    Description

    Nick and Lesley Albert yearn to leave the noise, stress, and pollution of modern Britain and move to the countryside, where the living is good, the air sweet, with space for their dogs to run free. Suddenly out of work and soon to be homeless, they set off in search of a new life in Ireland, a country they had never visited. As their adventure began to unfold, not everything went according to plan. If finding their dream house was difficult, buying it seemed almost impossible. How would they cope with banks that didn’t want customers, builders who didn’t need work, or the complex issue of where to buy some chickens?

    Part one

    This is the first part of Fresh Eggs and Dog Beds. It does have an introductory feel and in fact includes a lot of travelogue type information as a prelude to the move. Perhaps the house renovation is covered in part 2, only hinted at in this volume.

    A fun and funny short novel

    The stress of your work life and the fun and stressful life of trying to set yourself up to retire. Nick and Lesley are living the dream most of us have. They moved to Ireland, bought a country property and made it a home for themselves and their dogs. This book is their hilarious journey and I can't wait to get to book 2!

    loved this look into living the quiet Irish country dream. I am envious of the bravery it takes to leave modern living behind. look forward to the next in the series.

    interesting

    This set of misadventures they called life would have been enough to give a lesser person a stroke. It seemed he had more stress in the life choices he made to decrease his stress, imo. Yeah for him and his spouse, because this would have put me six feet under. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

    Funny and entertaining

    This is a delightful and humorous story of an English couple (Nick & Lesley) who decide to move to Ireland because of his doctor's advise. The author does a wonderful job of detailing their excursion! From their house hunting to finally moving in.
    I found myself literally laughing out loud more than once over some of the descriptions of certain events. I loved this book and would gladly reread it in the future. I look forward to the rest of the series!

    Relaxing and Entertaining

    A relaxing , entertaining and amusing tale. Can't wait to hear part 2. I had listened to a dogs tail and thought this was a continuation but it is actually a more indepth version. I'm glad I bought it too.

    Delightful!

    Fresh Eggs and Dog Beds is a delightful story looking at the vicissitudes of life through the lens of an English couple, Lesley and Nick, as they decide to leave behind city life and move to rural Ireland.

    As the story opens, Nick’s doctor is giving him the grave news that if he doesn’t change his life and reduce his stress level he’ll be dead soon. Nick gives notice at his stressful job and he and his wife Lesley start looking for a rural farmhouse in Ireland that they can fix up and make their own. After looking at several possible houses, none of which seem right to them, they finally find the one they want - an isolated farmhouse, musty, dusty, and full of woodworm, that they fall in love with. It takes some doing to get everything in place to actually buy the property and the sale is uncertain until almost the last minute. Once they own the property, they realize they’re in a little deeper than expected since there’s more that needs to be done to the house than they had envisioned, and there are no workmen available that they can hire to do the work.

    Nick’s writing style is chatty and engaging. In listening to this audiobook I was able to visualize every scene, often with a grin on my face, as Nick describes the ups and downs of their hunt for, and eventual possession of, their desired house.

    The narrator was wonderful as well. Some narrators will take me out of the story because of odd pauses, strange pronunciations, or an unpleasant voice quality. Andy Stevenson’s narration does none of that, but instead makes an already enjoyable story even better. His pacing is just right, his voice his pleasant to listen to, and as an American, I love his accent.

    I loved this story so much that as soon as I found out there was a sequel I jumped on the chance to get it, too. I’ve started listening to Still Living the Dream in Rural Ireland: Fresh Eggs and Dog Beds, Book 2, and I’m enjoying it just as much. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    Fresh ideas and just do it

    I really enjoyed the voice of Andy Stevenson and the story is nearly worth 5 stars. There was only too much dog stuff which is a little bit boring. On the other hand I love Nick’s humour and the story is really interesting. I am still in the multinational company and seems that our next step is a DIY experience in rural Ireland. Hope to see you there.
