Molvania - a Land Untouched by Modern Dentistry

This was one of the books in my latest batch of books ordered from Amazon; I received it just a few days ago. It's a brilliantly-executed spoof of a certain series of backpacker-style travel books put out by a very well known Australian publisher . Molvania is a fictional country located somewhere in central or eastern Europe and would make a very interesting place to visit for a certain kind of slightly masochistic traveller - indeed I have lived in and visited one or two countries which bear a passing resemblance. It's a really amusing book to dip in and out of - there are a few laughs on almost every page. Here's the Amazon link for the UK site if you want to check it out - unfortunately it doesn't seem to be on Amazon's US site yet.
