A Book Review: Robb Logger’s, Don’t Go There


Here’s a little flavor from Robb’s book:

The best Sweden could offer was a hotel likely made by a manic obsessive compulsive Swede with an ice pick and a lot of free time. Greece was a haven for dirty old men with cameras. The Land of Oz didn‟t have a good fairy or a wicked witch. Russia turned out to be the world‟s equivalent of the fat girl you would think twice about at the end of the night, even with their nine last calls, and Mexico scared the hell out of me.

Anyone can buy this book for ninety-nine cents on It’s worth every laugh. It will tickle your brain, and make your cheeks hurt. Make sure you’re sitting in a pair of Depends. You might pee yourself, too.

Let’s move on….(Robb’s line, not mine)

One thing I like about Robb’s writing, he’s got manners and is consistent with such. He always addresses readers as dear readers or dear and patient readers.

Robb took careful time in doing research on certain countries for vacation spots so you wouldn’t have to. He used their websites’ homepages and Wiki-pedia for the important information that he delivered in his book. Thank you, Robb. I believe you’ve made your parents proud. Thank you for the warnings why no one should visit these places. Beware of perverts and hagglers. They lurk in other countries, too.

Let’s move on…

He researched the following countries for you: Sweden, Greece, Australia, Mexico, Russia, Ireland, Switzerland, Egypt, and Canada.

Mexico scared me the most. Been there myself. And yes, it scared the hell out of me. Too bad the book didn’t exist in 1997, the year I went there.I’ll never forget the tugboat ride and people leaning over the side puking. I’m glad I didn’t partake in the hospitality, tequila served with worms. Drinking and a bobbing boat don’t mix. My stomach had no problems churning on its own. Robb’s book brought back the vivid memory. Thanks Robb.

As for the other countries, he does a great job getting you to laugh all through the book. Robb you’re gifted with divine humor. God’s been good to you.

However, I do believe he’d like some visitors because he promoted Canada. At the end he announced his birthplace. Thessalon, Ontario. I believe he’d like a date or something. Any eligible woman. Possibly a midget. I think he likes really short women. He made my eyes tear for him.

Sorry Robb, but I’m happily married with five dramatic daughters and two dogs. My dating days are over, buddy. But I’ll be glad to read your next book. When is that one coming out?

Okay, enough of the blah, blah…(that’s my line)

Buy Robb’s book. The price is cheap.

It’s funny. Believe me. I’ve already purchased a box of adult diapers for his next book.

Also, check out his blog for a daily laugh:

That’s all for now folks!

Happy blogging, reading, and writing!



  1. Oh, I am so reading this book. Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. thanks, Shelly, I've been losing sleep over whether or not to spring the 99 cents. Your review puts a another mark in the plus column.

  3. @ Russo and Christine; He's hilarious. Really.

  4. Great review!

    Rumor has it Thessalon is a dank, desolate place at the far end of the trail, last refuge of the damned and the scurrilous.

    Oh, wait, no, that's Toronto.

  5. @ William:

    Thank you. Also, thanks for the heads up on Thessalon. That's why he seemed lonely.

  6. Great blurb Shelly. I love his blog, he always makes me laugh!


Let me know what you think.
