The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Paul Murrays hilarious book, Skippy Dies. Read by the actor Patrick Moy.
Skippy and Ruprecht are having a doughnut-eating race one evening when Skippy turns purple and falls off his chair . . .
And so begins this epic, tragic, comic, brilliant novel set in and around Dublins Seabrook College for Boys. Principally concerning the lives, loves, mistakes and triumphs of overweight maths-whiz Ruprecht Van Doren and his roommate Daniel Skippy Juster, it features a frisbee-throwing siren called Lori, the joys (and horrors) of first love, the use and blatant misuse of prescription drugs, Carl (the official school psychopath), various attempts to unravel string theory . . . while at the same time exploring the very deepest mysteries of the human heart.
Noisy, hilarious, tragic, endlessly inventive, plain brilliant. A carnival of a novel The Times
