Book Description

July 26 2011
The companion guide to the hysterical television show of the same name, in which Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant force their arrestingly simple pal Karl Pilkington on a global journey
"He'd have been happier in medieval times in a village where you didn't travel beyond the local community."  —Stephen Merchant
A cult celebrity due to his role in The Ricky Gervais Show, the most-downloaded podcast ever, Karl Pilkington has been accused of being a comic creation, so unburdened is he by complex thought—but that is truly just him. The trio's newest project mines Karl massive provinciality: put simply, Karl is not big on traveling. Given the choice, he'll go on vacation to Devon or Wales or, if pushed, eat English food on a package tour of the Mediterranean. So what happened when he was convinced by Gervais and Merchant to go on an epic adventure to see the Seven Wonders of the World? Does travel truly broaden the mind? Find out in Karl Pilkington's hilarious travel diaries.

If you like Carl's show then you will like the book which just compliments it. Funny and filled with lots of Pilkingtonian chat. Not a book for a serious and thoughtful read. Just buy it for the laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The British do it again! Feb. 7 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I loved the book. Having seen the show, I enjoyed how ridiculous the premise was all over again. The book arrived quickly and was in excellent condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love Karl Jan. 5 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've watched the entire season, twice. I was afraid this book wouldn't add anything new. While it does detail some of the same info that you learn from watching the tv show, there is some new stuff that pops up. For instance, more excerpts from Karl's diary and his personal thoughts. I pack this in my bag and read it when I have a few moments to kill. Love it.
