Reasons Not to Move to the Country

Just finished this hilarious little read: Reasons Not to Move to the Country: One woman's calamitous attempt to live the rural dream, by Judy Rumbold.
Rumbold uses humor to contrast her previous life in London with her new life in the English countryside. Chapters are very short and topic-related: using the Aga, rural shopping, chintz, noise, smells, driving.
Rumbold's writing would be hard to take in large chunks since she uses such extreme and plentiful adjectives. However, I found it entertaining to read in bits and pieces.
