    1. No doubt I am not part of the target demographic for this book. It used to belong to my mum, and it somehow found it's way onto my bookshelf, so I thought, why not? This was written by a television presenter which pretty much guaranteed a solid readership. If not written by someone with a public profile, I'm not sure it would have made it. However, that is a seperate issue.Much of The Last Tango in Toulouse had nothing to do with the author's last tango in Toulouse which was the end of the affai [...]


    2. Though I'm sure this book (sequel to Au revoir) would interest many who actually know the author as an Australian TV persona, I didn't really find all the talk about gardens, her travels and uncountable lunches, dinners and wine drinking with her large family and the friends she made in France, interesting. What I did find interesting was the affair this 50+ lady in mid crisis had, her thoughts and feelings that led her to have an affair, the consequences her actions had and the reaction of her [...]



    3. The story of Mary Moody's journey in Australia, France, England, Kathmandu, Canada, etc. Lots of little anecdotes that made each of the trips memorable.

Enjoyable to read, cooking, plants and animals feature prominently in the book, as does her wonferful fam [...]


    4. Curious enough about "what next" after Mary Moody's first novel Au Revoir: Running Away from Home at Fifty in this series to embark on the next, I was rewarded adequately as the author covers a lot of ground geographically and subjectively and there is as much to relate to as it is varied. If you want to step outside your own imperfect life for a while and into the story of someone else's albeit more exotic than my own, there's a pleasant experience in reading Last Tango in Toulouse.



    5. The final in the trilogy I think! Great finding yourself theme as Mary runs away from Australia to find herself in France.



    6. really much more dull than i expected. not particularly recommended e cept for bits about life in village france.
