Beautiful listening, could listen again easily.
If you could sum up Je t'aime à La Folie in three words, what would they be?
Colourful, deep and exciting.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Je t'aime à La Folie?
For me, when the author approached the organist, in the small French village and asked to be able to play the organ at services. The church was Catholic and Michael being Anglican, new to France, showed his braveness for putting his hand up here, was so well written. Michael was willing to step-up in so many ways in rural France, with language and cultural differences between his previous English/urban life and this new country life. I can see so many of the characters he wrote of, so clearly in my minds eye.
Have you listened to any of Michael Wright’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No I have not, can't wait to listen to more.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
His care and love of his tiny sheep!
Any additional comments?
I could not recommend a book more than this one. Thanks.

An excellent and honest account
I really enjoyed this. He really draws you into his world and makes you feel like you're out there with him on his isolated hill. The downside of that is that you can get quite frustrated by his little foibles - more than once I found myself wanting to shout "get a grip of yourself, it's only a bloody chicken" at my ipod, but I suppose that's part and parcel of an honest account of life. Another slightly annoying tendency is the way he often leaves a story hanging and returns to it only in passing. Even if it's only an insignificant event, you want to know how it concludes. But overall a very good and engaging listen
