really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction, uk
Read in April, 2010

A terrific read! It's humourous, observant, funny and well-written, by an author who knows what he's talking about and shows a genuine love for the heritage and the architecture of the little island. Especially liked the observations on English character :)
It occasionally slows down and gets a little repetitive, for example in the parts about the English riviera during low season, but I think that's not enough for me to stop appreciating the book.
You'll enjoy it if you have been to Britain, but also if you haven't, since Bryson's writing is so much fun. It was my first book by this author, but I'll definitely look for other books he published!
