did not like it
Read in April, 2009

I rarely read bestsellers, but decided to put my snobbish prejudices aside as someone had recommended this to me. Curse them – it was drivel from start to finish, and only mildly humourous at times (admittedly with one laugh out loud moment).
The character descriptions were all painfully overelaborated in order to try make Pete McCarthy’s journey around Ireland seem more interesting than it was, and the “soul searching” felt contrived. Tosh.
Not worthy of more words here, I’m going back to avoiding bestsellers.
