Birdwatchingwatching - a snore bore of a book

I read a few reviews of this book, no ravers, but I stilled requested it for my birthday. What a waste of a present! I got about a third of the way through and gave up! It was that dull.

Like many, I read books in bed. So no problems falling asleep with this one! If Alex Horne is a comedien I won't be bothering to go and see him live. I recall a couple of titters, but nothing more. Nope, I didn't get it. I didn't find it interesting. I didn't find it at all funny. I didn't understand why he couldn't refer to his dad as his dad instead of some pretentious made-up name of Duncton - is that meant to be funny?

Oh, and he's one of those non-Scouse, glory-chasing footie fans who follow the red half of the 'calm down, calm down' city of squeaky voices. Nuff sed!

Hi Steve

I managed about half way when I decided that life was too short to spend any more time on this book.

Cheers Steve
