5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for the bedside, the john, or the airplane 24. Mai 2001
Von Aaron Dorfman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I recently finished reading this book, and I loved it. I started out reading on the airplane. The short articles make it easy to read for a while and then take a break. I also enjoyed reading one or two stories before bed and while in the bathroom.
I don't get a chance to travel as much as I would like, and I felt as though I was able to travel vicariously through Doug Lansky, the author. I imagined myself trying to steer a gondola in Venice or hiking in the mountains. It's just a fun book to read--it kept my imagination going and made me laugh out loud a few times, too.

4.0 von 5 Sternen CERTAINLY ENTERTAINING! 14. Juni 2001
Von Sandra D. Peters - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you find yourself having one of those ho-hum days, dreary days and are in need a quick pick-me-up, search out this book and buy it. Time flies when you are having fun! Lansky brings more than a chuckle or two; some of his escapades are downright sidespliting and hilarious. No one would ever dream the "running of the bulls" could be quite as Lansky tells it. My only regret is that he didn't take me with him, especially to the "gondola school." Just imagine travelling anywhere with this zany, outrageous man. He could certainly turn an ordinary adventure into a ride on the wild side. At least, by reading the book, you have the safety and comfort of home but the "pleasure of the trip" - great author, terrific off-beat book - don't miss it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Funny Funny Stuff 21. Mai 2001
Von Christopher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an entertaining and delightful read. Lansky has tried many things we have all wondered about -- and some we'd never dream of. From his 'tail' of running with the bulls in Spain to what sounds like the most grueling cross-country ski challenge ever, it is put together in a way that is mostly humorous, at times informative, and always surprising. I recommend it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Better than his first, but still below the bar 13. Februar 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Last Trout in Venice" is a slight improvement over Lansky's one-star first book "Up the Amazon Without a Paddle" (see my review there titled "awful and embarrassing"), but I don't think this has much to do with Lansky's development as a writer. Instead, I suspect it's because the editors at Travelers Tales were less forgiving than his dad (who published Lansky's first book) and trimmed out more of the bad stuff. In other words, the book is better because there is less bad material, not because there is more good material. The result is an essay collection that is usually boring, often irritating, and only occasionally amusing. Most of the time the writing barely crawls above 'amateur' status, and neither does the proofreading--I counted 18 glaring errors in the text.
Most of Lansky's adventures were not particularly funny at the time, but he's hell-bent on wringing laughs out of them with an over-reliance on a very small toolbox of comedy "cheats"--obvious exaggeration, phony comparisons to celebrities and trite, forced metaphors. His limitations as a writer become even more apparent when he starts recycling his jokes, which weren't original in the first place. At best, Lansky comes off as Dave Barry's nastier and less talented little brother, and at worst, he comes off as simply lame and untrustworthy.
The thing is, Lansky obviously realizes that his writing sucks, or he wouldn't have included an awkward and embarrassing forward in which he insists that his "ugly American" attitude is really just a persona--in reality, he claims, he is a very sensitive, informed and progressive traveler. He even includes a (possibly fake) character reference from his wife, who also assures us that he's a great guy in spite of his sarcastic and ignorant writing style. This ranks among one of the most desperate and pathetic displays of literary damage control I've seen. If you're not an ignorant jerk, Doug, we should be able to figure that out for ourselves.
Lansky is truly blessed to be able to travel so extensively and experience so much, which is part of the reason why this book, like his first, is so disappointing. There are countless glaring flaws that show him to be an incompetent travel writer (humorous or not), such as the essay where he recounts going to the Vienna state opera house and makes fun of the show, but doesn't even bother to tell us what opera he saw.
A talented writer could do so much more. I'm glad I signed this one out of the library, so my book-buying budget will instead go towards authors that are worth supporting, and books that deserve re-reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen high altitude laughs 12. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I read a few of Doug's columns a while back and remember liking them. So I picked up the book and brought it along on my trip from DC to SF. I started snickering half way into the first story, then the guy next to me on the plane wanted to know what was so funny. I read the passage. Next thing, we were both laughing. Several embarassing snorts later I had to put the book down -- didn't want to see any airplane food flying out my nose. Finished it in chunk-size portions later as Doug suggests in the Introduction. Liked some stories more than others, but for overall laugh count, I highly recommend.
