it's hard to imagine how a somewhat normal home could be dissected and researched in such fascinating detail. The stories that surround all our lives come to life. I could listen to Bill Bryson's books over and over and still learn something new on each repeat. Thanks for all the entertainment and knowledge!

it's unimaginable the research that Mr Bryson would have done to find all these fascinating facts and stories about the world and beyond. Then to put it in such an entertaining style, so succinctly and intelligently, without leaving the mere individuals floundering is jaw dropping. He's a very clever man yet able to reach us average folk with wit and empathy. The reading is incredibly good and accurate and not too over-pumped. well done all round! Diane

The stories were compelling, but it is the man you come to adore after hearing of the humanity and non-judgemental way he has of dealing with everyone. Please clone him!

I loved this book, and more especially since it is narrated by Mr Bryson himself. He is fun and funny. he is able to encapsulate ideas and feelings that most of us have but have never been able to put into words. I was disappointed to get to the end.

Fantastic Frolicking Fun

Full of overblown characters and unlikely plots which build up so beautifully that you are left in stitches with tears rolling down your face. So funny, so well written, so joyous.

Well written and nicely read. the reader captures the way that someone "on the spectrum" might speak. The story is a nice one and finished too soon!
