    In the first of three essays included in this audiobook, Bill Bryson decides to move his wife and kids back to his homeland, the United States, after nearly two decades in Britain. But not before taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. The result is a hilarious social commentary.

    Annette says: "My second of three (so far) Bill Bryson books"
    "Bill Bryson Collector's Edition"
    Overall

    I loved Bill's "A Walk in the Woods" but these books lack the humor and adventure that I expect from him. Bill is a TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE narrator.....maybe these would be a better read.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "He wrote The Da Vinci Code?"
    Overall

    Boring, boring, boring. Needed some serious editing. If you like DC architecture and history, you might like this implausible story. As suggested, the bible could be more entertaining.
