I turned the first page with lighter heart.
I loved it. I devoured every story. They were compelling, well-written and entertaining. What's more, they did resonate with me simply because I knew the Netherlands, its bikes, its quirks, its food, language and healthcare system.
I recommend this book to anyone who might be thinking of doing an expat anthology. I'm a grumpy and cynical old goat, jaded too, from reviewing too many mediocre books, but this one, I promise you, is a goodie.
