A walk in the Woods
As always, Bill Bryson is wonderfully funny and interesting at the same time. Following his journey from packing and preparing - through to the experience of walking in the woods with his slow but loyal companion, it is packed full of observation and wit. It is Brysonesque. If you're a fan - you'll love it.
One for the road.
This takes all the energy out of having to walk anywhere yourself.....but you really have to see Bill Bryson on TV before you realise just how hard this nust have been for him.
Its not going to win any awards for excitement and thrills but its the sort of track to put on when setting out in the car for a couple of hours. The lazy naration makes driving a relaxing affair and the readers tone is calm and monotone but easy to listen to. I listen to many audio books whilst driving and this is definately one of the better ones as its more of a tale. Most of his other books are more short stories which as he complains most of the time can be a bit repeatative.
Best book I have read in ages.....Bill Bryson is the funniest travel writer I have read. I have read this book time and time again and it still makes me laugh. Would love to meet the guy. Enjoy.
