pronunciation decisions.
I don't always want gloomy listening, and this is cheery.

Brilliant book!

Absolutely loved it. Very funny and I was laughing out loud while driving and listening. The narrator was excellent with the different voices and accents used to bring the character and the story alive.

Sublime

As always Alexander McCall Smith delivers a story filled with tenderness, humor and a touch of whimsy. His stories are good for the soul. The narration was a delight. The setting in Tuscany was spot on with mention of many things that are part of the Tuscan food and wine culture.

Lovely story, ended too soon!

I loved the entire feel of this book! It made me want to go to Tuscany, and learn Italian. I really enjoyed the humorous bits. However, I found the story a little bit truncated, and would have liked it to go on longer. Some more character development in the middle sections would have been great.
