5.0 out of 5 stars Great, funny, crazy read, 28 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great book- very funny and off the wall as Joly travels the world trying to be a monster hunter and getting into all sorts of scrapes. One moment he's in the Congo tying aman to a tree who is trying to cut him with a machete and the next he's in weed country in Northern California trying to walk out of the wilderness after a car crash. Joly writes really well- perceptive, honest and funny. A must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS HOLIDAYS, 6 Sep 2010
I picked this up, not knowing what to expect. I was a big Trigger Happy Tv fan but didn't know if this would be to my taste. I LOVED IT. The book is well written- very funny and informative without being preachy. Dom travels the world going to some curious destinations and getting into all sorts of scrapes. He skis in Iran and gets drunk on "Pizza" (Iranian moonshine). He goes on a road trip across the USA visiting the scenes of various assassinations. He takes a weekend break in Chernobyl and gets stuck in a lift. He goes to Cambodia and tries to buy Pol Pot;s shoes before ending up in a war crimes trial. In North Korea he thinks he;s been targeted by the secret service as his testicle swells up to a huge size. Finally in Lebanon he tries to get to the truth about being at school with Bin Laden and plays paintball with Hezbollah

BRILLIANT BOOK- BUY THIS....
