It's actually quite an entertaining read, but the story doesn't end at the end of the book. Instead they want to buy another book to see how the story actually turned out. Not cool.

I would defy anyone who has ever lived in the UK, or anywhere else that is often cold, wet and rainy, not to say that they have had a secret yearning to change their life by heading for a life abroad. Every years, millions of us make the cattle class journey to European resorts and we watch the Brit's who have made it, those who live permanently in our holiday destinations, with envy, thinking `what if`. But, is the grass always greener in the sun? Of course not, it's usually non-existent, the landscape can be barren and you definitely don't get the manicured countryside that I love about Britain.

In More Ketchup than Salsa, Joe had me laughing so hard that I spilled a cup of tea all over the bed. His tale of travelling from Bolton Fish Market to Tenerife Costa del Bognor opens up the can of worms that most of us never even consider when we are sitting sipping coffee on a terrace and dreaming. His daily battles with cockroaches, the local mafia, animals and the never ending variety of people that stepped through his door, was the wake up call I needed to think again about what it was I might just do if I ever decided to take the plunge and live abroad. This is the perfect book to take on holiday with you especially if you are already planning to make that move.

First off, I would say this book is NOT about Tenerife per se. If you're looking for a travel guide, this is not it! However, I enjoyed it very much. It's more of a "fish out of water" tale that will entertain anyone who has experience with tourism.

Easy, breezy, interesting and, at times, laugh-aloud funny, but WTH are the copy editors?! Really poorly edited to the point of distracting.

A nice light read...the kind you might enjoy lying on a beach somewhere like...well like Tenerife.  Do not expect more than casual company from these characters, but I did laugh out loud at least 2 times, and that is worth the time spent.

Not sure if anyone else noticed but throughout the book some of the names of the characters would change from one paragraph to another (just finished reading where the mother's have come down to help and he writes that one of the Johns sits down next to "Norma" whereas before and after their names are Carole And Faye) not done reading yet, and am enjoying the book, but the apparently bad editing (or perhaps none) makes it difficult to keep tract on occasion.

Fortunately I borrowed this Kindle book free through lendle.me,because I couldn't make it past 20% since I refuse to read such filthy language.

I HATE,HATE,HATE when reviewers don't mention this,ARRGH!

I thought this book would be fun and funny. Dropping everything to open a bar in paradise. It was not that great, boring in parts. The characters complain that they work too much-who needs to hear that? I could have put it down and not continued reading. It was rambling, not terribly interesting. Not to be believed in parts, just dumb in others. I would not recommend it, and am surprised at the people who do! They must be friends of the rambling, pointless author.
