    I bought this book because I loved Karl in The tv series Idiot Abroad There s nothing funnier than seeing him as the reluctant traveller, having to do Ricky Gervais s bidding He s funny in the tv series, because he doesn t hav...

    For me, the genius of Karl in the podcasts is that he was unaware that he is such a hilarious man Steve and Ricky set him going and then we laughed along with them at his ridiculous, outlandish statements.In this book, Karl is aware that he is an amusing man but he is trying to recreate his spontaneous, natural statements in a concious way Originally the humour resided in the fact that he was unaware how funny his opinions are now he s aware of it and is del...

    Not sure if it s because I m a big fan of the Ricky Gervais XFM broadcasts and his famed podcasts as Karl is nearly the main feature in them all but this book was hilarious Nearly every chapter made me laugh out loud in the literal sense Definitely the polar opposite of an intellectual read, but worth it for the hilarity None of the stories are fiction ei...

    I bought this with my boyfriend in mind, but ended up reading it myself before I d even given it to him I was surprised that I was so little amused by the book I find Pilkington very funny indeed, but as a lot of these stories have been recounted in the podcasts which I ve li...

    I, like a lot of people, know Karl Pilkington as the reluctant traveller from the television programme An Idiot Abroad When I saw this online at a very good price, I simply had to pick it up I love Karl s one liners and the way he summarises what everyone is thinking brilliantly This book is a collection of diary entries and summaries from trips Karl has done with his family, mates and school chums There s also cartoons and comic strips drawn by Karl and a few attempts at poetry, but it s the stories where Karl s talent really shines.Or should that be bad luck Karl seems to be fraught with it on his travels There s the solidified toilet in Ibiza, the time he accidently got high on hash chocolate, getting stung by a jellyfish in the Caribbean and the maze like hotel in Tunisia No wonder the poor guy isn t keen on doing any travel The book is written just how Karl speaks me mam and dad run a butty shop etc My mother and father have a sandwich shop, not anything involving butts but I found it easy to follow along, perhaps because I know some English people who use the same colloquialisms Once you get into the rhythm, it s like Karl ...

    Not something I d read usually but my wife got it from the library so it was lying around It was o.k for bathroom reading but, having listened to Karl and Ricky Gervais on the podcast, I could always here Karl s voice in my head and Ricky s hysterical laugh If n...

    This is gonna be a quick review as I have 3 logs and 2 assessments this week.This book is typical Karl Pilkington nothing ever impresses him and misfortune seems to follow him.The book is written like a diary in some parts and in others it s flashback sort of things of every holiday he s had.I didn t like it as much as An Idiot Abroad this is going to sound mean but I preferred it when he went to places that he didn t want to go to not on holidays he s booked hims...

    2.5 I probably should have stopped reading Karl Pilkington s books, except I bought them in bulk before I read any, with my only experiences being the XFM radio show and podcasts with Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant The shows podcasts are, in my opinion, significantly better, though perhaps if you haven t listened to them, you might enjoy the books Most of the best insight anecdotes I had already...

    People keep going on about global warming, asking us to turn the heating down cos the ice is melting and polar bears are drowning, but no one cares They should tell everyone that angry spiders from Australia are moving over here cos of the heat, and then we d soon turn off one of the bars on the fire. I like Karl Pilkington, it is hard not to like him The book contains Karl s tales on his holiday experiences and his musing on life With picture...
