Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca? is the frank and charming story of a brave couple who risk everything to move to Spain to breed alpacas. Their intention is to make a living, but first they must negotiate their way through the Spanish property market, local characters, rogue builders and the worst weather Andalucía has seen for 100 years.
Alan and Lorna experience the joy, but also the heartbreak of alpaca breeding, picking up an assortment of stray animals on the way.

Listened to it in one long wine induced sitting
So far for me it was one of the best. Very interesting and entertaining. Thought the narration was really good.
Nothing in audio so far like it. Just some of the other travel memoirs.
No this is the first one.
Losing his baby alpacas. I really felt for him. How on earth do you go on?
My husband is blind and listens to alot of audio books. He really enjoyed this one and we both sat and listened to it together in one sitting drinking some nice wine. That is how much we enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next one to come out on audio.
A genuinely good listen
I would most certainly listen to "Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca?" again, because it's the sort of audio-book that reels you in and then keeps you there. It kept me entertained right throughout an interminable journey through France.
When Alan gets covered in alpaca spit, I nearly wet myself laughing!
Without a doubt Alan himself, I felt that by the end of the book, that I already knew Alan and Lorna.
It made me laugh on multiple occasions,
A brilliant recondition of Alan Parks's already excellent memoir. Can't wait to listen to the other 2 books.
