The Funniest thing you'll read.,
This review is from: Round Ireland With A Fridge (Paperback)
I bought this book on one of my many wanders through Amazon largely because of the title. The absurdity of the premise that somebody would hitch hike around Ireland with a fridge, touched the maverick side of me and so I bought it.
Simply, it is one of the funniest books you'll read. It combines the day to day adventures of Tony along with the ridiculous situations that he finds himself in. The reaction of the Irish people that he comes across is irrational and typical at the same time. It is very laugh-out-loud funny as well as touching and moving, acting as a metaphor for life - and all written brilliantly.
If you're reading this review it means that you want persuading before you commit to buying the book. Then do yourself a favour and take the punt and stick it in your basket. You won't be sorry.

I work in a hotel on nights and so reading plays a big part in my quiet moments. One of the interesting things being that the guests will always try to recommend a good read to me and this book is the one that people always recommend and although I have not read it myself 'yet' I will be adding it to my Christmas Wish list. So thanks for the review.
