The book’s contents are culled from the “True Stories” section of Budget Travel Magazine and it was published in 2008, the year Torkell left Budget Trakell for new fields of endeavor.
I had visions of wonderfully funny stories from people on vacations that would have me rolling in laughter–with that title can you expect anything less?
The sample contains eight of these true stories. Don’t get excited: each is only a paragraph in length. The nice thing is that the pictures are included in the Kindle edition.
The bad new is that only a couple of the stories are funny. And the nipple-biting stingray does not make an appearance, darn it! Neither do the impala that tried to hump a vacationer or the woman whose hair caught fire in a church in Venice, both of which are mentioned in the Introduction
So it seems that the book contains a lot of very funny single-paragraph stories; we’re just not treated to many of the funny ones in the sample.
I really want to read about that nipple-biting stingray. Since stingrays are generally bottom feeders that eat things like worms and clams and defend themselves with spikes in their tails…just where was this woman and what was she doing that caused the stingray to bite her nipple?!?
I gotta know, and the book is free…
