I'm willing to bet people come up to Roo and Tony all the time and act as if they have been lifelong friends because that's how you feel when you read his books - and be sure you read them all, preferably in order (...Bear..., ...Dog, ....Kangaroo, ...Kiss...) because it's just more fun that way. You feel like you've been there for the ride, or walk, or climb alongside these crazy kids.
Tony, whatever you do, don't fall into the trap of cranking out too many books too fast, that would surely take some of the casual charm away from your stories, set your pace and keep us rattling the cage for more.
I've read them all, and must say each one gets better than the last . They are all really funny ,and Tony is a natural at describing his hilarious exploits, which he seems to have a lot of .
You could read them all in order but it really doesn't matter , although they'd make more sense to read them that way so you learn a bit about him at each stage of his travels .
This last one is about him getting engaged ,then planning their wedding ,but also includes a lot of their travels before and after the wedding ,and talks a lot more about his family . In parts, I'd be laughing on one page ,and wiping tears from my eyes at others . What a talented author !
I just went to his website and saw that they were planning a trip around our country this past year , then he will be writing a book about it . I can't wait !
Tony's wife Roo sounds like such a lot of fun , and I loved seeing all their pictures of travels, their wedding, family and friends mentioned in his book .
Roo, if you read this, I LOVE your hair ! So pretty ! And your wedding was gorgeous .
Tony , keep the books coming . I need to learn NOT to read the parts again about your "surgery " while eating . I almost choked to death laughing so hard . FUNNY stuff !
Keep on writing , I'll keep on buying and reading . I promise :)
"Can I Kiss Her Yet?" may look like a lull in the adventure, but don't be fooled -- it's just as funny and adventurous as his other books, and while it does have the more episodic feel of "Don't Need the Whole Dog," his impending nuptials provide an excellent story arc of sorts.
"Kamikaze Kangaroos" closed with Tony proposing to his Australian girlfriend Roo, and in "Can I Kiss Her Yet?" the duo set out to plan a nice fairy-tale wedding (literally, as they opt for a medieval/fantasy themed wedding). This isn't nearly as easy as it sounds -- not only are they working with an extremely limited budget gained by Tony selling his body to medical science, but they have to get Roo legally into the country for the wedding, Tony faces embarrassing but necessary surgery on a rather intimate body part, and Tony's family is struggling to find a publisher for his first book. And somehow in the middle of the mess, they find time for a wild vacation in Jordan... and Tony and Roo's honeymoon will take them on a mysterious trip to Spain and an epic (and grueling) hike across Scotland. Can these two intrepid adventurers find wedded bliss, or will wedding planning and globe-trotting misadventures do them in first?
Much like "Don't Need the Whole Dog," "Can I Kiss Her Yet?" is a bit more episodic in feel than other books -- whereas "Bear" dealt primarily with his volunteer experience in Ecuador and "Kangaroos" with his road trip around Australia, there's not a single overarching adventure in either "Dog" or "Kiss" but a series of them strung together. Unlike "Dog," however, "Kiss" does have the central "story arc" of Tony and Roo's wedding to tie it all together, and so said adventures don't seem to chop the book up as much as they did in "Dog."
And as always, Tony's irreverent and self-depreciating humor makes this book a riot to read, and provides humor even in miserable circumstances. His sense of humor might be a bit off-putting if you're not a fan of strong language or humor involving body parts -- but it's still freaking hilarious. And let's face it, when you're faced with surgery on a rather delicate part of your anatomy, it helps to have a sense of humor about it. That's probably the main reason Tony's still alive after everything he's been through -- if you can laugh about some mishap or catastrophe, you're well on your way to getting through it okay.
Another hilarious adventure by a self-proclaimed "idiot," and well worth the money. Tony Slater is well on his way to becoming the next Bill Bryson, and I look forward to reading his fifth and newest book very soon!
