In a Sunburned Country
May 23, 2007
This was a bit disappointing considering it being a rendition of a travelogue -- my favorite genre -- of my most favorite continent ever. Bryson, generally extremely adept at mixing humorous personal narrative with informative and insightful commentary on the subject of his travels, just didn't seem to appreciate Australia enough. Or perhaps Bryson's white, overweight, middle-aged stature was just not up for the job. More damaging was his superficial treatment of race relations concerning Australia's original Maori people. It sort of left a sour note. This volume is also not as laugh-out-loud funny as some of Bryson's earlier work.
