really liked it

There is three books here, one many know. The Commitments which was made into a successful film. The Snapper and the Van are teh other two. Both made into lesser known films. In Ireland The Snapper was teh most recorded TV program in Irish history and I think was only surpassed for viewership by the Popes visit in the 1980's and the 1990 world cup when we beat the Italians, man was that a good day. These books all capture Irish humour perfectly and living in contemporary Dublin. Be aware there is a lot of language in these books.
