Top Customer Reviews
In reading about Barney you will recognise aspects of your own father. Perhaps things you just didn't see clearly as you were growing up or couldn't be bothered acknowledging or trying to fully understand.
It's a warts and all book that gets beneath the skin of Barney and peels away the complex layers of a man who struggled to feed his large family.
A wonderful, enlightening book that I recommend everyone to read not just once. You will get more from it the second time you pick it up. If your own father is dead read Malachi's book and think about your own dad. If your father is still alive read Malachi's book and go and sit with your dad and talk to him. If you are a father yourself read Malachi's book and go and talk to your children.
A book that will make you laugh but also a book that is deeply moving. Read and enjoy it. I did.
