      Disadvantages

      I didn't actually read this I heard it.... I loaned the audio book from the library and it is superb. Aiden Gillan reads the story (what a voice!!) of Paddy Clarke growing up (in 50-60's Ireland) and coping with life. To beging with he hates his brother and performs all those horrible rituals every younger sibling has had to endure, he loves George Best, he wants to be a priest. The narrative jumps all over the place with random interjections of wisdom spinning off tangents, which can be annoying. The book grows with Paddy as his attitudes change to almost everything including Sinbad (his brother), this is driven by the fact his Da and Ma are always arguing. There are way too many things in his antics which remind me of my past (surely Roddy Doyle did most of this himself). The overall result is a very touching very sweet very funny book I'd recommend to anyone, particularly if it's read to you.
