SUMMARY: A holiday can change everything…

…it did for Fred.

He went on a two-week break with three friends to the Spanish island of Ibiza in July 1976. It was so enjoyable they all vowed to come back for the following season.

In April 1977, Fred returned to Ibiza, alone, in pursuit of his dream.

The BookViral Review:  Genre – Memoirs (Kindle Store)

Everyone has memories that are special to them and with memoirs burgeoning in popularity a memoir about Ibiza is sure to gain a lot of interest. Capturing Fears fascinating real-life story and escapades, Summer of ’77: Beaches, bars and boogie nights in Ibiza certainly makes for a compelling read with an endearing sense of honesty and openness prevailing throughout. Sharing his most intimate thoughts and experiences it’s a warts and all foray into the bars and clubs of Ibiza where Fears best-laid plans take many an unexpected twist and turn. From shady employers to heat of the moment encounters his prose paint a clear and vivid view of life in Spain’s ever-popular holiday destination as he faced the many challenges of adjusting to his new life.

It was an era before the internet with the ever-present spectre of isolation looming over those in foreign climes and Fear does well to capture the nuances of those times with letters from lovers, friends and family. Clearly, they are very special to him but for his readers, particularly those who recall the seventies, they may well trigger memories of their own. Echoes of their pasts and the people they have met and lost along the way.

Well written and immersive, certainly racy at times, this is one memoir you won’t want to put down. Summer of ’77: Beaches, bars and boogie nights in Ibiza is strongly recommended.
