Umsonst ist nur das Leben

Umsonst ist nur das Leben - Paul Burke Some parts of this novel were really funny, laugh-provoking and well-written. I found the lives of the two main characters Andy and Dave quite reproducible, though I don't have any connection to Polish or Irish life in the UK in the 1970s, or ultra-catholic families and the implications that come along with that, but I really believed the boys' troubles and burdens that they had to overcome. At times, the book got quite lengthy and a bit boring, but I liked the twist of fate in the last part of the book, though the end came rather abruptly and left some things unsaid.
