I like listening to Dom’s voice. He has an interesting story to tell as he goes to several places in the US as a sort of road trip, and gets into a few tight spots along the way. I like travel books mixed with humor, so this fit the ticket. Wish it would have been longer. Maybe he can make a road trip #2 sometime.
I normally enjoy Dom Jolly's travel books, but this is not a book or even a travel journal. Its a very very poorly recorded series of travel 'larks' between Dom and some giggling unfortunate from Amazon that sounds like it's been recorded on a very poor quality mobile phone.
If you can imagine a 20 minute out on the road radio show that has not been planned, produced or edited this is what you have. It really is like someone replaying something they recorded themselves, that they find really funny, which you cant really hear or understand. Oh you had to be there - it was so funny.
There is a horrendous 'announcer' who keeps interjecting at the start and throughout telling you what hilarious things are coming up. The screeching very annoying American woman's voice is at a volume that will blow your ear drums as you have had to turn the volume up to hear what Dom is mumbling on about. Dom has a side-kick, some girl from Amazon who you can barely hear as she obviously isn't mic'd up, who he tries to engage in conversation which is mostly just childish giggling - she must be in so much awe of him.
A truly dreadful listen. Only 3 hours long (thank God), Dom you can do so much better than this and Amazon should be ashamed of the blatant profiteering. Not worth 10p - will be returning for refund.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would change buying it. I would also give everyone who's speaks in here a microphone
Would you be willing to try another book from Dom Joly? Why or why not?
Had the other three already love them will get the next.
What didn’t you like about Dom Joly’s performance?
Nice voice but he is loud and the only one with a microphone so you can't hear the other people properly.
Was Dom Joly's Big American Vacation worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
Dom Jolys other books are brilliant in them he makes no secret that he loves travelling and loves to try to get others to pick up the bill for hi, doing very little work. Guess what Audible you have been punked
