Brilliant book, typical Roddy Doyle language and humor.
Brilliant book, typical Roddy Doyle language and humor. Once you get into it you wont put it down!! Great follow up to the commitments. Tackles serious matters in a nice way without being insensitive. Hope they make a movie out of this one too!
