Molvanîa (subtitled A Land Untouched by Modern Dentistry) is a book parodying travel guidebooks. The guide describes the fictional country Molvanîa, a Soviet state, a nation described as "the birthplace of the whooping cough" and "owner of Europe's oldest nuclear reactor". It was created by Australians Tom Gleisner, Santo Cilauro and Rob Sitch (locally known for The D-Generation and The Panel in Australia). The book has been criticized for promoting racial stereotypes.

The funniest book about travel you will ever read: a travel guide to the fictional European republic 'Molvania', birthplace of the polka and whooping cough.

Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, and Rob Sitch are founding members of Working Dog, one of Australia's most successful creative partnerships. Very funny, as are the orher two titles in this series. There are several other titles mentioned in these books as future publications in the Jetlag Travel Series.

Molvania: A Land Untouched by Modern Dentistry by Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner . We bumped into one another, alas, at the Boots travel sickness remedies.

Molvania: A Land Untouched by Modern Dentistry by Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner and Rob Sitch 296pp, Jetlag Travel Guide, £. 9. As the EU flings its arms wide to embrace the new members of the family, legions of travellers will be pondering a suddenly richer, broader, and stranger holiday horizon. We bumped into one another, alas, at the Boots travel sickness remedies counter in Heathrow Terminal 3, not in Molvania's Katflaap nightclub where we might have swapped travellers' tales over a garlic vodka.

Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). A book I WILL NEVER SELL and not a book to read while traveling on an airline or after having stomach surgery.

Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, Rob Sitch. This guide book to Molvania is hilarious! It does a wonderful job of mocking the real travel guide books through exquisitely detailed mimickery. Great for a gag gift to any traveler.

The books were written by Australian comedians Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner and Rob Sitch of The D-Generation fame. The guides all feature a Fictional Country, all exaggerated versions of stereotypes about real-world regions. The first and most well-known of the guides is Molvanîa: A Land Untouched by Modern Dentistry, released in 2003.

A Jetlag Travel Guide by Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner and Rob Sitch. The original Jetlag parody guide book about a fictional country called Molvanîa, in Eastern Europe. Rural, barren and heavily polluted, the laughable attempts of this guidebook to sell tourism in Molvanîa is wildly entertaining. The vegetation here is typical of central Molvania - thistles and weeds interspersed by barren, rocky patches. The expansive beauty of this exposed land seems to stretch on forever, and over the centuries it has attracted painters, poets, romantics and cement-mining consortiums.

A friend showed me one of the books in this series (Phaic-Tan) and it was such a riot that I ordered it as well as others in the series the same day. This is a strange planet, where some countries can send people to the moon and back, and other peoples are still living in the Stone Age, with a whole lot of humanity somewhere in between. That makes for a lot of potential sarcastic humor, which is what we see in these guidebooks to countries that do not actually exist. Humanity, laugh at yourself! If you have ever travelled in the Second or Third World much, a lot of these creative sketches will make it possible to grin over what may have been a painful or frustrating experience at the time. The books are fun... although I sometimes wondered if they were not perhaps made up by escaped creative writers from Monty Python's Flying Circus.

BEWARE: Formatting is terrible on Kindle. Print is so tiny it's unreadable, and doesn't allow zoom. I've downloaded several times on different devices. Why this book? It's the only book I've had come out this way.

CONTENT: Good
I've enjoyed what I managed to read -- very similar to "Rates of Exchange", but not as good; reflects the bizarre world of post-soviet eastern Europe. Tongue-in-cheek travel guide; a visit without leaving home (although my home is in eastern Europe!)

I'd rate it at 4**** otherwise.

My brother in law is one of those annoying people who has everything and is content in life (go figure, lol) so he is EXTREMELY difficult to shop for. I almost think he finds amusement in the fact that people really have to work hard to get him something that is either a) useful or b) at least not utterly useLESS. When I saw this book, I just about did cartwheels because he is in dental school and has a great sense of humor. I figured this would be the PERFECT gift for him because he wouldn't expect it, he loves to travel, and could definitely appreciate the sort of over-the-top content. Definitely a good buy. :)

The 2 star rating is because, after buying it, I found that it was incompatible with my Kindle and I can only read it using the Kindle app on my computer.

Content of the book is 5 stars though. Very funny. I just wish I could read it on my Kindle since that is what I bought it for and there was no indication I could see that it was incompatible with my Kindle Paperwhite.

A book I WILL NEVER SELL and not a book to read while traveling on an airline or after having stomach surgery.

Page after page of hilarious commentary about a country that exists in the fertile imagination of the author.
History, Culture, favorite foods, hygiene, transportation and accommodations are all included in this fictional travelog.

I simply could not stop laughing and if I were trapped on a desert island this would be a book I would love to have
with me.

Absolutely hilarious "travel guide" poking fun at Eastern Europe. I've been reading it in chunks whenever I'm stuck outside the house for long periods of time, and every time, I get odd looks from people wondering what the hell I'm laughing so hard at.

Embraces and describes Eastern Europe
I ain't gonna lie, I start planning the trip to Molvania tomorrow. Or maybe I should hit Phaic Tan first...
