Publisher's Summary

Whilst in Ireland for an International Song Competition, Tony Hawks was amazed to see a hitch-hiker, trying to thumb a lift, but with a fridge. This seemed amazingly optimistic - his Irish friends, however thought nothing of it at all. 'I had clearly arrived in a country', writes Tony, 'where the qualifications for 'eccentric' involved a great deal more than that to which I had become used'. Two years pass but the fridge incident haunts our author. Until one night, heavy with drink, he finds himself arguing about Ireland with a friend. It is, he insists, a 'magical place', so magical in fact, that a man could even get a lift with a fridge. The next morning there is a note by the bed. 'I hereby bet Tony Hawks the sum of One Hundred Pounds that he cannot hitch-hike around the circumference of Ireland with a fridge within one calendar month'. The document was signed. The bet was made. This book is the story of Tony's adventures through that incredible month. The people he meets, the difficulties, the triumphs. The fridge.

The Fridge Man

This is a great listen and really enjoyable. The book was good but the author reading it to you is even better. You can hear the characters spring to life from Tony's own perspective. Get the unabridged version the 7 hours will fly by.

Easy to listen to

Although Tony is rather self absorbed this is still a funny book. Great for a bit of easy listening when you don't want to challenge your brain cells.

Loved the humour & humility

Great travel book, despite dating somewhat re technology and politics. Easy to listen to and well performed by the author.

Epilogue seems to be missing?
