Several of the later chapters are a bit thin, and focus on minutiae that may not be of great interest to every reader. Still they add small pieces to the puzzle of a country that certainly has its quirks. For those who have an affection for Greece and Greeks, the book will be entertaining. The greater mystery of what the Johnsons are doing with 420 olive trees and less than an unswerving calling to harvest them may have to wait for a sequel. They certainly have staked a claim in a non-touristy area of Greece that merits reflection. I wish we were told more about their neighbors. But wanting to know more suggests there is more to be written by an entertaining author.
Having been an avid listener to his podcast series,on the same subject, the printed experience can only be described as meeting old friends and enjoying a convivial night recounting old tales and learning of new more recent stories. There is a certain knack to storytelling and this book does not fail to keep its interest, indeed by far the opposite. Well done on yet another well written work and look forward to your next.
