London Irish Dublin English

London Irish Dublin English

Daniel M Doyle

The story is about Donal’s working life as an IT salesman for the Dublin division of a US parent company in the 1980s. It focuses largely on one pitch to a bank and the people involved in that. There is a lot of detail about how the sales process worked and the various conversations he and his colleague had with the bank. It is a novel, but reads more like a memoir. There is a lot of gentle humour, and much detail on the sales pitch.

Would You Marry A Farmer?

Lorna Sixsmith

This is a humorous look at the life of a farmer's wife, although there are some serious sections too on the history of farming relationships and the future of them. It will appeal to both women and men, farmers and non-farmers. It can act as a warning or as a catalyst for getting in touch with a matchmaker – you read it and decide!

I really enjoyed this humorous fantasy book, the first in a series of four. There is some great characterisation, brilliant dialogue, and some very funny situations. The author's sense of fun shines through, and it is an enjoyable, light read.


Fat Chance

Fat Chance

By Nick Spalding

There are some genuinely laugh-out-loud moments in this book. It was a brave move in this age of PC-awareness, writing about two fat people trying to get slim and I did have several moments of being uncomfortable as I was reading. A light, enjoyable read.


Every Day is a Holiday

Every Day is a Holiday

By George Mahood

Don’t be put off by the premise of this book – celebrating a different “day of” for each day of the calendar for six months. It is amusing, heart-warming and a lovely, breezy read.
