Round Ireland with a Fridge (Tony Hawks)

Tony Hawks in Edinburgh

Tony Hawks‘s book, Round Ireland with a Fridge, was our November book club read, and it provided much amusement to our readers. The meeting was very small, as it’s a very busy time of year, but we had some good discussion about the book and catching up with what we were reading individually.  The book centres around the fact that Tony travels around Ireland taking a fridge everywhere that he goes, what happens on the way and how he transports it from place to place.  Everyone who’d read the book felt that only in Ireland could this happen and he had some very interesting and humorous adventures on the way which you could only imagine occurring in Ireland.  It was very much enjoyed and proved a good tonic for the shortening rainy days of October and November!
