5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute joy to read this book!, 18 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Holywood Star (Paperback)
Juggling final year University assignments, teaching practice and the odd tipple leaves one with little time to read books on anything other than the 'Philosophy of Education' and '101 uses of Papier-mache in the Primary classroom.' However due to a mix of reacting badly to a yellow fever vaccination and my copy of Holywood Star arriving before the official date of publication, I put my feet up and read the book from cover to cover.

I have to explain that as the son of the 'in'famous Ken Heaven, I have heard many of the stories of the Nellie days, many with different twists and turns and some that didn't make the book. However Eamon's style of writing and unrivalled ability to tell a story on paper without losing any of the wit and dry humour that come across in person, ensure a read that comes with its share of ups, downs and rolling on the floor laughing. It is representative of the joyous times and the struggles that Eamon has had over the years, and this book would hold well with anyone who has tried to make it in the music business.

Please allow yourself to be entertained with the comic stylings of Eamon in Holywood Star, you never know, there could be more stories waiting to be written and relayed to the fans of this book. An excellent read, extremely fluent and hard to put down, you will not be disappointed, and will be wanting to read more of Eamon's thoughts and reflections on his life.

Well done Eamon, however the book won't be taking a deserved place on my bookshelf just yet, as the joy is spreading through the house as each and every one of my housemates wants to read the book that had me keeping the house up at night with gales of merriment!
