Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Hobart is a pugnacious, yet loveable rogue, who manipulates his long suffering nephew into numerous tricky situations; including, hunting an ostrich with a smelly sock, visiting France in a home made balloon, exploding the farm's best cow, and shooting the world's only homing pig. Hobart is the kind of man that you like to meet, but can't wait to walk away from. His homemade philosophy is: “Everything's okay, so long as there's plenty 'o beer there be drunk.” Recently, widowed, Hobart has been on the look out for someone to cook, clean and tidy up for him, a point his nephew misses until it's far too late. Hobart is a forceful character with strong views, and woe betide anyone who disagrees with him. If you like a chuckle at people's misfortunes - you'll love Hobart at Home.

Got tired of reading this book only 1/2 way through. Too much nonsensical slap stick attempts at humor annoyingly laced with the mention of "hissing open" another beer, downing a pint, or pulling a beer from a pocket. Events are derived from an imagination that are typical of The Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner episodes....Tale Tale hogwash. Two stars for the times that it made me grin.

Totally impossible for so much to happen to one person but very very funny. Keep writing books like these.
