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...
