This book is a must have for any fan, i couldn't put it down. The way Karl describes each holiday experience he has encountered is immensely hilarious!

A good read.

  very funny

I just loved this book as Ricky Gervais says "If you think Karl Pilkington is a genius then your an idiot" Oh well I must be an idiot. This book made me laugh, though you have to watch where you read it, if your like me and read on the bus you will get funny looks for giggling to yourself ha ha but who cares its good to laugh :) :) so go on buy this book and have a good chuckle.

  Just not funny.

Maybe I'm not understanding the humour, or I'm just missing the point completely, but I didn't find this book funny or entertaining at all. Also, the writing style is horrible - it could have been written by a child.

Much better than the 1st book, which was difficult, i laughed every second, it gave me stomach cramp every time i picked the book up. Buy this...its well worth it.

  Much better than the first book.. this is some new material!

The previous KP book was just transcripts from their podcasts, but this is a book he has written all about his travels, and although some of the stories you'll probably have heard before in the XFM shows and podcasts, its a good book!!!

some funny pictures and photos of karl as a kid which is nice

downsides? well its quite a short book

  I'll read it again and again

Laughed every page. Can't really fault.

You will have heard a lot of stuff from the Ricky Gervais Show (The Karl Pilkington Show, let's face it) podcasts, don't see that as a bad point though. But a lot is also new. It is definetly worth a buy.

  Pure hilarity.

This book is simply hilarious. Its like an insight into the mind of an absolute madman yet you cant help but agree with some of his points. No matter is too large or small to trouble Karl. From 'Keeping an eye' on volcanoes to make sure they dont erupt while he's on holiday to discussing how ants 'like a good biscuit just like he does'. The man is a genius, he just doesnt know it yet.

  Funny as hell

More exquisite surreal delights from the man who said the immortal words 'If you can't treat a cheerful tramp - they who can you treat?

  Great, but overrated

i eagerly anticipated the delivery of this, yet found it not up to expectations. I expected to be laughing out loud at every page, but found it was more of a smile. Shame when i have found loads of Karls other stuff hilarious, maybe its just the topic of holidays. Great for the price, but dont expect it to be AMAZING AMAZING! hehe.

Karl Pilkingon is a comedy genius! The best bit is he doesn't even know hes funny or trys to be funny, its just his insane thoughts pinging around in his head that makes him so funny. As Ricky Gervais says he either a genius or a moron!
Karl's thoughts are so funny and just goes to show how different people are.
Some of this book will make you laugh out loud and as you would expect theres loads of Karl's great cartoon drawings in there too.
