Publisher Description

Bill Bryson’s first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before.

Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

Neither here nor there

I laughed so much whilst reading this book while traveling to and from work - I'm sure one poor girl thought I was having an epileptic fit while sitting next to me - I swear she didn't need to get off at kwinana - just did in case I collapsed - an absolute must read if you want to laugh heartily!!!

Laugh?

Everyone kept telling me how much they laugh in Bill's books. I don't understand. I snickered but laugh hysterically I didn't. I liked the way it wasn't a romance with Europe. It felt like a travel guide written as a story. Real travel tips! I enjoyed this but I didn't see the humour.
