sure -- Bryson is good fun.
It's ok. He gives a sort of dorky, American perspective to it.
I had actually hoped for a more modern perspective on Britain, so I was somewhat disappointed. But it was good fun, aside from that problem.
Not really -- certainly not as worthwhile as a regular PDJames book.
No. Same answer.
The story is not as bad as the negative reviews claim that it is. It's not great James, but it's not terrible.
However, Landor has a very annoying habit of giving a tiny gasp in almost every paragraph, and in literally EVERY paragraph that is a quotation from a character in the novel. This mannerism isn't noticeable at first, but starts to grate after a while. It's as if the only way she can think of making a statement sound important is to give a little at the end of the sentence. Arghh.
