As much as I am enjoying Bryson's books, this one was not as humorous (to me) as Walk in the Woods (I've got more of his travelogues to plow through, so that's something to keep in mind this early in the game). I felt as though, with this early book of his, some passages were rushed just so Bryson could say he'd he'd traversed the entire U.S. in just 300 pages. And as funny as it is to hear Bryson rip this country's rednecks and retards a new one, it got a little repetitive in this book. My favorite laugh-out-loud moments came when he was discussing how irritable his stomach could be on the trip. All in all, it was a fun read but I'm holding out for more (better) Bryson ahead.
