"Plan B was to kill Maryanne and steal her pop tarts". Classic Bryson. This is another book that the whole family could enjoy. No words of caution, just add it to your cart.
Great stories about life as an African safari guide. Some are as funny as they are hair raising. Good narrator.
Although I usually love books that introduce me to the obsessions of others, this book--which seems aimed at men enamored with machines and World War II history--focuses a bit TOO much on tedious details. Spoiler warning: Not much is ever actually discovered in the wreck of the German U-boat itself, which, after the incredible the build-up, was disappointing. I did gain new appreciation for the horrible risks involved in deep-sea diving and serving in the German Navy on a U-Boat assigned to the United States. But I'm sure I'd have been equally enlightened had I chosen the abridged version.
