Really funny - made me laugh out loud.I'm considering opening a cafe in the near future and saw this book recommended on a random forum. I loved it and can only hope Christopher Nye continued a career in writing! Highly recommended

Christopher Nye pulls no punchs in revealing what it is really like to start your own restaurant - and the impact of major chains. It is also very enjoyable in it's own right.

This book is a great account of small town England and will be instantly recognisable to anyone who has either worked in a restaurant/diner or has seeked out fastfood whilst fuelled with alcohol. A "real-world", witty account of everyday life flipping burgers in East Sussex - covering the relaionships with both staff and the general public (mainly called Gary - "How did you stick it for 7-years Chris?"

Yes, it's very funny. But it's so much more than that: he puts his heart on the page, you will be desperately rooting for him. It doesn't matter if having a diner or burgers (I'm vegetarian) aren't your thing; anyone who has ever considered pursuing their dream will love this book. Just READ IT.

This was very engaging and funny, maybe a 4.5, but it did all get a little predictable and drag towards the end. I guess we all knew what was coming, but it seemed that there was a little padding in there. Still, a lively, fast read and ideal for a plane or train journey.
