anglophiles, travelers, anyone with a sense of humour
Read in July, 2007
I laughed so much while reading this that I squeaked, gasped, and could hardly breathe, much less speak. Bryson is an American who has lived in England for about many years. He is moving himself and his family back to America, however, and this book is the story of his farewell tour of England, Scotland, and Wales. His affection for the people and the places is unmistakable, and his "outsider's" perspective combined with a wry wit make for entertaining - and hilarious - reading.
Bryson has written numerous other books, and now I want to read them, too!
