Reviews of Enjoying Mallorca


Harpers & Queen
"Don't forget to pack ... Enjoying Mallorca is Pamela Legge's highly enjoyable personal account of life on Majorca and her friendship with Robert Graves."

Harry Ritchie, The Mail on Sunday
She recounts her life on the island ... part memoir and part guide book, and displays a great enthusiasm for detail. ... If you want a guide to Mallorca's flora, fauna and traditional fiestas, and an account of expat life, then this may well be just your kind of book."

Debbie Thrower, BBC Radio 2
"A very personal account of Mallorca off the beaten track which also serves as a guide for tourists because it is packed with useful information about the island's history, customs and traditional food and wine."

Petroc Trelawney,  London News Radio
"If you would like to discover more about this incredible place, Pamela Legge's new book Enjoying Mallorca should be right up your street. ...There is a lovely anecdote about a fiesta involving a devil who became distinctly over-friendly with a young girl whose mother objected. ... It is a delightful book."

Judith Falcon, Radio Mercury Extra 
"What makes this book so authentic and useful is that the incidents described therein You learn a lot more by reading a story than by reading a guide book or history book. Pamela Legge has put together a wonderful book. ... Enjoying Majorca is both an autobiography and a tourist guide combined; it is very entertaining to read."

The Expatriate
"What makes this book so authentic and useful is that the incidents described therein are obviously observed from life. They take the form of an amusing narrative. ... Enjoying Mallorca provides a wealth of information for the tourist and gives a valuable insight into the life of the expatriate community.  It is a most enjoyable read and The Expatriate recommends it."

Ray Fleming, Majorca Daily Bulletin 
"Pamela Legge's book contains a great wealth of perceptive and sympathetic observation of daily life here which is interwoven with much historical and anecdotal information. ... I hope I have said enough to convey something of the special quality of this delightful book. While it is in one sense the diary of a personal odyssey of discovery, it is also a remarkably useful running compendium of information about living in Mallorca, getting things done here and enjoying all that the island has to offer. The book is packed with information and everything is bang up to date." 

Surrey County Magazine
"The ideal book for anyone contemplating anything from a complete upheaval, to buying a holiday villa or just going on holiday.  The detailed information about the island is given in friendly form and is exceptionally readable.."

Amazon customer review (2002)
"This is not the sort of travel book you will enjoy if you are a fan of, for example, Peter Mayle, but I recommend it to anyone who loves this Island. In passages it is evocative of This Granite Isle, by Dorothy Carrington which is without doubt the definitive book about Corsica.... The author's love of the Island and the people who live on it is apparent from beginning to end. It is very hard to find another book which will give you so much detail about the three Fs, flora fauna and fiestas so pick up a copy and start planning your next visit !
