Book Review: The Moaning of Life by Karl Pilkington...




I've been finding it hard to concentrate on reading of late, but I think The Moaning of Life is one of those books you can easily dip in and out of. I do love Karl Pilkington- he never fails to amuse me, so whenever he has a TV show or book out I will watch or read it. The Moaning of Life is his latest book, an accompaniment to the TV show of the same name which explores ways of life in different cultures.

The book reads as if Karl is having a chat with you and is set out like a travel diary. He travels the world meeting different (and often fascinating) people and seeing how different cultures deal with things like marriage, death, kids, money and happiness whilst giving his own often hilarious views on life. His travels take him to such places as Japan, Ghana, US, South Africa, Mexico, Bali, and South Korea and there are also a few picture sections throughout the book, with some great shots of Karl looking fed up. 

I really did enjoy this book, and despite it mostly being a fun, light hearted read did actually learn a few interesting things!
