Official Review: 1 Night In The Door by Matthew McCourt

[i][Following is an official OnlineBookClub.org review of "1 Night In The Door" by Matthew McCourt.][/i]

[rwc=id500291-125]3 out of 4 stars.[/rwc]How would you explain to a friend that your partner accidentally sprayed CS gas, causing chaos, and ended up receiving extra pay for ‘saving’ the day? Better still, I bet not many have heard about a fierce war that was abruptly ended by a sleeping person. Where did the much-needed sound of peace come from? Well, if you want to obtain answers to these questions and many more, grab a copy of this fascinating book. It may end up offering essential laughter therapy, free of charge, and at the comfort of your home.



[i]One Night On The Door[/i] was authored by Matthew McCourt. It is a compilation of forty-nine humorous stories from twenty-two years working as a doorman. It is about the normal and the weird, the expected and the unexpected, and, most importantly, the calm and the bumpy. While the stories involve diverse people, one irrefutable thing is they will leave every reader guffawing.



All the stories were captivating. One of the things I liked most about them was that they were simple, remarkable, and memorable encounters. There was no telling how a particular night would be. In fact, the sole thing the reader can predict is that the stories are connected with working the door. Apart from this, you only have to accept the surprises on the road. It almost feels like the writer is a master at creating twists and turns in a fictional story. However, every story was factual and convincing. It offered a valuable but little-known fact about other doormen. For instance, instead of bullying and violence, there were food and snowball fights.



There are many laudable aspects in the book. I was hooked from the first to the concluding page. It was hard to identify a favorite story. No sooner had I selected one than the succeeding one would be more captivating. In the fullness of time, the list had grown so long that I had come to terms with the fact that each one of them was equally fascinating. The only negative aspect was the overwhelming number of swear words. I guess this is more of a dislike than a negative. I discovered a few grammatical errors, which did not detract from my enthralling reading experience. In addition, the title of the book is [i]One Night On The Door[/i]. It seems an error was made when saving it on the bookshelves.



Owing to the grammatical errors, I rate this book [b]three out of four stars[/b]. It contains many cuss words and sexual innuendoes and, for this reason, is not suitable for anyone averse to them. The book is appropriate for all ardent fans of memoirs, particularly unique, entertaining stories that accompany working the door. It is a delightful book to pore over.

I don't know much about the doorman. What are these stories all about? Looks like I'm going to love one of these stories written in this book. I look forward to reading this book.
