©1991 Bill Bryson; (P)2009 BBC Audiobooks Ltd
I have only read one of Brysons books before and found this to be in the same lighthearted, yet educational style. Had me chuckling outloud.
"Hilariously discriptive and Brilliant"
Bill has a great expressive word power. He describes the situations, people and places with brilliance. His descriptive account of European travels creates an enjoyable picture to the listeners. I enjoyed the audio and got hooked on it.
"An American in Europe"
Dull is the adjective which characterises this book. Bryson seems to see nothing, appreciate nothing and spends endless time speculating how things and places would be improved by some kind of Americanisation. As a fan of Bill Bryson's writing I was surprised and disappointed by this book.
"Fun to listen to.."
A very lighthearted approach to Bill Bryson's travels around Europe. The author makes it a fun to listen to his travel memoir with his sophisticated sense of humor. A number of different countries across the Europe are covered with interesting anectodes and sharp critical observations at times. Narration is also very good and clear. Highly recommended.
"Wonderful Journey through out the book"
Very astonished, excellent emerging enthusiastic interesting book. Gave lot of new knowledge.Good books read. Nice Narration.
"Neither here nor there"
The book was very good as expected but it would have been nice for Bill Bryson to actually narrate it.
