Gallic Delight ,
March 11, 2006. Reviewer: Martin Latter from West Sussex, UK
Simon Day's pursuit of many things Gallic,
especially the 2CV, is clearly out of the ordinary. He pursued his motoring
dreams from a young age, and pursued them with a passion. He retells his
journey in this book - the lessons learned on the way and spiritual insights
gained - with honesty and wit.
I'm not interested in cars these days - and
especially not 'Tin Snails' - yet Simon's amusing anecdotes, combined with a
wonderful flair for description, have the potential to captivate even non-car
lovers. For Citroen lovers, this book will be sublime gold.
A Cracking Book
, March 2, 2006. Reviewer: katie11533 from Sussex,
A gem of a book combining not only great passion
for 2CV's but an enlightening insight into faith and belief.
I loved it,I really did, I found it fascinating
and I can't even change a tyre! Simon Day has written this wonderful book with
flair and an enchanting enthusiasm for 2CV's.
The spiritual aspect is remarkable, always
interesting, very well researched and at times very moving indeed. It proves to
perfection how important Faith is in our personal lives.
I loved Simon's honesty, expertise and sense of
humour - the book had me laughing out loud, I will never be able to eat chips
without wanting to dip them into somebody's cooreh sauce!!

Simon Day writes wittily and pungently, weaving
stories of cars with his spiritual journey- not an easy task, but one he
accomplishes with elegance and style. The photos are evocative, capturing
long-lost summers and the sheer enthusiasm for his subject shines through.
I'd recommend it. Would make an excellent
