Présentation de l'éditeur

Where did it all go wrong for 18 year old Jacob Cox? His family business has been blown up with all of his new customers in it and he doesn't know who is to blame. Was it his ex gangster mother, his debt ridden father, his crazy brother, his evil little sister, the rival landlord he framed, the celebrity who wants bloody revenge, himself or one of the many other people he and his family has managed to piss off in the short time that they have been in charge of their new pub by the seaside?

Follow the secret blog diary of Jacob Cox which leads up to this explosive finale and see if you can guess who is going to light the fuse!

Memoirs of a bar steward is a crazy screwball comedy about one young mans mission to escape his family of villains, liars and psychopaths by making a success of the new family business so that he can make enough money to get away from everyone that he despises. However, is his family really as bad as he thinks or is he actually worse than all of them put together?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 frustratingly incomplete 11 septembre 2012

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
That is really funny, and laughable if you understand the slang. It makes you turn pages almost faster than you can read, which is a shame coz there are dozens of hilarious expressions per page. Though, the doom of such a great free book is that it bloody incomplete!!!... You are asked to register to twitter or facebook after 50 pages. I created a one purpose account but still only fragments were posted up to now. That is frustrating for sure. Cant give more than 3 out of 5.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent laugh! 5 octobre 2010
Par Lindsay - Publié sur

Based on the life of the author, Scott Evans, Memoirs of a Bar Steward is a hilarious account of Jacob Cox and his family moving to a seaside town in Ireland. Jacob is convinced he lives among a bunch of lunatics and after passing his A-levels, he wants nothing more than to get away from his crazy family. Through a sudden turn of events, he is named the licensee of a pub his father has bought. Jacob sees this as the event that will be the making of him, so he pitches college and moves with his family to prepare to take on the task of running his "classy establishment."

Jacob's ego is awesome. He's convinced he's God's gift to the people of Torquay, come to deliver them from their lower class ways into a more high end lifestyle. He's sure that his family will ruin his pub, and is determined to keep out the commoners and cater to the more civilized populace. He's completely oblivious to the fact that he's incredibly arrogant, and is confused when people seem to be put off by the things he says. Jacob's delusions of grandeur and total lack of social etiquette are so cringe-worthy that you can't help but laugh! Needless to say, his attitude gets him into a never-ending slew of trouble with his family and the locals (let's just say there's public humiliation and the Irish mafia involved).

The language is colorful, but adds an incredible amount of personality to the writing. When you read it, it flows more like a natural thought process than a narrative, which I personally think is fantastic! I had a professor tell me once that I write the way I speak (which apparently isn't professional), but I think that it helps to convey a larger amount of emotion and personal touch to the writing.

Mind you, this is not a book for your kid! This story is chock full of double-entendres and sexual innuendos (my personal favorite was the bit about the Queens Legs on p. 43). The language can be quite foul at times, and even crude at parts, but I think it gives a lot of validity to the fact that it's from the perspective of an 18 year old. Ironically, even though Jacob considers himself the most respectable person in his family, he often finds himself in worse trouble than his brothers. This book explores all sorts of life experiences, from work and family to sex and drinking. Knowing that this story is loosely based on the life of the author, one can't help but wonder just how much of this story is fact (ouch!), and how much is fiction.

Memoirs of a Bar Steward is an interesting concept- it's written in the form of blog posts and emails following the fictional life of Jacob Cox as he and his family move to a new town and open up their own pub. This book is incredibly entertaining and is guaranteed to give you a laugh, but unfortunately I can't bring myself to rate it higher than a 3/5. My reason for doing this is because it's essentially unfinished. It's only 47 pages long, and at the end, you're left with a cliffhanger and a link to the fictional blog, where you can read the latest entries. I think that the finished product will be awesome, and the story itself is incredibly entertaining, but I think the author should hold off on publishing until the story is complete. That said, it's only $0.99 on Amazon, and will definitely give you a good laugh, so you should check it out!

Sorry, I couldn't get through it. At the first "should of", I had to stop reading and delete. Ask a friend or an elementary teacher to proofread part two.

The ultimate mood lifter. This book will entertain you and provide an insight into the delusions of grandeur too many of us suffer from without daring to admit it. You'll recognise them as you go along and laugh out loud as you encounter the gaffes and faux-pas committed by the main character and his acolytes. A truly entertaining read and much better than a visit to my local.

I get the pun now. I should have realised. I keep trying to find a decent comedy book and thought this might be it. This is banality at its worst. I suppose one gets what one pays for though, this was free! Save your virtual money and pay to read a real funny writer. Try Stephen Fry, David Luddington. Robert Rankin, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchet etc. I'm going to give up on 'Free' books, they may be free in monetary terms but they swallow expensive time when for a little money you can buy something half decent.
