The only review quote:
“Anyone who plans to travel should read this book. And then stay home.” — Dave Barry
Verdict: By nature, I don’t like reading anthologies, so my reading pace was slower than usual and the book’s borrowing period is only for 2 weeks. Of the 28 stories there, I only managed to finish 14. Some stories are really funny, and some aren’t; the book caters to all levels of humour, that’s for sure.
