    Hupaisa kokoelma kertomuksia koomikon hirvi jahdeista eri puolilla maailmaa Eka oli hienoin, sitten taso hieman notkahti, mutta miellytt v matkaluettavaa silti T ytyy lukea muitakin Jolyn matkailukirjoja.

    I ve come across two very different versions of Dom Joly One is the pleasant family guy I ve seen in Cirencester s best coffee shop The other is the TV personality who has appeared in the kind of excruciatingly unfunny shows that I wouldn t watch with a barge pole This is not quite a mixed metaphor if you use Decartes model of light Luckily, Scary Monsters and Super Creeps was written by the former Joly.Although ostensibly about hunting down famous monsters from bigfoot to the ogopogo, it is probably best read as a humorous travel book, one of my favourite genre, and the reason I bought it There are some wonderful writers in this genre think, for instance, Bill Bryson, Dave Gorman and Stuart Maconie In fact, for me, the humorous travel book is far better than the serious kind.In principle, Scary Monsters ticks all the boxes We ve got a funny, self deprecating narrator and interesting locations to visit Not only do we get Loch Ness, but we also get to see the likes of Japan and the Republic of Congo through Joly s eyes Like all good travel stories, some of his adventures are fraught with problems, and a couple of near death experiences What can possibly go wrong It s really hard to put your finger on what is wrong with this book but t...

    Totally worth the 99p I paid for this book, that s not a slight on Mr.Joly s work, in fact this is the first work of his I ve read and it was a blast from start to finish Funny and easy to enjoy it made me want to drop everything,pack a bag and go monster hunting.

    I think that there are two things that you have to consider before reading this book The first is this are you a fan of Dom Joly To be completely honest, I didn t enjoy this book very much simply because I have no idea who Dom Joly is, what his accomplishments are, etc He seems to be famous in the UK at least he makes it a point of telling us so his arrogance may be his sense of humor but I didn t enjoy it and he makes a lot of references to his TV shows, past travels, and other works, but honestly those just flew right over my head because I couldn t care less I think that when he wrote this book, he had a very specific target demographic in mind his fans in the UK And I was not one of them TBH, this just seemed like one of those things that publishing houses publish BECAUSE the author is already famous and has a reliable fan base, not because the author is necessarily a good writer The second thing to consider with this book is that you shouldn t read it as travel writing That is definitely my opinion at least The book classifies itself as travel writing but I strongly disagree that anyone should read it as such I work at a travel agency and a lot of my work revolves around researching on places Therefore, I ve somewhat developed a nose for good and bad travel writing and if ...

    A mildly entertaining travel log, specifically documenting the silliness that accompanies Dom while he goes in search of The Big Six scary monsters I had the feeling that rather than Dom has been obsessed with the world of cryptozoology being the motivation for this book, actually Dom had some success with Dark Tourist, and wanted to do another travel log Having realised that he could use the title Scary Monsters and Super Creeps referencing the David Bowie album by the same name this set the scope for this book It is worth noting however that I have absolutely no evidence for this assertion, but that too is rather fitting for this book.Other than being somewhat over credulous regarding the existence of these creatures, the problem is that rather predictably there is very ...

    This is a travelogue with a gimmicky premise to hunt for crytozoology marvels like Nessie or Mokele Mbembe, but that s largely a vehicle for Joly s comments on mundane human absurdity, small mindedness and self importance This takes him from the jungles of the Congo to the peaks of the Himalayas and to, erm, Inverness, in search of these creatures A lot of these mis adventures generally involve him getting pissed and moaning about his hotel this is Karl Pilkington than David Livingstone but he does trek out into some wonderful places and have some great experiences Whilst his commentary on the travels and travails is often very funny at times it slips into self indulgence and some of the anecdotes don t really hit the mark As a result of being a description of real trips, it tends to be tonally all over the place, which I think is the source of some of the negative reviews.I d say I really like it it is an odd, brave, somewhat Quixotic little book ...


  7. says:

    Dom Joly travels around the world in search of creatures that may or may not exist Bigfoot, the Yeti, Ogopogo, and the like He doesn t find any of them, but that doesn t really matter, because this book is about the journeys than the monsters And those journeys are filled with odd incidents, interesting people, and travelling frustrations, all recounted for us with Joly s judicious jocularity It doesn t hang ...


  8. says:

    A very enjoyable read about Dom Jolly s adventures travelling around the world in search of some of the iconic monsters such as Big Foot as well as a few lesser known cryptozoological mysteries You won t find a great deal new on these creatures but ...


  9. says:

    Quite a variety of takes and tales here Not sure how much I d seek of the same, but I didn t hate my time on his journey The writing isn t bad, but nothing to rave about.

    Great fun no, it s not going to give Dr Karl Shuker any sleepless nights but this is the definition of good time spent in excellent company.
