    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"
    "A humorist in the Mark Twain tradition."

    Great listen! You can start just about anywhere in the recording and enjoy it. Hugely entertaining, and enlightening.


    What other book might you compare Bill Bryson Collector's Edition to and why?

    So far every Bryson book we've tried has been both a great read and a great audio experience. These include : A Walk in the Woods, A Short History of Nearly Everything, At Home, In A Sunburned Country, and The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid. These make great gifts too - especially for anyone who has a tedious commute or is laid up in bed for any period of time - Bryson' s take on the world is always unique and often laugh out loud hilarious.
