    How to review a book without sounding like a twat...Loved the situational wordplay(twat), thought there were some brilliantly observed linguistic contradictions(tosser)and laughed out loud(wanktanic) on several occasions. Buy this book. Buy it now or i'll eat your children.

    A funny and irreverent take on Willy Wonka, set in modern day Ireland and with its tongue firmly in cheek. The author's great sense of humour shines, with lots of laugh out loud moments, and sections you keep reading to the person beside you, whomever they are! Just a funny book and a great read...

    Like the author, I too spent many childhood Christmases watching Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. Sometimes missing the beginning, sometimes not, but always silently boo-ing the baddies and cheering the victory of good over evil. Poor Alfie, I don't think even Roald Dahl could have imagined such a pitiful and squalid life. The scenes involving the dear oldies made my stomach turn so thanks for that Jeff. In fact, there were many descriptions which had an adverse affect on many of my senses. A good and positive thing in a book as far as I'm concerned. All of the characters were inherently horrid but it's not difficult to find someone you know in there! The book didn't always hit my sense of humour radar but I could appreciate the joke/point being made. There are lots of Irish/Dublin cultural references that I can't imagine would be easy for others to spot but it was certainly refreshing to read a book with so many that I could relate to. Interesting to hear what others who aren't... More > Irish make of it...< Less
