3.0 von 5 Sternen Seicht 18. September 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das erste Buch hatte ich beim traveln in Vietnam vor vielen Jahren gelesen und hab noch einige der Geschichten im Kopf.
Leider hat das Nachfolgebuch dieses Level nicht gehalten. Die ageschichten waren wenig spannend und recht seicht.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing to say the least. 4. Februar 2002
Von P. Street - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I wish I had read the reviews of the first volume of this series because if I had I might have not wasted both the money, and time I spent on this book.
It is almost impossible for me to believe these are even the second best stories that Lonely Planet could find among all the writers they have hired over the years. This book actually makes it less likely I will use their guidebooks from now on. Why should I use a company that seems to hire people who are either drunk much of the time, naive beyond belief, or both.
The travails of a man who got so drunk he missed his charter flight home from the Canary Islands. Another story of having a dental plate worked on during a holiday. Is this really the best stories they can find?
While there are several moderately good stories here, spend your money more wisely on some great travel books by Dervla Murphy, Pico Iyer or, if you really want to read about someone pushing the envelope, try Danziger's Travels.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Useful - but not in the way LP intended 28. Oktober 2004
Von Andrius Uzkalnis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This little book is an essential read for those who wish to understand why so many LP books are mostly naive, hysterical, biased waffle. It will show you, in great detail, the sad people who produce these poorly researched newsletters, and you will get a deeper insight into why most of the Lonely Planet books are a waste of money.

(Enthusiasts of LP can stop reading now and click NOT HELPFUL straight away. Thank you.)

A reviewer before me summed it up very neatly about the writers: "either drunk much of the time, naive beyond belief, or both". I could not say it better.

You read this book and you see this is all about getting drunk, missing the plane, getting drunk, not complying with immigration regulations, getting drunk, and then getting drunk some more. And always, ALWAYS going to the poorest countries and driving a hard bargain with the poorest people there so that afterwards they can proudly boast how they crossed India (2000 miles or something) for $11.50 when the going rate was $11.70.

I remember reading, with disbelief, in LP guide to West Africa about how you can take a journey of over 100 km for $0.11 instead of $0.15 or something. Now I know what kind of dolts write these guidebooks and I perfectly understand them.

Having no money is no sin; having no brain and no thoughts in your head and not seeing ANYTHING beyond the cheapest bus fare on a rusty bus (Oooh! I'm not going by taxi like all those disgusting rich people! I am so proud of myself! I think I'll meet up with Deanna Swaney and get drunk!) is not a sign of intelligence; but writing travel books when the ONLY thought in your head is saving money and getting drunk - this is just plain sad.

"Disaster Stories"? Yes. The biggest disaster is that most of those writers ever got their boarding passes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Short Stories from the Lonely Planet writers 17. September 2003
Von Stephen C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you love travel, you'll love this book.
The book is a collection of short stories from the writers of Lonely Planet. It's a great behind the scenes look at the people that put together the high quality books.
Charming, funny, and even scary stories make this book a wonderful read.
Many of the stories will make you laugh out loud, others will make you thankful that you weren't there!
Lonely Planet Unpacked will help you relive your own travel adventures. Only people that have truely traveled (backpacked)will get something out of this book. As for all travelers have their own tales to tell, and this book lets you hear what others have faced in the pursuit of seeing the world.
A great read!
