"Bitter or Sweet ? I'm not sure !"
I really enjoy Bill Bryson and his sense of observational humour really appeals however, although this was funny at times, because it was a collection of smaller clips I found that I could not get my teeth into it as much. It is worth having in a collection because it is enjoyable but I would not put it high on my list of Bill Bryson must haves. I was expecting it to be like Notes From A Small Island but in this respect I was a little dissappointed.
Brilliant written as usual.
Excellently read as usual.
A joy to listen to as usual.
Do yourself a favour and get this book.
"Great book, well written."
Overall a fantastic buy but for me William Roberts does not have a voice I appreciate listening to hours of.
":) loved it"
Loved the book and I enjoyed the narrator's reading.... If you like Bill Bryson's witty view of life you will love this one
"Great book, terrible narration"
As an avid fan of Bill Bryson, I couldn't wait to download and play this, possibly my favourite book of his. Unfortunately the narrator's voice is so grating and misinterpretive of the content, I cannot listen for more than 10 minutes at a time. It's such a shame. I gave 3 stars for the content, I really love this book, but had to take away for the narration.
As always, Mr Bryson is very entertaining, and he provides a very interesting account of the trials and tribultations of returning to your mother country after years of being an Alien in another land.
"Excellent, once again"
Yes, I'm a big Bill Bryson fan and this selection from his newspaper column is written specifically for we Brits, in order to better understand Americans. As usual, there are many laugh-out-loud moments, enhanced by William Roberts' excellent narration.
"What a legend"
More please in no less than fifteen words; which Bill would in no doubt comment on.
