A funny and crazy travel across Ireland with a strange partner, a fridge, could be the right move. Think about it, it's cool and purposeless but it's a good idea.
Tony Hawks finds a lots od friends around the green emerald island, revealing himself as a good writer, with humour by his side.
A very funny book indeed.
Tony is a comedian and he begins the adventure by chance, tempted by a bet with a friend. But he really travels all around the green island with a fridge by hitch-hiking. He sees great places, meets so nice people, he has great fun. Also, he becomes kind of a star od an irish TV show and of an irish radio show.
Soooo hilarious and brave. The fridge philosophy.
Nice book, though I expected some more fun. There's a lot of Irishness in it, but I strangely found it slightly boring at the end (like Tony himself, who seems constantly horny and finally succeeds in having sex after three or four unsuccessful attempts).
The most interesting and brilliant part is the idea of the metaphoric trip:
I had learned not to worry; to make my choice and allow things to happen. For the most part they turned out to be good, and when they weren't [...] then they were character building. There weren't any wrong or right paths to choose, just different ones, and where they led was governed by the attitude adopted towards them. It seemed to me that was true of life also.
