    An irresistable world

    Whilst not a terribly realistic presentation of the Yemen, this is a well-told, unpredictable and humorous, story with some delightful characters with whom you can laugh, sympathize and grimace at their nativity.

    Wish it was longer!

    A little slow starting and at times I wished there wasn't so much italics, but then the story took over and I read at the exclusion of all else until it was done.

    Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

    Paul Torday the author reveals little of himself except as an intelligent writer, who skilfully weaves an improbable story in letters, emails and interview notes. He invites us to take a second look at characters we have already met, at work and in front page news by lighting a candle beneath and slightly warming them. Grey , serious people who become united by belief. Belief in an ambitious project, introducing salmon into the wadi of the Yemen. With the fabulous wealth of a Yemeni sheik the project comes to fruition with the reader hoping against hope that success will be complete. Probability tells us that the greater the reach of ambition, the closer we come to fate. There is a pinnacle of suspense and elation, then realisation that the human cost is too high even for the fabulously wealthy.

    Better than the movie

    Movie was charming and well cast especially Kristin Scott Thomas as the director of communication who was a male character in the book. Book 's plot was more plausible. It is written as a series of emails or diary entries. Definitely a fun read.
