4.0 von 5 Sternen England, here I come
This is NOT a book by Bill Bryson and thus, of course, it lacks his characteristic wit. If this is what the reader is looking for, then he or she will be disappointed.

This book consists of lots of short pieces by many different authors. Yes, some of them seem a little uninspired but most of them put a big fat smile on my face. The authors share their very...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Give it a miss
The book is **edited** by Bill Bryson. The guest authors have nothing much to say. Mostly you have the feeling they've been asked to write a piece about England and knock something off between their cornflakes and the toast. Not once have I been inspired or reminded of some aspect of England which I have forgotten about in my exile.

I'm about half way through and ready to toss it in the bin.

I had hoped for something better, Bill!

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Icons of England (Taschenbuch)
This is NOT a book by Bill Bryson and thus, of course, it lacks his characteristic wit. If this is what the reader is looking for, then he or she will be disappointed.

This book consists of lots of short pieces by many different authors. Yes, some of them seem a little uninspired but most of them put a big fat smile on my face. The authors share their very person impressions about (more or less) quintessentially English locations, experiences and objects. Most pieces were full of genuine love for England. Of course, everybody has their very own Icons Of England and might not be able to relate to those presented in this book. I can and I would definitely recommend this book both to English expats and to all anglophiles.

4 out of 5 - one star off for the less impressive pieces.
