Comments Two More Pints

  • Cheryl

    Most of it was either about who just died or else football.First one was funnier.Time, gentlemen.


  • Robert Hepple

    A series of semi-coherent conversations between two men meeting for a periodic drink in a Dublin pub. Incredibly funny foul-mouthed snippets of conversation, and all too short and too quickly read. I loved it, and finished it eager to read more and was pleased to learn that it represents a second selection pub conversations, the first being published under the title Two Pints.


  • Tom Templeton

    This is a charming and genuinely funny book. I read it in a day which is part testament to how good it is and how short it is. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a pint and bit of banter with friends.


  • colin mansell

    This book is essentially the dialogue of two middle aged men in a Dublin pub.With their shaky grasp of current affairs and celeties who died its very funny.This is a hard trick to pull off to make the dialogue so natural you will feel you know these characters.


  • Colm

    I wasn't sure what I thought at first. I was tired and a bit hungover so the humour wasn't hitting home and it was formatted just like the original "Two Pints" (obviously) so the sense of déjà vu was overpowering, but the following morning I woke up less cranky and irritable than the day before. Suddenly the humour was hitting its target and when they suggested the Troika looked like "they'd try to sell yeh [their] wife or a second-hand Hiace". I was absolutely won over. From that point on I w [...]


  • Greg

    Two Irish guys get together regularly in the pub and indulge in craic over a pint. Doyle has them chatting about who’s died, the Royals, football, celebrities and politics. Zero insights. Not funny. Even at this brief length, not even remotely worth your time.


  • Rob Murray

    I love Roddy Doyle's work, and this probably would be 5 stars if I hadn't plowed through this book in a furious and likely vain attempt to stuff 10 books into the last few days of the year.This book should be read in snippets, a few conversations at a time. This lets one really digest and enjoy each conversation better. In one sitting, they begin to blend together.

    8/10


  • Brian Grover

    This is a collection of "overheard conversation" between two regulars in a Dublin pub over the course of a year or two; each of the several passages is only a page or two long. The Irish people are the funniest on Earth, so I assumed I'd really like this, but it's a major disappointment. Extremely formulaic, the guys never discuss anything of any real depth, just react to whatever the news of the particular day is, usually the death of some celebrity. You can tell Doyle wrote it in pieces while [...]


  • Kris McCracken

    "Have ye heard about your man now?""Wha?""Your man Doyle now?""Wha? How many pints you had now?""Doyle, your man Doyle. He's only gone and done it again.""What man? Doyle? Wha's Doyle gone now and done now?""He's only gone and done it again. Two fellas like. Talkin', pints, 'bout the gossip and the like.""Now who'd be silly enough to read that now?""Fuck knows. Get us another round in, won't ya."


  • Ian

    I enjoyed Two Pints, which preceded this book. The format was funny and accessible and follows two ol' fellas sitting having a pint (or three) and solving the world's problems.This book just feels like more of the same, but without the novelty. Almost every vignette is based on the death of some famous person or celebrity.I would say non-Irish people will struggle to understand some of the language or cultural references. Meh.


  • Bronwyn Mcloughlin

    Short collection of conversations in a pub between two gents in Dublin. Haven't read the first volume, but profanity aside (it isn't misplaced, adds to the earthiness), found it enjoyable. Those with a fondness for Roddy Doyle will recognise the ridiculous banter style that proliferates through his works, wrapped up here as a tight parcel. Made me laugh out loud with the joy of it.


  • Johanna

    flann o'brien watches jon stewart while reading people magazine in a bar. this is a slim volume of slight pieces, one page dialogues doyle began as an exercise in understanding facebook. two old friends, middle aged aged dubliners, meet for a pint and hash out current events. the humor is often very local (i know a lot more now about manchester united than i really wanted) but the whole thing is so casual and so funny that the smart bits and the heartbreaking bits catch your breath.


  • Tiia

    I quite liked the Two Pints, but found this Two more pints more dull. None of the conversation gave me anything interesting to read about really. And all the conversations kind of seemed to repeat themselves after while. I gave two stars as I kind of like the dialog these two men are having, they way they meet up and the way they talk


  • Mark Farley

    Anyone who is lucky enough to be a Facebook friend or anything else of Roddy Doyle, will know about the beauty and wonderfulness of his more recent posts on the life and world around us, under the guise of two men in a random and unspecified pub, talking over a couple of pints. It's educational, its topical and a great new way of how fiction can be upto date and relevant.


  • Philip Davies

    Another classic of Irish pub counter banter.


  • Janet Atkinson

    Very very funny short contemporary read, laughed out loud lots. Fantastic if you are a teacher and want to show how powerful dialogue is in conjuring an atmosphere and telling a story.


  • Robyn Donoghue

    Really clever and hilarious!


  • Jack Beaton

    I enjoyed this different little book. A couple of buddies, a couple of pintsant.


  • Peter Hall

    Offensive, coarse, and painfully funny.


  • Linda

    Like the previous book Two Pints, this is way too short but I did enjoy Two More Pints slightly more


  • David

    Funny in spots. If it hadn't been written by Roddy Doyle, I'm not sure that it would have been published. Didn't have the ring of authenticity that his earlier books had.


  • Bev

    Brilliant! Hilarious! I wish I could actually sit with these two Irishmen and listen to them ruminate over the events of the day -- but I'd probably fall off my chair laughing. I love Roddy Doyle.


  • Rebecca Mckenzie

    This is a quick, comedic read of enjoyable pub banter between two men. My only complaint is that it was too short and I wanted it to continue!


  • Bram

    2.5


  • Sofia

    Två äldre män som tjôtar om livet, döingar, kändisar och fotboll. Det slog mig just att jag hade velat läsa den här på göteborgska.


  • Mikhail Baskov

    I didn't really like the first book. But this one is good. I should probably re-read the first one now.


  • Eleanor

    Great book for the loo, made me laugh.


  • Peter Holz

    Marginally less hysterical than the first one. I didn't realise so many people had died during the previous two years.


  • Jemma Jeanes

    Sat down to start this one and accidentally read it in one sitting. Just love Roddy Doyle. A nice little treat after seeing the Commitments a few weeks ago.
