New Borat book

You’ve seen the movie; now it’s time to read the book.

Just in time for Christmas, our favorite Borat has gone and penned a travel guide to his home country of Kazakhstan as well as an accompanying guide to the USA.

As you might expect, Borat: Touristic Guidings to Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan; Touristic Guidings to Minor Nation of U.S. And A, is full of the same bumbling irreverence we’ve come to expect from comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. But unfortunately, according to early reviews (the book will be released November 6), the humor of last year’s comedic smash movie doesn’t translate well to the written page. In fact, USA Today states that “the book is much more vulgar and sexually graphic than the movie. Without Cohen’s winsome screen persona, the printed stuff is just gross. NC-17.”

Well, that’s disappointing to hear but it’s not going to stop us here at Gadling; we’ll get our hands on a copy and post a review in the near future.
