    First let me say that despite what the cover of Two Caravans says this book is not hilarious nor is it funny In fact it is mostly sad and depressing I can see that Two Caravans tries to be funny but it fails for four major reasonsOne The characters are rather flat and clichedTwo The subject matter isn't funnyThree It is trying way too hard the dog's dialogue I didn't even read itFour Any book that explains in detail the

    I liked this I think it is a stronger story and interestingly written structured than the History of Tractors book read in Spain 2006 but that's a complete aside Sure this is whimisical with migrant workers picking strawb

    Magnificent Utterly charming relentlessly thought provoking delightfully fashioned The story of a rag tag company of immigrant strawberry pickers is told via a kaleidescope of tale tellers Each character including a mythically perfect dog named Dog has a distinctive voice and a strong world view Each character is flawed but each takes a turn narrating and showing the reader the world as he or she sees it It is a world fu

Assion social outrage and gift for hilarity that she showed in A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian Marina Lewycka chronicles their bumpy road trip with a tender affection for her downtrodden characters and their search for a taste of the good life This book ticked a lot of boxes for me I loved itIt s not the easiest read owing to the mix of third person and first person points of view one of the first person POVs is that of a dog first canine perhapsBut it s certainly worth sticking to it because it allows the reader to get inside a number of heads and find out what makes them tick and see the world through their eyes through the filter of their knowledgeThis books plumbs the depths and goes to some suallid places that can make us feel ashamed to be part of the human raceBut it also has some splendid comic momentsTo my mind that s what makes a great writer the ability to go from light to dark again and back to light again There s no black no white just lots of shades of interesting greyI also like that this book was written to no formula that I know It s original A breath of fresh air

Is also a biting satire of economic exploitation When a ragtag international crew of migrant workers is forced to flee the strawberry fields they have been working in they set off across England looking for employment Displaying the same sense of comp This story explores the experiences of a random group of Eastern European immigrant workers in the UK It very cleverly captures the changes that have occurred in the UK over the last 5 years since Europe started expanding into the East I also like the way the book is written in the voice of all of the characters involved except for the dog which is just plain stupid I was thoroughly confused by all of the comments that covered the book from the press about how it was hilarious the funniest book etc I guess this was their marketing ploy but it isn t hilarious in fact the situations the characters find themselves in would only be funny if it wasn t so true The fact that the dedication at the front of the book is to the Morecambe bay cockle pickers says it all The ending becomes absolutely ridiculous but given the content of most of the book I was willing to let it go Not a masterpiece by any means but definitely worth reading from a social standpoint
