"Bryson's cheery Australian tale should entertain even the most listless driver. His strength lies in his ability to incorporate astounding facts about the country with nutty personal anecdotes." (Publishers Weekly)
Perfect for a long road trip. Funny, informational, and the descriptions made the story come alive. Loved Bill reading his story. We feel like we travelled to Australia ourselves after hearing the story!
Bill Bryson has a way about him. His use of metaphors and adjectives is impressive and vivid. As someone who deeply loved Australia I feel he captured it beautifully. I cannot wait to hear more of his adventures. He has adopted a fan.
Bill Bryson makes me laugh out loud! His accounts of his adventures make me want to visit this land all the more. He cleverly intertwines history, culture and geography. I especially enjoyed his tales of off the beaten track sights.
Love everything about this book! It's my 3rd listen! Makes me feel like I went along for the trip! Winner!
