I'll Never Be French (no matter what I do): Living in a Small Village in Brittany Free Audiobook Download by Mark Greenside

With [Mark Greenside] living in a small village in Brittany, it's not surprising that he never quite blends into the culture. He's too old for hippies and too young for farmers, so he finds himself feeling like a fish out of water. But after discovering an American girl who is also struggling to fit in and make friends, Mark begins to realize that France isn't really all that different from America after all.

What is the point of being French? It's a question I asked myself more than once when living in a small village in Brittany. I had no idea, but my experience left me feeling like there was something inherently wrong with me. This audiobook, narrated by Jonathan Beville, follows Mark Greenside as he moves from San Diego to Brittany, the only American living in this small town. His experiences are not those most people would have and they are far from what we expect when coming to France for the first time. From discovering his family tree to finding himself face-to-face with an old man at a restaurant who seems to know him better than anyone else does, this memoir is one that will make you laugh and cry as you follow

I'll Never Be French (no matter what I do): Living in a Small Village in Brittany is a memoir by Mark Greenside. It's about the author's experience of moving to a small village of Frenchman, France. The author describes how his days are filled with drinking wine, eating cheese, and trying to learn French, but he never quite finds himself comfortable as a Frenchman.

Mark Greenside grew up in the English countryside and knew that he wanted to move to France. For a long time, his dream seemed unreachable. In 2006 he finally achieved this goal when he left his home town and moved to Brittany, France. He spent three years living there and writing a travel guide for Brits who want to visit the region too. Now, he's back at home with no job prospects and no career prospects-and struggling to find himself again after two years abroad!

Mark Green is an American living in Brittany, France with his wife and three children when he decides that he wants to learn French. He has no idea what he's getting into. His first few months have been rough, but he soon learns the ins and outs of life in a small village in France. He makes so many friends and enjoys meeting new people with different backgrounds.

[Jonathan Beville] narrates this story, telling us about his life in a small village in Brittany. He opens up about a lot of different topics, such as how the neighbors don't always get along, how they feel when they hear the English accents and how they speak English themselves; they are very proud to be French but are not afraid of foreigners. The author is fluent in French so he tells the story through his eyes.
