‘A Kilo of String’ – Some reviews so far

A Kilo of String

It has got to be the most hilarious book I have read to date!

Pearls of unadulterated enjoyment.

Brilliant!

I can’t put the book down.

The funniest book ever written about life in Greece!

Your books are a scream. Loved them.

The writing is excellent and really brings to life the lovely eccentricities of the Greek people.

If you want to read something that will make you cry from laughing I highly recommend this book!!!

Rob’s anecdotes are hilarious and ring so true.

Insightful commentary on the troubles Greece is suffering as a result of the austerity measures. All in all a really good read.

Simply hilarious.

An excellent insight to the ways and workings of Greece and the Greeks.

I hope Rob continues to write such fantastic books as this.

I chuckled all through it.

A fine snapshot of life in Greece.

All in all a cracking, good fun read.

Loved the book and love Rob’s sense of humour.

Made me almost choke on my coffee as I laughed out loud.

Captures Greeks beautifully.

Hilarious and informative.

Has me howling with laughter.

Your portrayal of both characters and incidents which both you and Penny came across were at times achingly funny.

Excellent book, very funny and true to Greek life.

There is a certain knack to storytelling and this latest novel is a prime example of how to convey reality to an audience with humour.

A great read!! I really enjoyed his spot-on insight into the Greek psyche.

Ooh er, I’ve been interviewed by Expat.com Magazine about life in Greece to coincide with the publication of my new book, A Kilo of String.

“Rob Johnson is a self-described ‘reluctant olive farmer’ and an author in Greece. Originally from England, Rob has just published his new book, ‘A Kilo of String’, which gives fellow expats and anyone thinking of moving to Greece some insight into the oddities and unique aspects of living there. Rob tells Expat.com a bit about how he’s finding day to day life in Greece, olives and all.”
