**Mid-book review** Here's a rare combination - love the writing but the writer comes off as a first-class a**hole. Is it because I'm getting older? I loved Bryson about ten years ago. In this book anyway, Bryson writes awful, snotty comments about people who aren't just like him. Once in a while he will admit as much - which is the reason I'm sticking with the book.

**Now I've finished the book - Bryson mellows a bit toward the end and seems a bit less awful. Perhaps he made up a bit of the snottiness to create dramatic tension? Entertaining enough to carry through a bleak winter week.
