Ripley's Believe It Or Not 2016 Book Review

An all new Ripley's Believe It or Not book has been released and I've managed to get my hands on it....

* Man pulls truck with nose

* Woman marries Ferris wheel

* Girl cries stone tears

* Cow farts blow up building 

And many more crazy stories.....
The book draws you in even before you've got to the first page. This is because of the bulging, bright orange 3D eyes on the front cover that follow you around the room! But they coincide with the books tag line, "eye-popping oddities".

The contents reveal that the book is divided up into 10 sections ranging from animalsand pop culture to transport and beyond belief.

Each section is packed full of facts and shocking images. If you weren't reading the words and seeing it for yourself there is a high possibility that you just wouldn't believe what you were being told.

I've picked three of the stories out that caught my eye. 

Hand punch art looks like something I could get into. Definitely one to let you get all of your anger out anyway!

The cuddle clone simply because it made me go aaawwww.

Painful sleep. Well I struggle to sleep at the best of times but how this person can look so peaceful laying on a bed of iron wire is beyond me. 

There is an index at the back of the book which allows you to quickly find your favourite moments to show others instead of having to scroll though the whole book. 

This book is priced at £20 and with 256 pages whether you believe it or not this book certainly makes for an interesting read...


Disclaimer : I was sent this book FOC for reviewing purposes however all thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. I've had a quick look through this amazing book, some of the images and stories are amazing. It would make a great present for somebody who has everything!
