Summary

Max Skinner is a man at the heart of London's financial universe until his employers embark on a little asset-stripping of their own. Himself. Amid the grey London drizzle, there is one potential ray of sunshine: Max's Uncle Harry has left him his estate in his will, an eighteenth-century chateau and vineyard an hour's drive from Avignon. Out of a job, and encouraged by his friend Charlie about the money in modern wine, he heads for France. What Max discovers is a beautiful house, wonderful weather, and a bustling village. The downside is the quality of the wine in his vineyard; but when Max suggests calling in an expert, Roussel, a former employee of his uncle's, is resistant. Help is at hand, however, when a beautiful blonde Californian arrives unexpectedly at the chateau.
A Good Year won a Gold Spoken Word Award in 2004 in the Unabridged Contemporary Fiction category.

A Good Year. By Peter Mayle.

Charming, witty, unpredictable and thoroughly entertaining. Tim Piggot-Smith does an excellent job as narrator. One of those all too rare books you don't want to end.

A Good Year

I really enjoyed this book. It is a feel-good story about sunshine, friends and wine in the South of France.

Escapism for a Francophile

What made the experience of listening to A Good Year the most enjoyable?

A pleasurable book that was beautifully narrated. Story was better than the movie. Easy to listen to on a long flight.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Perfect book for francophiles! The narrator was great, and listening to this in my car made me wish I was driving in the south of France.
