Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Search of the Craic: One Man's Pub Crawl Through Irish Music (Paperback)
Much like the previous reviewer, I bought this book in great anticipation as I am of Irish descent and a great fan of all Irish music. I too, persevered to the very end of the book, as the subject matter (irish music) is by definition compelling. I have to say that I completely agree that the humour was flat, often not funny and seldom well constructed. I think the author is trying to repeat the "McCarthy's Bar" formula, but Peter McCarthy he is not - that book was "laugh-out-loud" funny if you want a humorous book about traipsing round Ireland. If you want to know more about Irish music I don't think this book is worth the effort.
