    This was a great little book that taught me, not only about small town France culture, but also to reflect on my current life and consider decisions about where I live and what I do mindfully As we baby boomers age, it seems we become interested in the components of health including community connectedness, beautiful art, physical activity and the value of reflection This book illustrates all of these factors, masterfully mingling them in with Shore s creative wit.

    Charming, lighthearted, self mocking, and chuckle inducings A real page turner on a subject I previously knew nothing about If you were ever that kid who wanted to fit in and be invited to play with the the big boys, you ll love this book A must read by anyone wanting to spend time in another culture, visit Provence, laugh at contrasts between French and Canadian culture, or simply yearning for a slower pace of life.

    Incredibly boringTrue, I am not a male overtly interested in games involving balls and sticks I was hoping for a balanced view of Provence and life in a small village, food, wine and culture Mais non, seulement petanque.

    I enjoyed Uncorked immensely the fish out of water story the sweet and gentle humour and all of the characters, especially Hubert and his la puff The story was very uplifting, and I could easily relate to finding oneself in a strange land and not knowing the customs, or the language.

    We included this in our Bookworm s Guide to Books that Inspire Travel recommendations The book reads slow initially, until you figure out you need to let it breathe This is an immersion, a story of belonging, culture and community Finding your place amidst these things doesn t happen immediately Just as I was getting a joyful satisfaction in Paul Shore s acclimation, he gets called home to Canada, which engendered a great sense of loss I d love to see him treat reverse culture shock, if he experienced it upon returning home, in a similar manner.

    An amusing readThis memoir is entertaining, amusing and an enjoyable read Paul, a Canadian spends a year in France with his job He not only conquers the game of petanque, but is slowly accepted by the locals Wonderfully written I loved it.

    Great synopsis of the south of France.Paul Shore does a lovely job of describing a small town in the south of France and all the quirkiness that come with it.

    This is a must read book for any techie who is being asked to parachute into a new country or to Silicon Valley I only wish the book was available the first time I had to work in the UK.
