    I was re-watching my DVDs of the first couple of seasons of "The Lucy Show" (1962-64) and I had always noticed in the credits that the show was based on the book "Life Without George" by Irene Kampen. Well- I went to Amazon and the scarce used copies of "Life Without George" are going for nearly $100. So, I thought I'd give "Europe without George", her followup book, a try.I really like her writing style; probably it was somewhat of an inspiration for Erma Bombeck's style of humor. This book, as you might guess, is about a six-week tour of Europe that the author made with her college-age daughter, Chris (the daughter's name was used when "The Lucy Show" was created). Taking a trip because of the money made from her first book, the author and her daughter encounter all sorts of eccentric people and different experiences as they are on a Cook's Tour of Europe for 6 weeks. I just loved it.**#92 of 100 books pledged to read/review in 2015**

    A journal with Irene & her daughter around Europe is a fun read. You're taken along as they meet some interesting characters and have some interesting adventures. It's a great book for one of those short reads or an in-between series break reads.

    I picked up this book while browsing in Beckham's Bookshop on Decatur Street in New Orleans. Just $4, it contained an inscription from the author to her friend, and I found a typed letter the author wrote to the friend within the book. What a fun find! The book is quite entertaining, just a light, fluffy fun read following two American women through Europe in the 60's.

    I picked this up initially because I'm a fan of The Lucy Show and this author's work served as the basis, but I found I enjoyed it on its own merits. I could see where The Lucy Show drew assume inspiration, but I really enjoyed the writing overall. It was a quick, fun read.
