Two Pints

Finished May 2
Two Pints by Roddy Doyle

This short novel is an ongoing conversation beginning in May 2011 and ending in April 2012 between two male friends in a pub. With commentary on current events in politics, entertainment, sports, and other topics of interest, the two men show humour, wit, and emotion. There are also elements of the absurd, as in the antics and interests of the one man's grandson Damien and his interest in animals. This book had me laughing out loud. Doyle makes his characters come alive as usual, and his comedic timing is spot on.
