I really liked this book. The writing was wonderful, but it was the narrator who bought it to life for me. A story a conviction, courage and empathy.

As usual, great fun.

And as usual, so much I didn't know. Bryson shows again, and so simply, all that we take for granted. On this occasion it's not what is around us but within us. This book is another of his that is on my re-read list.

I love bill Bryson. but I found his writing in this book somewhat depressing. he was always complaining about something. the cost of everything, the quality of the food and the service. it just went on and on. in the end, I wasn't sad that the book ended. actially it was a bit of a relief and a disappointment at the same time. looking forward to my next bb book. I will steer away from this earlier stuff tho.
