Summary

This is Rory's story of being brought up a Catholic, going to Catholic school, being an altar boy; of the parents, priests, the nuns who taught him, the life and characters at his local Church. Until, that is, as a teenager in crisis, he abandons his faith and enters the god-forsaken world and the glamour of its evil ways with a spring in his step.

Lighthearted, funny, sad but always entertaining

I was dubious about this book but thought i'd give it a go. So pleased I did! The tales goes back and forth to diferent parts of Rorys life. Funny, sad, but always entertaining.

Im not Catholic so some pieces may have passed me by, it certainly didnt detract from the pleasure I got from the contents of this book. My biggest problem was trying not to burst out laughing in public places whilst listening.

Surprisingly awful!

I really enjoyed the first instalment, Bearded Tit, which had charm, a story and was a really interesting birding tale as well as the human tale. This read like his publisher pushed for volume two and Rory thought another cheque would be nice but had little heart in it compared to the earlier one. A pity!
