As many of you know, I’m a huge Montreal Canadiens fan.
I’m also from Newfoundland originally.
So when I saw a copy of the book Habs Fan From Newfoundland in a used bookstore this past summer, I thought it would be a perfect read for me.
I was so wrong.
It was a pretty disappointing book. It was basically an autobiography of the author’s life as it pertains to the Habs. This is what he was doing while watching this game. And this is why he decided not to watch this game. And so on.
Not very exciting. It took me a few weeks to read because it was hard to get into.
I could even excuse the book if it was funny, or at least, trying to be. But there didn’t seem to be any attempts at humour at all.
If you’re a Habs fan from Newfoundland, stay away from this book.
Now I’m searching for a new book to read. Any recommendations?
