"Caution : Hilariously funny!!!…"
Police, Crime & 999" chronicles the true story of a life in the year of a frontline officer,PC John Donoghue. I had been promised inside access into what really happens behind the scenes of the UK's Law and Order Enforcement and the book certainly delivered!From royal arrests to chasing vampires, incontinent business women to Tourette's afflicted pensioners,bombers to irate barber shop customers, mad axemen and 'celebrating' corpses, this book had me GUFFAWING out loud with laughter!!! I'm talking tears streaming down my cheeks, sides splitting. It's hysterically funny!!!!!!!!!
It was certainly very refreshing to read a police book that is written from the humorous perspective of the job. Although extremely funny and very eloquently written, this book is also deeply revealing, moving and thought provoking. It's a treasure trove of a book and I urge you to read it. Utterly brilliant!!!Read moreLess
"Just fantastic! When my husband grinned and showed me his…"
When my husband grinned and showed me his latest purchase, it looked to me as if he has bought a gritty men only view of modern policing. Yawn!
However, after I got tired of him giggling away and quoting passages out to me, I stole it off him and had a look myself ... and what a joy to find out what's within.
It's funny, addictive and insightful, packed full of sharp observational humour, witty one liners and all told in a charming self mocking style.
I found it a refreshingly different book and I can genuinely say I have not read a book like it before.
Neither have I laughed so much for a long time. In fact, if you are embarrassed by involuntary bursts of laughter it's probably best not to read this one in public or you could end up red faced.
A fantastic light read... I loved every page of it.Read moreLess
