Bill Bryson has a way about him. His use of metaphors and adjectives is impressive and vivid. As someone who deeply loved Australia I feel he captured it beautifully. I cannot wait to hear more of his adventures. He has adopted a fan.
Bill Bryson makes me laugh out loud! His accounts of his adventures make me want to visit this land all the more. He cleverly intertwines history, culture and geography. I especially enjoyed his tales of off the beaten track sights.
Love everything about this book! It's my 3rd listen! Makes me feel like I went along for the trip! Winner!
I have had a love for Australia since I was a child. I've read the paper version of this book many times and can say that the audio version is just as enjoyable. Bryson does a great job of giving the reader just enough historical facts sprinkled in with colorful tales of personal experiences to keep you engaged and entertained. I never thought I could love Australia more until I read this book!
