Publisher's Summary

Bill Bryson's first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here Nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student 20 years before.

Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant, window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn or disputing his hotel bill in Copenhagen, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture, and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

    "A dissapointment after other Bryson's tales"

    Having listened to A Walk in the Woods and having read Notes from a Small Island I was really looking forward to Bryson's account on his travels in Europe. And... I was hugely disappointed. Not only by the narration but by the book itself finding it angry and arrogant. While Bryson is for sure a great author he must have written it when he was in a particularly upset mood, there seem to be just a few places that he actually liked while traveling around Europe. He should also leave the reading to someone else, nothing spoils the seldom occurring funny tale than a flat voice.

    "A picture painted"

    You certainly get an excellent portrait of the diversity of Europe and its major cities. I really like Bill Bryson's narrative style and he brings out the humour so well in his laconic way.
