Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen - Paul Torday I would normally actively avoid any book with the ‘Richard and Judy’ label stuck on the front, but this one was thrust upon me so I thought I would get it over with. I surprised myself in the most part by enjoying it. The first couple of chapters about the politics of getting someone to do something they think is stupid and the subsequent reversal of the positions (and blame) I found to be highly entertaining (and, alas, an accurate reflection on politics/life at work in general). The rest of the book was entertaining enough - lightweight, easy to read, with an unexpected but not convoluted conclusion. If you don't like your paperbacks to be too heavy, long or worthy then you'll probbaly enjoy this.
