    Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion on the Appalachian Trail resulted in the best seller A Walk in the Woods. Now, we follow him "Down Under" to Australia with this delectably funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance that combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. More from Bill Bryson.

    Overall

    Let me start by saying I truly enjoyed a walk in the woods.

    Since then I have listened to notes from a small island and this book. I must be missing something as this book was so highly rated. But for my money Bryson has got to be one of the most boring, dorky guys roaming the planet annoying people. His descriptions are soooooo repetitive I almost didnt make it through this book. To listen to Bryson Australia is big, hot, full of things that will kill you and not much is happening there. His pre-occupation with the PM that disappeared borders on obsession. As someone who has travelled down under multiple times I guarantee that he doesnt get it.
