Pat had been best friends with Joe Murphy since they were kids. A big one, and they haven’t spoken since - till the day before Joe’s funeral. On the day before his funeral Joe would be dead, wouldn’t he?Yes, he would…Roddy Doyle’s first book for the Quick Reads programme to support adult literacy is fast, funny and just a tiny bit spooky.

It was funny in parts and a little racy, though I struggled to understand it. it was like groundhog day. I wouldnt read it again.

Well, to be honest when I was reading this book in the first place I didn't understand the story and then I read it again till I understand. Besides this book contains some humorous parts that you would enjoy reading it.

it was a bit repetitive but i guess that's to throw you off and add suspense still a good read though its a fiction i liked joe the most as hes portrayed as quite funny

I was able to work out the plot very early on in the read so find the book predictable. I preferred Joe to the main character as he seem more accepting of what is going on.

It wasn't one of my favourite book to read as it was a lot of repetition at the end, sometime I got lost when I was reading and the ending wasn't very nice.
I wouldn't recommend it as it was my least favourite book to read.
