Oi, mate, is that monstrosity diesel? From the author of the bestsellers Don't Tell Mum I Work on the Rigs, She Thinks I'm a Piano Player in a Whorehouse and This Is Not a Drill, this is the eagerly awaited next installment of Paul Carter's rollicking life. Take one mad adventurer and a motorbike that runs on bio fuel (cooking oil i.e. chip fat to you and me) and send them with one filmmaker on a road trip around Australia just to see what happens. What you get is a story full of outback characters, implausible (but true) situations, unlikely events and unfortunate breakdowns, all at a break neck pace. Never one to sit still for long, this is what Paul Carter did next. Whether you've been shocked, delighted, entertained, horrified - or all of the above - by Paul's stories whether from oil rigs or the road one thing is for sure, they are always high octane adventures.Revue de presse :
Some people cure boredom by going shopping; Carter does it by taking a bio-diesel motorbike around Australia... Don t buy this book if you re offended by seriously bad language: we re talking direct quotes from hardened oil riggers.
I laughed so hard I cried but there is also poignancy here... Carter captures the moment with pithy observations that achieve an almost transcendent lucidity at times, and is funny enough to frame.
When Carter eases off on the profanity and throttles up on the wit, he gets the chequered flag every time. The book is funny, entertaining and for rev heads informative.
