I end up in fits of laughter every time I pick up this book. Bill's best!
Sometimes I read a book and think to myself "I could have written that," but I could not have done justice to small town travels the way that Bryson has. Admittedly, there are slow moments. Overall it was such a fun read and, in true Bryson tradition, I laughed out loud and forced my husband to listen excerpts as I went along.
This was the first of Bill Bryson's books that I read, and I think it is still his best. I find small-town American endlessly fascinating. The Shriners! Bill shows us America through his Anglophile eyes, which helps.
One of my favourite books of all time - have read this 4 or 5 times now, and it always has me in stitches. Bryson's best ever book too, I think.
