it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

Completely ridiculous and fun. A British man drunkenly accepts a 100 pound bet that he can't circumnavigate Ireland while hitchhiking with a small fridge (which ends up costing him 130 pounds). It's heartening to see all the people who help him out and really get behind his quest. Hawks has a real gift for laugh-out-loud funny writing. And there's something moving about the whole journey, too--the insight that can come from doing things that are a bit silly. Makes you want to find a household appliance and head out on the open road.

Catherine Cronin A delightful bit of nonsense that kept me laughing for days.

Derek Sure, perhaps I'd do it with a toaster... My office-mate just started raving about this.
