Product Description

Product Description

'Not so fresh' from his robbery-rich tour backpacking through Europe, our hero (?) Bryn Parry is supplied with the stella-surprising news that the girl he has loved from afar has buckled under ten years intense pressure and has agreed to join him on a five day break in Mallorca.... as 'just good friends'... obviously.
'One thing doesn't lead to another' and the singletons return home from the Balearics damper and even more frustrated (at least, one of them was)....
Could Cupid tackle his toughest assignment of all time and manage to forge some sort of hankie pankie for this golden twosome amongst the sultry, rhythm-infused, climes of Cuba and in the vastness which is The United States.....? I do hope so............................ because the two of them have to face 'yet another robbery', 'swim with a pair of sexually obsessed dolphins' and 'sleep in the most haunted hotel in The Americas'... amongst other phenomena of the bizarre. Let's all wish them the best of luck!

More About the Author

The author was born into the austere world of 1950's Bootle (just missing out on the delights of post-war rationing).He enjoyed a very happy childhood living in an extremely un-insulated council house with his parents and sister, surrounded by a supportive community of neighbours. His early education was undertaken at Sterrix Lane Primary in an old barrack hut vacated by an 'anti-aircraft battery' (which, somehow, managed to be even colder than his perma-frosted bedroom). The teenage Bryn spent most of his time swatting at Bootle Grammar School for Boys (to a soundtrack of the impeccable music of The 70's). Parry emerged from his 'school years' long-haired and eternally grateful to Harold Wilson for withstanding intense pressure from 'across the pond' thereby saving him from having 'The Vietnam Experience'. During his periods doing 'The Higher Education Thing' the author accumulated a minimalist wardrobe plus a BEd(Hons.), MSc and PhD at Edge Hill and Liverpool University. A prolongued career as a Secondary School Teacher came to its glorious climax in 2005 with only a minor set of 'nervous twitches' as a legacy. In the few fleeting moments left unaccounted for whilst maintaining his three 'highly energy-efficient' little children, the author has managed to write some books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok; but could be much better 21 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is ok and fairly well written. It is quite disappointing in that you expect a road trip from the books title; however the author and his wife are too scared to drive in the USA and therefore the "Road Trip" isn't. Additionally the author seems to complain a lot about everything which just gets tiresome after a while, and doesn't seem to want to explore the forign culture and cuisine. I read it, but wouldn't recommend it to others

The more of this book I read, the more irritating it became. The author is a secondary school teacher, yet he does not have a grasp of even basic spelling, grammar and syntax. I fear for the future of this country's education if this is typical of the standard of teaching.

If the author ever bothers to write another book then he should definitely engage the services of a proof-reader who can actually use the English language.

There may have been some amusing stories in this book - but they were overshadowed by the appalling lack of finesse demonstrated. I hope and pray that Bryn Parry does not teach ENGLISH !!!
