Should Have Got Off at Sydney Parade Reviews
This was totally what I needed to read at the momwnt. Something with a little sprinkling of home, but not an awful lot seeing as I've never lived in Dublin, North-side or South-side! Absolutely hilarious & my only regret is that this is the first of his books that I've read. I will be reading the rest of them.The accent changes are hilarious & I couldn't help but read bits out loud & I did enjoy the spelling of "fill-um" & the mention of tomato ketchup as "red sauce" as I come in for much stick about that over here. The only problem with having so many in-jokes is that your target audience suddenly becomes a lot narrower, some of them I didn't get either. I will not be recommending this to any of my friends overseas! I don't even know that I'd recommend it to friends from England or Scotland either - it's that Irish!Great read though!
A year of Ross' life when Sorcha gets pregnant. Ross' mum writes a hilarious novel, and the guys are into the business of flavored holy water and do scientific experiments on a skobie...Proper Irish dick-lit, with enjoyable expressions and odd humor. This definitely needs some prior knowledge about the D4 phenomenon - A quick introduction to those who don't know O'Carroll-Kelly is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ross_O...
I love this series. Ross is such a typical D4 it makes me laugh and cringe at the same time but always hilarious! I love how to books are written in the posh D4 accent too, I find myself talking like that for ages after Ive finished one. Just about to download 'CHAMPAGNE MOJITO' and I am sure it will be as hilarious as the others!
hilarious but definatly requires cultural knowledge of the D4 phenomemon and irish culture in general. laugh out loud moments and the use of phonetics to display different accents and class of people in the books definately works for comedy effect.
Perfect book to read during pregnancy of your wife.I think it is one of the best book of series, because everyone in this book is asshole(and not only Ross as usual).
Absolutely crass but hilarious. It's the kind of antihero story that I thoroughly enjoy.
not as funny... little old now..eh.
It's hilarious! Side splittingingly funny! People think I'm simple laughing to my self on the way in to work in the mornings!
Hilarious if you know of the dreaded D-4's!!
