I finally read the book (after seeing it in Waterstones for years and years).
I liked the humor and the characters (on a way that on the same time I didn't like the same characters). A nice refreshing read between my usual detectives and thrillers.
Some of the things in the book happened very clearly in 2003, but that doesn't make it less enjoyable.

If you like this book, or Bill Bryson, try any Ross O'Carroll-Kelly book you'll run to.
Those are funny - and a perfect definition for the word "dick lit". Ross is a horrible horrible person, impersonating everything that is wrong in the times of failing Celtic Tiger. He's horrible enouh to be funny, and as a difference to this book, the spelling is funny, imitating the 'nicer' parts of Dublin brogue. (In this book the way the French spoke was awesomely spelled too).
