Thrift - Phil Church This is a story of the misadventures of an inadequate teacher, as the sub-title says. It's a funny and clever romp through the life of our uninspired and unmotivated central character as he gets himself into all sorts of right spots caused by his general lack of hard work.

Author Phil Church should be proud of himself for making such an incompetent and downright idle character so endearing! The lacklustre 'lessons' and each bumbling step he takes in his home life just make him funnier.

Not my usual choice of genre, but a really enjoyable read which I highly recommend.
