101 Places Not to See Before You Die

Have you ever felt overwhelmed when, wandering down the bookshelf aisles, you see a plethora off books that each declare that they contain the 1,001 things you just have to do, see, read, or visit before you die? If so, then Catherine Price is your girl. After having a similar experience, she decided to write a book that would help you rule out some of the things you shouldn't see, and placed them all in a neat little book.

101 Places Not to See Before You Die is a short, hilarious look at some of the places in this world that you just do not need to waste your time on. My favorites include The Testicle Festival, Your Boss's Bedroom, Any Hotel That Used to be a Prison, and Anywhere on a Yamaha Rhino.

Price's narration and explanation of her choices of 101 places you don't need to waste your time on is witty and humorous. I read through all the entries in one night, and definitely marked some places off of my "too see" list. If you're in the mood for a quick, light read, try this one on for size. 4 out of 5 stars.
