    One thought on “The Devil Wears Clogs”

    1. A very readable book about an enthusiastic American girl bumping around Europe, changing jobs and looking for love.Every American going to work in another country should read it. Judging by the kind of work does, the author must be exceedingly bright, but she portrays herself as the archetypal American naïve – expecting the whole world to function like it does back home, and being amazed when it doesn’t. However, she does at least have the courage to say grudgingly of herself: ‘you can ta [...]

    2. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Having only traveled overseas, I can only daydream about what it must be like to make that jump and decide to live abroad. In The Devil Wears Clogs, Burge takes us through her experiences, the good, the bad, and the ugly, giving women across the states an idea of how that move might go down. While reading this book invoked some frustration, some sad eyes, and more than a few "Oh no! Don't do that!" from me, there was plenty of [...]

    3. As the author of this How Not To Live Abroad memoir on corporate travel and politics, I think I'd better love it! If you're interested in what it takes to move your career overseas and be successful, enter here and have some laughs at my expense. If you need more convincing, check out what my fellow female corporate nomads are saying on : amazon/Devil-Wears-Clo

    4. What a FANTASTIC piece of nonfiction! I am recommending this book to all my friends and family. It is perfect for anyone (male or female) that is considering living and/or working outside of the United States. I had difficulty putting this book down and cannot wait until the next installment comes out in print. Great job Ms. Jennifer Burge and thank you for sharing your personal experiences, both positive and negative. You allow the reader to really get to know you while providing sage advice.

    5. While it was interesting to read her views and experiences and I was glad she ended up happily with her Dutchman, I'm afraid the author reinforces European prejudices by not understanding the basics of European life. Sadly, a lot of the USA has been brought up isolated from the rest of the world so our differences scream out. This book underlines the dichotomy

    6. As someone who lived as an expat in Amsterdam I was hoping to find some common ground with the author in this book, however I really couldn't. She moans a lot about Dutch people and attributes to them characteristics that I really couldn't identify with through my own experiences. She also talks a LOT about work and work-related conflict. It's not very interesting to read about. Also, there are a lot of typos - the book doesn't appear to have been properly proof read. On the plus side, I found i [...]

    7. Pack your bags and goOhio to Holland and beyond.I loved the book. Since we are in completely different areas of work, some of the technical descriptions were not so interesting to me, but in spite of that I was hooked till the end.Will definitely read more books by this author.

    8. A very readable book about an enthusiastic American girl bumping around Europe, changing jobs and looking for love.Every American going to work in another country should read it. Judging by the kind of work does, the author must be exceedingly bright, but she portrays herself as the archetypal American naïve – expecting the whole world to function like it does back home, and being amazed when it doesn’t.

    9. As an American living in The Netherland for the last 18 years, I think this book was one big Pity Party for the author. There are not that much difference in living and working in the US than here. I have had VERY FEW of the problems she had and lived to smile about them. There were some very good parts of the book when she (the author) was traveling and not moaning.Please be considerate of other's feeling when casting all the whole nation of The Netherlands in one basket!!

    10. I wanted to like this book, as a fellow expat American woman working abroad, and some aspects of the book were entertaining. However, I reported more typos and errant words than I could keep track of, which were distracting. I also felt like many observations and descriptions were surface level, without deeper explanation, and the ending felt rushed. As she says about herself in the book, perhaps she isn't used to opening up and it will take some practice.

    11. This is obviously a story about culture shock, something I learned about in college. It was not very enjoyable for me to read as it is a retelling of a depressing adventure. There was too much narrative about the work she was doing, as that was not the interesting part of the story. There are some good sections which I did enjoy. I received this book free from the Giveaways.

    12. The joys and frustrations of working in Europe and the societal games one must play to fit in. Reinforces that Americans think the world revolves around their mores and other cultures are lesser than. Won this book on . bookcrossing/journal/1

    13. A Life I've Always Wanted A great read and a reflection of the life I've dreamed of living. I loved the descriptions of the personalities and culture.
