“Amusing.” (The San Francisco Chronicle)

101 Places Not to See Before You Dietakes a fascinating and hilarious look at some of the least appealing places and events on the planet—from Montana’s Testicle Festival to the Amsterdam Sexmuseum—and explains in lucid terms just what you’ll be missing out on.” (Salon)

“This clever collection of travel advisories lists all the places that are definitely not worth a trip, including a rendering plant, Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and,bien sûr, Euro Disney.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“A hilarious look at some of the most uninviting, overcrowded, unsanitary, overhyped, and stomach-churning locales on the planet.” (Budget Travel)

“Price is a delightful writer who manages to give readers more giggles in under-two-page entries than many writers could in an entire chapter. . . . Highly recommended.” (Library Journal)

“Funny and engaging.” (USA Today)

review by . September 05, 2010
   Continuing in the vein of offbeat books I've been reading of late, I picked up an interesting and amusing read at the library this week... 101 Places Not to See Before You Die by Catherine Price.  Most travel books cover the places you *should* see before you depart the bounds of earth.  Price saves us all time and agony by telling us what we can bypass. :)  If taken with the requisite dose of humor, this book is pretty funny.  Of course,  you may not think …
