I did get a small smile or two but the book isn't nearly as funny as it thinks it is. Well, it might be funny if you are a bro and you think farting and commentary about bodily fluids and semi-fluids is humor.
There is almost no Iceland in this book. The author does slip in a little bit of history and local color, but it's so minimal and stranded between bro tales that it might as well not even exist.
Don't waste your money.
I was looking forward to a light-hearted and humorous take on a trip around the country, something I once did with a friend a few years ago myself. This book was light-hearted in the sense it contained very little depth and if your humour consists of laughing at fart jokes and finding people that avoid paying for tourist services funny then I suppose it could match what I had expected. However, I don't find it funny that they didn't pay for the trip up Hallgrímskirkja or avoided tipping a lady who was working as a guide at Erik the Reds old settlement and answering historical questions. The writer described the settlement or hut as a "boil" and the lady as seemingly mad. It was quite ironic I felt that the writer both drew attention to the financial crisis that Iceland has been through, and also attention to the fact he did quite well financially from sales of a book he wrote previously, and was therefore ok for money, before then describing with glee how they avoided paying for a variety of services. Beer money seemed to be the priority. It is incredibly childish behaviour and another irony was that these guys traveling are actually young professionals, not some kids on a gap year who may not know any better.
To be fair to the writer, and it massively pains me to be fair at all, he does say in his introduction that the book is not going to be detailed or factual and it will contain a lot of "you had to be there" type jokes.Read more ›
