A Gecko in the Machine.Postcards from the Bahamas covers a period from the emigration by the author and his wife with Habu, their German Shepherd dog to their newly built home on the island of Exuma in the Bahamas: it is an affectionate portrait of the subsequent events, places and characters that they have encountered along the way written from a personal perspective. For anyone who has visited the island, this book refreshes memories of the place, the people, the activities, the incredible colour and warmth that pervades everything and above all, highlights the total contrast from home. For the armchair voyager, it will make a highly readable and amusing travel book to curl up with after lunch on a cold, wet day in cooler climes. For anyone seeking to acquire a second home in the sun or even emigrate, it provides a genial picture of what to expect, the good and the frustrating; but one is constantly reminded that the ultimate reward can include an idyllic turquoise sea, a magical sunset, the sighting of a rare sea creature and the peace.
