Awesome Adventures of an Immigrant (Paperback)
The author is a new-comer to New Zealand. In the footsteps of Abel Tasman the author might have thought New Zealand to be a Dutch Colony! Life in the far North soon revealed characteristics that proved myopic aspirations were hard at work. But the author has a contagious sense of humour. And without the fine tuned skills in English expression the inimitable style of his book adds colour and fascination to the events he describes. I think the reader will be able to identify with some of the humorous situations and has probably met some of the officious personalities who take centre stage in a parochial community.

This book is a sequel to the author's first book ‘Awesome Adventures of an Immigrant’ where he went into the footsteps of Abel Tasman to discover New Zealand.
Upon returning to his home country he felt like a new-comer. In the same pointy style guided by his imaginary opponent ‘Hugo’ the author tries to make sense of his country by following some history of it.
As in New Zealand some myopic characters are at work, and the peculiar mind of the author puts a magnifying glass on them. Without the fine tuned skills in English expression the inimitable style of his writing adds color and fascination to the events he describes.
