Book Review: Spain by the horns

I picked up this book at the Big Bad Book Sale recently. I must admit, the cover was the first reason I did so - a cover, so rich and colourful. The second reason was because of the word 'Spain'. I am a fan of all things Spanish.

This story by Tim Elliot, an Australian journalist who sets off to Spain to find out what makes Jesulin, a famous metador, tick. As he criss-crosses the country in search of an interview with Jesulin, he meets interesting characters that show what Spanish culture is all about - colour, costumes, music and passion.

An easy read that provides an insight to all things Spain, in a fun and fast-paced manner.
Rating: 3.5/5
