Hit-or-miss. Not Dave Barry's best book by a long shot, but hilarious in parts. Certainly worth a read. ( )

In comparison to some of Dave's other books, this is perhaps not *quite* as funny, but it's still very entertaining indeed. My favourite parts were the "Practical (insert language) phrases", especially the French phrases, which made me laugh so hard I cried. Some parts of the book felt very familiar, but I've read so much Dave Barry over the years that I wouldn't be surprised if I'd seen some comments before. Recommended for fans. ( )

A good bedtime (or bathroom) read, pick it up anywhere and get a smile and sometimes a laugh. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0345431138, Mass Market Paperback)

Dave describes the dark side of tourism with such comical precision that you'll wonder why you ever bother to leave the safety of your living room. For my money, nobody has ever produced a better snapshot of the Baggage Carousel, "where passengers traditionally gather at the end of a flight to spend several relaxing hours watching the arrival of luggage from some other flight, which comes randomly spurting out of a mysterious troll-infested tunnel that is apparently connected to another airport, possibly in a different dimension."

Humorous look at the many aspects of travel from air travel to European bus tours.
