Be warned - this raw, unpolished adventure across the States contains alligator wrestling, leather chaps and Vegas weddings. As a multi-award winning comedian and travel journalist, Dom Joly's take on any destination is always witty, sharp, hilarious and irreverent - even more so when that destination is the backwaters of the USA.

Not always a fan of Doms work, but this is hilarious.
Well worth a listen, I was laughing out loud. Add to that, the odd places they visit wouldn’t be found in any normal package holiday.

The end of the world has been avoided - for now. With Miri and her team of extracted heroes still on the run, Mother, the disgraced former head of the British Secret Service, has other ideas.... While Mother retreats to her bunker to plot her next move, Miri, Ben, Safa and Harry travel far into the future to ensure that they have prevented the apocalypse. But what they find just doesn't make sense. London in 2111 is on the brink of annihilation.

The team of heroes extracted from their timelines to stop the impending apocalypse didn't think they needed a leader. But they've got one anyway. With their mission in tatters, Miri has been called in to steady the ship. And to focus them on their assignment: preventing the end of the world. The problem is, the world doesn't know it's in danger. With governments pursuing them relentlessly, attempting to steal the time-travel device to use for their own ends, the heroes are on the run.

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own family. He employs journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.

The unabridged version is extremely hard going. As another reviewer pointed out, it may not be the best beginning but if you make it past half way the story gets going.
