Round Ireland with a Fridge by Tony Hawks

Round Ireland with a Fridge Read Online Free -

Have you ever made a drunken bet? Worse still, have you ever tried to win one? In attempting to hitchhike round Ireland with a fridge, Tony Hawks did both, and his foolhardiness led him to one of the best experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty traveling companion-cum-domestic appliance, he made his way from Dublin to Donegal, from Sligo through Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry, Cork, Wexford, Wicklow--and back again to Dublin. In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge met a real prince, a bogus king, and the fridge got christened. They surfed together, entered a bachelor festival, and one of them had sex without the other knowing. And unexpectedly, the fridge itself became a momentary focus for the people of Ireland.

An international bestseller, Round Ireland with a Fridge is a classic travel adventure in the tradition of Bill Bryson with a dash of Dave Barry.

This is a gimmick travel book, and the gimmick is awesome: the author made a bar bet that he could travel around Ireland with a fridge. And by "travel," I mean "hithchike." Unfortunately, that's the funniest part of the book. The rest of it - I got the feeling the author hadn't quite settled into...

Completely ridiculous and fun. A British man drunkenly accepts a 100 pound bet that he can't circumnavigate Ireland while hitchhiking with a small fridge (which ends up costing him 130 pounds). It's heartening to see all the people who help him out and really get behind his quest. Hawks has a rea...

This was a fairly entertaining book which does exactly what it says on the tin. Lots of laughs included and Hawks personality certainly shines through. Having been to Ireland myself, I can certainly appreciate the craic! It's not going to change your life but still worth the read about an entirel...

This guy's funny. But ridiculous. It reminds me of my travels from when I was in college, when much of the excitement was a direct result of me and my friends being stupid and broke, and consequently everything around us goes wrong. And all of us wishing we were getting laid. Tony Hawks is basicall...

One drunken night, somebody wagers that Tony Hawks, a British comedian, can't or won't hitchhike around Ireland with a fridge in tow. Wrong! He does so, as the title of this comic travel memoir makes clear, which is hilarious. Unfortunately, there isn't much more hilarity once you get past the tit...

Generally interesting enough , quirky and cheeky in many ways. I think a lot of the humour didnt work for me but may do for those reading it from a non Irish view point. Things that may seem a bit mad to some all felt very mundane to me so didn't grab me really. Still a fun enough book and an inte...

Honestly, one of the funniest, happiest books I've ever read.

This book was awesome-- it's soo the type of travelogue I love to read. The title alone is enough to make you want to read it (and the cover, as tattered as it may be), but the premise behind his quest really hooked me. I read this book in about 2 days, and can honestly say that there wasn't a bo...

The touching tale of a man and his fridge, this is the story of English comedian Tony Hawks who, for a £100 bet, hitch-hikes around Ireland in one month with a fridge. This book really shows the good of people and the lengths some will go to to help someone else with no thought of reward. It's sad...
