2.0 out of 5 stars On verge of giving up, 12 Oct 2011

This review is from: Our Man in Hibernia: Ireland, the Irish and Me (Paperback)
Having read Charlies previous books, Shipping, Feet, I was looking forward to this one. Alas, Ive got to page 100 and am considering giving up with it (I reckon if you arent enjoying a book by this mark then you wont enjoy it). The author spends far too much time being introverted about these so called roots of his, it would have been far better to do a travel book about Ireland rather than dress it up with this self centred quest to find roots, what about his English roots, dont they count for anything? It now looks as if hes taking himself far too seriously or has lost the creative spark of his earlier works, either way for me this is a self indulgent book. Will think long and hard about reading any further volumes from him.
