Editorial Reviews

Review

“Wonderfully engaging. . . . Bryson is a keen observer of what’s amusing, ironic and absurd.” —USA Today

“Riveting. . . . Bryson is a master. . . . Almost as satisfying as being there yourself.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Bryson is a jovial companion and his typically funny self.” —Chicago Tribune

“A cheeky romp through Britain’s heart . . . affectionately celebrates, and devilishly skewers.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Such a pleasure to once again travel the lanes and walking paths of Britain in the company of Bill Bryson! . . . It’s a rare book that will make me laugh out loud. This one did, over and over.” Erik Larson, author of The Devil in the White City

“Genuinely hilarious. . . . At Bryson’s age, he can (and does) feel entitled not only to be done with such ugliness, but also to express his displeasure in ways most of us only dream of daring to do. And when he sees beauty and wonder in the world, he is rhapsodic—even evangelical.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Bryson’s capacity for wonder at the beauty of his adopted homeland seems to have only grown with time.” —The Washington Post

“Charming. . . . Traveling with Bryson is fun because he never sugarcoats the hassles, the overpriced crummy food that runs abundant in touristy places—and the absolute delight of finding unexpected sights or happenstance meetings. . . . Here’s hoping Bryson remains cranky and curious for many years to come.” —The Christian Science Monitor

“Bryson is an entertaining travel companion. . . . He writes lyrically on the monuments at Stonehenge and Avebury. He is great on the joy of walking through the English countryside.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A gloriously funny read. . . . Bryson has no equal.” Daily Express

“A funny and pleasant travelogue. Bryson can capture a place memorably with just a sharp phrase or two. . . . Wry and winning.” —NPR

“A prolonged and hilarious love letter describing Mr. Bryson’s 40-year relationship with his adoptive country. . . . A joyous tribute to British patience, stoicism, sense of fairness. . . . Generous, funny, modest and admirable . . .  packed with great writing.” —The Washington Times

“Fascinating. . . . A worthy successor and sequel to his classic Notes From A Small Island. . . . You could hardly ask for a better guide to Great Britain than Bill Bryson.” The Miami Herald

“The history of a love affair, the very special relationship between Bryson and Britain. We remain lucky to have him.” Financial Times

“Is it the funniest travel book I’ve read all year? Of course it is.” Michael Kerr, The Daily Telegraph (London)

“Everybody loves Bill Bryson. . . . He’s clever, witty, entertaining, a great companion . . . his research is on show here, producing insight, wisdom and startling nuggets of information.” The Independent on Sunday
