Weeeeeeell, roysh, this book was, like, I didn't expect.

Roysh, at the beginning I nearly gave it up, like, I tried several times to get into the story (which consists mainly of alcohol and a lot of words and expressions that I didn't understand). I really thought I didn't like the book, especially, like, this kind of aaah, roysh, humour. But then today I got stuck, like, waiting somewhere, roysh, and the only thing to entertain me was this book.

And I gave it another try, roysh. And the story developed, like, meeting Ross' son Ronan, Ross coaching the rugby team, and it got, like, more and more hilarious. Well, a seven-year-old smoking and betting and behaving like a mafia boss (and the adults buy it), and Ross constantly misunderstanding things, his total ignorance about, like, everything. And the 1000th time the repitition of "like" and "roysh". And getting into the slang more and more ... like, I caught myself amusing my pants off.

A great waste of time *g*

Counts for Ireland.

Amazon: So there I was roysh, life focked, reputation focked, finances focked - everything completely focked, roysh, and we're talking big time. And it's all Fionn's fault, basically. He's the four-eyed focker who told me that, like, the first time you do it, roysh, you're firing blanks. Like an unloaded Uzi - seriously impressive, hard as fock and totally ready for action, but the safety's, like, on, you know. Well that was a pile of stinking turds for storters. And of course it's muggins here who ends up with the kid - life is SO focking unfair. On top of all that, roysh, the goys stort to, like, totally lose it - JP has gone all Jesus on my orse, Oisinn is basically trying to fock over Interpol and Christian is talking about weddings and, I don't know, love and stuff. I mean, I am seriously beginning to feel like I am the only good-looking, loaded, sane goy in the whole of, like, Dublin.

About the Author

Ross O'Carroll-Kelly is a man of the people -- if the people are basically birds and drop-dead focking gorgeous. Because life is short, roysh, so you can't fock about with, like, rolling mauls, you've got to head straight for the line. Which is second nature to a try-scorer like me, given my ball-handling skills. How the hell did I get so lucky? Focked if I know.

Oh, my favourite quote, by the way, roysh, is at the airport when Ross is flying to Ibiza:

"Did you change yisser money? Ders a bayoo-o de change ot dare"

"Don't moyind him, Ross. It's all yoo-ros over here, like in Oyerlind"

*g*
