5.0 von 5 Sternen Karl Pilkington, better than ever befor... 2. November 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Karl proves that he is a lot funnier solo, than he was when he was teamed up with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
Not only is he funnier, but his unique intelligence is also more apparent, and is allowed to direct him into situations that he would not have been allowed to go to, if still with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. In my opinion, this is Karl at his best.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Addicted to Karl's Moaning 6. Januar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I first met Karl Pilkington via his globetrotting BBC series An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List. In that gem of a show, hapless homebody Karl travels the far reaches of the earth to dive into adventures that most people can only dream about—and he hates it. That’s the show’s appeal—a grumbly moaner who’d be happier eating biscuits in front of the television is forced into situations and experiences that he often finds torturous. The results are hilarious.

To be honest, I only initially tuned into the show because of Ricky Gervais—I do love me some Rickey Gervais—who, along with Stephen Merchant, acts as Karl’s devilish travel agent, casting Karl into unexpected escapades with impish zeal. At the time, I had no idea who Karl was, and my first impression of him wasn’t a good one. “My god, what a little whiner!” I said to my wife. “Who’d want to watch THIS guy?!” But his unique perspective, appalled reactions, and effortless quips won me over, and I was dying to see what he hated next. My absolute favorite moment was when he traveled to Vanatau—birth place of the bungee jump—and he land-dived from a rickety wooden tower while surrounded by tribesmen who had “their knobs in wicker.” I was in tears after that “dive,” and I laughed about it for hours later.

Needless to say, I became a huge fan, devouring all three seasons of Idiot Abroad. And when I heard about Moaning of Life, I snatched up the book, eager to see if Karl’s worldly exploits would translate to the written word.

For the most part, the book succeeds in capturing the essence of Karl’s quirky travels as he cavorts among various cultures and customs. There are full page images of the interesting people he meets along with conversation excerpts where you can almost hear their accents. He tags along with a private investigator in India, he refuses to eat off a half-naked woman’s body in Africa, he darts across hot coals in Nevada—all the while providing commentary that is uniquely Karl. For fans of Idiot Abroad, it is a continuance of that show and provides nearly as much entertainment, the major change being that Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are no longer pulling the strings. Karl is flying solo here, free to delve into experiences of his own choosing and eliminate the things that “do his head in.” For that reason, I feel that Moaning lacks a little of the bite that Idiot had, but it is still an amusing and horizon-expanding romp across this big blue marble.

Bravo, Karl.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Karl, funny as always 19. Januar 2014
Von Bloated Boy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The best version of Karl Pilkington is the one backed into a corner, figuratively speaking. With The Moaning of Life, and An Idiot Abroad before it, Pilkington is out from the shadow of collaborators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

The book does a great job expanding on Karl's adventures, moreso than an hour-long show can. But I think that the books biggest issue is that Karl's expressions and reactions to things is what makes it for me, and obviously that is lost in written form.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If You Love Karl, Buy It 5. Dezember 2013
Von Zalmorion the Fantastic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you love Karl Pilkington, the old Ricky Gervais podcasts, and any of the Idiot Abroad shows, you should buy this book. It is classic Karl. But the book is obviously written as a companion of some sort to a TV series that has not reached the USA yet. He recounts things he has to do for the production, which is hit or miss. Although, when Karl let's his mind roam free and starts giving us his opinions and observations, the laughs begin. :) Not the best of Karl, but good.

If you are new to Karl's inadvertent comedic genius, I recommend you buy Karlology first. And buy the podcasts right away, if you have not already.
