In Holidays in Heck, P.J. O'Rourke-- humorist, journalist, and political writer-- hovers between writing a travelogue and humor book and doesn't quite succeed in either.

Split in to essays covering stories of trips to China, the Galapagos Islands, and Ohio, among others,O'Rourke shares the perils of travel, often focusing on travel with family.

Though O'Rourke's essays are tinged with his right-leaning political views, they only become overbearing and potentially offensive in the essay discussing the 2008 presidential election. However, Holidays in Heck contains neither enough useful information for those looking to travel nor enough jokes for those looking to laugh.
