REVIEW| Dan and Phil Go Outside

Dan and Phil Go Outside
Dan Howell, Phil Lester

Find on Goodreads


A personal collection of candid photos and insightful stories from Dan and Phil’s adventure ‘in the real world’

Dan Howell and Phil Lester, avoiders of human contact and direct sunlight, actually went outside. Travelling around the world on tour, they have collected hundreds of exclusive, intimate and funny photos, as well as revealing and captivating side notes, to show the behind-the-scenes story of their adventure.


The Cover:

This cover just embodies Dan and Phil. 

And if you're not familiar with who Dan and Phil are; well they're Youtubers. They make video content, that is both relatable and humorous over on their channels: danisnotonfire and amazingphil.

And this cover just represents them. It's perfect ? 

Their choice at creating this visual explosion works both at enticing people who may not know who the hell they are to read it and enough for the Youtube community to spot all the little easter eggs from their channels and of their recent stage show.

Bold, enticing and enough to keep my eyes feasted on this cover for hours!

The Content:

Unlike their first book: The Amazing Book is Not on Fire this one is just a giant photo album/book of the events of the past year, with some captions and maybe a few inserts of random events peppered throughout. Something that both my childish teenage side and my matured "ADULT" side did appreciate.

I'm pretty sure this book came about because Dan likes his physical memories so they ended up shoving everything into a book that he could stroke in bed when Tumblr finally lets him escape. So now we all get one!! WHOOP! I say shoving like this this wasn't carefully laid out and not visually stunning. That would be completely incorrect. It felt informal and straight from the horses mouth (SORRY PHIL!!)

Anyway, the reason I gave this five stars is similar to why I gave their last one five stars. This book is supposed to be a celebration as to what these two internet nerds have managed to achieve. And that is definitely what I got whilst I speed through this. 

Whole heartedly, if you just want something that will make you laugh out loud and you enjoy their videos then this book and TABINOF is something you might want to just pick up. Whenever I'm down and have no internet, this is what I always go and grab off the shelf.
