Round Ireland With a Fridge by Tony Hawks


“I’m not, by nature, a betting man. However, the pages that follow in this book do not bear testimony to that. In fact they exist wholly as the result of a bet.

I’m not, by nature, a drinking man. However, the making of the bet which led to this book does not bear testimony to that. Because I made it when I was pissed.

Everything you read from this moment forth is a tribute to what can be achieved as a result of a shabby night of booze.”

The prologue above made me snort.

The next pages made me smile and soon I was laughing so hard I couldn’t see to read what came next.

The rest of my book club thought it was fun and amusing, but gave me a  bit of an odd look when I told them how hard I laughed.

Would I recommend it? I would.  When responses range from fun to hilarious what do you have to lose?

    I read this book years ago. Isn’t it crazy. Such a guy thing to do.

      It is indeed a guy thing to do. As are all the “great” ideas that happen along the way. I mean really, only in a bar while drinking too much could you decide to take a fridge surfing!
