A funny collection of short pieces about the travels of Karl Pilkington. There are diaries and dreadful little poems, cartoons and 'true stories', photos and storyboards, all riddled with the unique Pilkington brand of madness. Whether it's New York or the Lake District, this reads very much like a child's 'What I did on my holidays', full of what he had for tea and bizarre observations about what he's seen and done. At first I could almost hear Stephen Merchant reading it, as he does in the 'Karl's Diary' segment of the wonderful Ricky Gervais Show! I wouldn't read it again, and I certainly wouldn't have paid the cover price because it's very short, but it was a nice bit of fun for my week off...

This man is either the greatest comic invention bar none, or he really is as daft as messrs Gervais & Merchant make him out to be. Other reviews have said that the book reads like he talks and I couldn't agree more. It's a long time since I've sat and laughed to the point of crying at the contents of a book, and the only time I did put it down was to dry my eyes, reading it in one sitting from start to finish.

I hope there are more to follow, I'll just have to remember to order a box of hankies at the same time.

I love Karl's view of the world. It makes perfect sense yet is so funny at the same time. I would recommend to any one who maybe needs cheering up. Karl Pilkington thank you

Laugh out loud funny, just as I expected. My first read of a Karl Pilkington book but not my last.

Good book far too short though. 14 more words required 10 more words required 6 more words required 2 more
