Review by sleepydumpling
One of my favourite books of all time. The third book in Roddy Doyle's "Barrytown" trilogy, this one for me is the best of a very strong trio. Jimmy Rabbitte Sr is one of my favourite characters of all time, and this book never fails to keep me laughing, no matter how many times I read it. A wonderful story, fantastic characters and lots of laughs.
