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.

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.

This book popped up as a suggestion on my Kindle, perhaps in response to something else I had read--perhaps "Sugar," by Deirdre Riordan Hall, another self-publish, which was rather remarkably compelling--the first "alternative" publication I'd ever chosen on Kindle. The first chapter of "Ketchup" was witty enough to catch my attention; as the book continued, it became something of a diary, not even a travelogue, or if so, a poorly written one. Yet the events of the narrative held promise; I could see a good story here--if, for goodness sake, someone would just, please, just edit the copy so it was actually readable. As an editor, I was almost tempted to contact the author to ask him to let me work with the material, let me help you tell the story you want to tell, so it can become a page-turner. Then it just wore me down. The author's mockery of his human subjects could be amusing if he brought them to life, but he's so didactic--there's just not life. He finally lost me with a description of bouncing about in a boat "like Muslims at prayer"--the blatantly racist analogy made me want to slap him. His bio says he's a travel writer; apparently, he's a rather colonialist tourist. This had the potential to be a gem of a beach read, but the author can't really compose in a fluid manner, and can't get beyond his own head to see the interesting human beings around him; they're just some sort of objects he describes.

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.

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!
