5.0 out of 5 stars Newcomers in Paradise Nov. 29 2010
By blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this book with a mixed agenda of instruction and escape and found it stimulating and helpful. To me, other recently popular books overly glamorized re-location and retirement outside the US - unlikely and unsatisfying concepts (it seemingly requires enough coping skills within the familiar customs and conveniences of this country). More than a how-to book, the author's honest account of conquering retirement, re-location, house-buying and historic renovations, ongoing communication and partnering adventures (spousal, familial, friends, systems, and community) ends up conveying his journey and discovery of a real romantic life within a la` Santa Barbara. The book establishes the depth of the author's observations, intelligence, and consideration to all involved in the process, including the reader!! I hope there will be a sequel, perhaps Sunrise in Santa Barbara, and the author and his wife will host a party on the beach to which I will be invited! After reading this book, it somehow seems attainable.
5.0 out of 5 stars A humorous account of one couple's long quest to find their ideal place to retire May 23 2010
By Amazonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Newcomers in Paradise is a treat for any reader who loves the dry wit and delicious humor of the sort that you would find in James Thurber's stories. While Bob and Pat Fulmer and all of the other players who inhabit these pages are not exactly the zany characters we find in Thurber's family chronicles, Fulmer's anecdotes are nevertheless written with the consummate skill of a true humorist. It is a delightful saga, and much more than an account of one couple's trials and tribulations, as we follow them, zig-zagging north, south, east and west across the country in search of their Shangri-La, all the while keeping up with careers and speaking engagements on both coasts. The book is a great read as their story unfolds, and chronicles a path to a meaningful new life in retirement. The author's levity is a wonderful spice peppered throughout the entire book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Charming tale for new retirees April 8 2010
By B. Greenleaf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Not everyone can relocate to Santa Barbara, but anyone who has ever made a major move can relate to Bob Fulmer's engaging tale of settling down in that enchanting city --albeit by fits and starts. As Fulmer's odyssey illustrates, getting established in a new town is never as quick, direct or trouble-free as one thinks it will be. In fact it always costs more and entails a lot of more aggravation than one anticipates. But on the up side, relocation also brings with it liberation, adventure, the joy of meeting new people and the excitement of trying new things. Whether you're seeking a "how to" or the vicarious experience of picking up stakes at a certain age, you'll find a lot to enjoy in Newcomers in Paradise.
