Classic Karl Pilkington; if you've watched the TV series or listened to any of the podcasts with Ricky Gervais then you'll know what to expect. If you haven't, then Ricky, Steve and the production team are sending Karl around the world on wonderful opportunities to experience local culture and new things, aka tormenting him with things he really doesn't want to do, and putting him in the most awkward, uncomfortable, and unusual situations they can manage to get away with.
Karl is hilarious, a true idiot, and yet a genius as well. His simple logic delights me, whilst inwardly I cringe in horror at his often culturally inappropriate behaviour, and then laugh out loud at his hilarious outlook. He manages to make the most mundane things funny.
This is a companion book to the show I suppose, but I think it gets more in Karl's head, and is accompanied by wonderful photographs, maps, phone conversations and local information. Completely entertaining. Meeting Karl on holiday would be an unforgettable experience that's for sure.
