Rezension bezieht sich auf: Notes From A Small Island (Taschenbuch)
This was the first book by Bill Bryson that I read and I just couldn't put it down. It is extremely funny, though one should not think of it as a travel book. Use it as a travel guide and you'll be lost. As always Bryson writes from the pint of view of an American who has lived for many years on the "Small Island". Before he, his wife (who's British, by the way) and their kids leave England to setlle in the US he tries to capture impressions from all over the country, starting out in France. On his travels throughout Britain Bryson views the country and the people throught the eyes of an American tourist as well as somebody who knows country a n d people. He also recalls his first trip to the British Isles while still in his teens. In short: It is a book which everybody will love, apart frm the British, maybe. But then again: Bryson can't be taken too seriously...
