The Thing About December
The Thing About December
Price: £3.98

5.0 out of 5 stars The prose is so rich and wonderful it should be savoured and read out loud, 7 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An astonishing book that i came across by chance in my local library.
I was taken straight back to my childhood in 50"s London and became familiar again with
the speech of my parents,, the absurd humour and turn of phrase they used.Ryan manages to capture the
essence of Irishness,The prose is so rich and wonderful it should be savoured and read out loud.
My heart ached for Johnsey his loneliness and apartness echoing the lives of members of my own family who stayed at home with their parents on the farm whilst their siblings married and emigrated.They in turn never grew up but remained childlike and maudlin..separated and cosseted from the big wide dangerous world.

5.0 out of 5 stars STAY STOPPED, 10 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I stopped smoking due to bronchitis and by reading this book a FEW TIMES i stayed off the weed.
Allen makes it very clear that you can't just have ONE cigarette because if you do you're back
on the slipppery slope.
I had smoked for forty years and stopping smoking is the greatest gift i could give myself.

1.0 out of 5 stars nicorette inhalator 10mg 42x cartridges, 12 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I stopped smoking 3 weeks ago, i tried the inhalator at night when the cravings were at their peak
not only could i not sleep but my mind was all over the place.
By chance at the library a couple of days later i saw a copy of Allan Carrs Stop Smoking The EASY WAY borrowed it and hav'nt looked back.
As an on and off smoker for 40 YEARS this book has helped me STAY OFF!!
I wanted to share the good news so if you are struggling READ it.
