Book Description

The classic follow-up to A Bit of A Do, about the comedy of Yorkshire life, told through seven more do’s is now available in ebook format.

Life is still a social minefield in this small Yorkshire town. From the opening of a vegetarian restaurant to the inauguration of the Outer Inner Relief Ring Road, join Ted and Liz as they struggle through another series of excruciatingly funny ‘do’s’ in this sequel to A BIT OF A DO.

Can Ted find happiness with a waitress, now that he and Liz are no longer an item? Can Liz bring comfort to the grieving Neville, her strangely immaculate second husband?

Above all, how will Ted’s ex-wife Rita manage as her family becomes more dysfunctional at every function? Can she possibly be as happy as she seems?

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny and enjoyable sequel 27 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought as a gift for a fan of the TV series, "A Bit of a Do", it lived up to expectations. The story continues with interactions between many characters in many permutations, and is an enjoyable read. The actual printed copy is a slight disappointment. The print is unusually small, with a wide margin all round, as if the type was set for printing a smaller format page and then used on larger paper. The paper itself seems quite coarse, even for a paperback book, which doesn't help the readability. 5 stars for the content bu only 2 for presentation. If you have any eyesight problems I'd suggest looking out for the hardback(which I haven't seen, but assume would be better) or a large print version if available.
