liked it

Granted i have read Bill Bryson novels before...actually, to be precise...one, but i enjoyed this one as well. My only qualm about this is unlike A Walk in the Woods the author who happens to be the main character was without his friend/cohort Stephen Katz. I personally enjoyed the conversations that were held in the previous novel i read. it gave me a sense like i was with both bill & stephen as they ventured out into the world and through the vast trail that makes up the Appalachian trail. I personally would of liked to have seen Mr. Katz in this book as well seeing as how remote and deserted some of the towns that Mr. Bryson visited were. I am sure that all the while through out the train ride, airplane, and car rides he would of been complaining about such things as the vastness of the Outback or how hot it was or something to either the lesser or more severe degree. I am not without compliments in this book seeing as he did encounter some interesting people like the old couple walking along the same touristy trail that he was presently on and the waitresses and bartenders he met during his various hotel check-ins. I would recommend this to anyone curious about the outback or Australia as a country,
