Review: How to Survive Family Holidays by Jack Whitehall, Michael Whitehall & Hilary Whitehall

How to Survive Family Holidays

How to Survive Family Holidays by Jack Whitehall, Michael Whitehall (& Hilary Whitehall

One part ‘Lonely Planet’, one part tell-all family memoir, this is the definitive and hilarious guide on how to survive your family holiday, by Jack Whitehall, with a little bit of help from Michael and Hilary Whitehall.

No one family has more experience of traveling together than the Whitehalls. Indeed they’ve been allowing us a window to their escapades for the past five years in the hit Netflix show ‘Travels with my Father’, and in this hilarious book they have now decided to pool their advice for fellow travelers. To lay out the pitfalls of family holidays. The dos and don’ts, the highs and lows. In doing so they are sharing some of their best anecdotes. Their most extreme experiences and their most valuable advice. It is part memoir of family life, part travel guide, and full on, laugh-out-loud funny.

Whatever your version of holiday preparation the truth is always this: if it is with one’s own family, no amount of sunshine, wine or holiday spirit will stop your worst character traits coming to the surface. You have just volunteered to spend a week in close proximity with the people who know you best and who will never EVER let you forget a f***up. No one survives unscathed. Things are always going to end in tears, you can only hope they’re of laughter.


4 Amusing Stars

How to Survive Family Holidays by Jack Whitehall, Michael Whitehall & Hilary Whitehall is collaborate book to share their family holiday memories and some laugh-out-loud funny moments along the way.

Jack and Michael are well known from their hit TV series on Netflix “Travels with my Father. This TV series is a LOL must watch and I highly recommend you give it a go. With both of there different styles of humour they complement each other really well.

This book is a touch on that really and has some really funny moments within. I did think at times it was dragged along but really if your looking for a funny, relaaxing, light red this is for you.
