"A Terrific Read"

May 15, 2008

Extreme Expeditions: Travel Adventures Stalking the World’s Mystery Animals by Adam Davies is getting a lot of thumbs-up reviews. The first to appear was entitled “Monsters! Booze! Jungles! Guns!” at Nick Redfern’s blog, There’s Something in the Woods… Wrote Nick: “If you’re looking to find out what really goes on behind-the-scenes during the course of a quest for monsters in exotic locales, then this is most definitely the book for you…Easy to read, packed with adventure, intrigue, humor and (of course) monsters, Extreme Expeditions is a book that’s entertaining, informative, memorable and instructive…” Then came Matt Bille’s review, entitled “A terrific read,” in Matt’s Sci/Tech Blog. The book, wrote Bille, “is not your average cryptozoology book. Davies spends a minimum of time rehashing old evidence and instead tells a rollicking first-person adventure tale…The book is a jaunty, sometimes profane tale of colorful but basically sane people making a sincere, sometimes dangerous effort to solve zoological mysteries.” Bille liked the book so much, in fact, that he wants Davies to do an encore: “I look forward to a sequel, if Davies survives his future expeditions long enough to write it.”
