Ripley’s Believe It or Not- Dare to Look

If you were following my blog last year, you may remember my review of Ripley’s Believe It or Not- Download the Weird. I am a huge fan of Ripley’s and used to watch the show all the time. There is something especially intriguing about seeing true stories that are so off the wall that if they hadn’t been proven true, you’d never believe it! I have owned a few of the books in the past and am excited to have been given the opportunity to review their newest edition!

I recently received a copy of the 10th annual Ripley’s Believe It or Not book titled, Ripley’s Believe It or Not- Dare to Look. The minute I opened it, it had my attention. The cover is just perfect! I also loved that again this year they have an interactive app to go along with the book. You can download this free app and as you go through the book, you will see spots to scan that bring the book to life on your phone! You can scan the oddScan spots to view videos, images and more on your smart phone. Of course you do not have to have the app to enjoy the book!

Ripley’s Believe It or Not- Dare to Look not only has the perfect cover, but also has the perfect title! There have always been weird and freaky facts in this book, but something about this edition makes my skin crawl just looking at it! There are hundreds of photos broken down into chapters throughout the book. Even the table of contents is shown with the use of photos to capture each chapter title.

As I dared to look through the book, I found myself a bit squeamish as always.  Ripley’s Believe It or Not- Dare to Look had everything from two headed pigs and jaw-less dogs to shoes made from teeth, insane art like the bicycle chain dog sculpture to my biggest fear- spiders! Yes, there is a big, bright close-up photo of a spider that is actually carrying tons of little baby spiders on her back! Uggggg Talk about not wanting to look! I could just imagine that walking through my house!

I must say with all of the  Ripley’s Believe It or Not books I have viewed in the past, this one may just take the cake! I guess things just get weirder by the year! That’s OK with me because this book kept me entertained for days (yes, it is a book that takes a while to really get to see it all!) If you haven’t checked it out yet, I definitely recommend picking up a copy of  Ripley’s Believe It or Not- Dare to Look when you get the chance. You can grab a copy for only 17.37 on Amazon right now and it’s perfect timing for a Christmas gift idea! Check it out through the link below.
