    Story
    "If you liked the movie, you'll like the book!"
    If you could sum up The Commitments in three words, what would they be?

    Great music story!


    Which character – as performed by Aidan Gillen – was your favorite?

    Jimmy- the story revolves around him.


    Any additional comments?

    The dream of rock and roll stardom, and how close a band could come. This is a great story for anyone who ever dreamed of joining a band and (almost) making it big!

    and its through this book that you will meet Jimmy Rabitte who loves music especially 'Soul' he gets a few friends and starts a band.You need to get this book and trust me you will enjoy it.
    The Dublin characters are so funny.
    And now 'The Barrytown Trilogy' is out in audio cd form. FANTASTIC!!
    If you want a smile put back on your face you will get it through these awesome books.
    ENJOY
