I have, and enjoyed them all.
No, because I heard his others first.
It was fine, but I do prefer the author's.
Pretty much all of it.
It was painfully obvious that Mr. Bryson was playing up to the pre-conceived notions of his British audience. Throughout the commentary Americans were damned if they did something, or damned if they didn't. There was no pleasing Mr. Bryson. I paid my money, so I finished the book. But it was a chore. Mr. Bryson and I are both lucky that this was not the first of his works that I have read or listen to. If it had, I would not have taken a chance on more. My first was The Home. Amazing! I have listened to or read all of the others, including his most recent about the summer of 1927. Excellent. I look forward to his next release.This brings me to my suggestion to Audible: Delete this book from your list. I purchased it on the strength of his other works. You, therefore, gained revenue from just one book. If someone buys this one first and is turned off to Mr. Bryson, who comes off as the world-class pompous prig, Audible could potentially lose the revenue from the six other works that I have enjoyed.I'll quote Mrs. Bryson to capsulize my synopsis of this book: "Bitch,bitch,bitch!"
