    Grab your umbrella and join best-selling author Bill Bryson for a grand tour through the heartland of the United Kingdom. As he wanders through tiny villages and bustling cities, his irreverent travelogue will keep you laughing out loud and eager to explore what lies just around the next corner. Before he returns to the United States after nearly two decades on British soil, Bryson decides to take a farewell jaunt through his adopted homeland. But his plans to neatly traverse the island by foot, bus, and train are soon thwarted.

    Sharon says: "Appallingly badly read"
    "Unless you are from the UK... then boring!"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The book was just completely uninteresting. If you were from England and had some recognition of the places he visited, then I could see it being good.


    What was most disappointing about Bill Bryson’s story?

    It was just boring. I didn't finish it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ron McLarty?

    The narrator was fine, it was the story itself.
