The bank setting was really just a convenient backdrop to string together several short stories. Terry Wogan is well known for starting out in banking in Ireland and he has obviously drawn on this experience to use a new bank branch opening and a new manager as a convenient vehicle for this motley collection of stories. The setting could otherwise have been any gathering of people - and not necessarily even that!Several of the stories harked back to Terry's childhood/young adult times, so it was [...]

very amusing. could not put it down.

A series of short stories about people all linked together through the local branch of the bank. The stories aren't long so you don't get that much extra background information on the characters, but I don't think it really mattered in this case. I could just imagine Terry Wogan sitting in my livingroom telling me the stories :)

A gentle collection of vignettes about Ireland back-in-the-day, with a couple of really touching moments. I found this in my stocking on Christmas morning, and it went down well in the lazy, chocolate-stuffed post-Christmas days.

A lovely reminder of what it used to be like to work in branch banking - the staff, the customers, their small town hopes and dreams. Could hear Terry's voice in each witty story line. A gentle read.

I laughed a lot at some parts of this book, but unfortunately a lot of it wasn't that great.
