I hope Dom keeps writing! I just wish this book was longer!
This book follows Dom Joly going to parts of the world looking for monsters, and investigating folk-lore in a light-hearted kind of way.
The Congo, Canada, and Inverness are among the places visited.
The subject matter wasnt all that interesting to me to be honest, and im not sure how honest Joly is with his storytelling. For example, Joly is in a bar, and in walks Krist Novoselic from the band Nirvana. Ten minutes later and we find out that it may not have been Novoselic after all.
I also read that his other autobiographical book seems a bit far fetched.
Then again, this is a book about far-fetched claims of monster sightings.
