3.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect a quiet read, 22 Aug 2010
This review is from: Fear of Hat Loss in Las Vegas (Paperback)
It may sound like a strange description for a book but Fear of Hat Loss in Las Vegas is LOUD.

When you put together the components of the book it all makes sense though. It is written by an Australian, a race of people not known for being stand-offish or reticent. The authors day job is stand up comic, a profession not known to attract shrinking violets. The location of the book is Las Vegas, a city that is a temple to excess and is as brash & flash as it is possible to be.

This may be a travel book but not as we know it. If you want to learn a little about Las Vegas as you would from reading 'proper' travel books by 'proper' travel writers forget it. If you want to be amused though, and enjoy reading about a group of blokes having fun with the aid of alcohol and other mind altering substances and don't mind a liberal sprinkling of bad language this could be the book for you. Just don't expect a quiet read though.
