... would be the perfect word to describe Neither Here Nor There. After having read A Short History of Nearly Everything, I had high expectations and was very disappointed. I think everybody has their right to share their own opinion about anything, but does a more or less famous author have to be so shortsighted and full of clichees just for the sake of a cheap joke? (though I must admit, sometimes I could not keep from laughing either...) Or does he really believe in all the clichees he writes about? Some of the many things I couldn't quite follow: How could you cry about a $2 entrance fee for a museum and pay some $100 for a hotel room without any further comment? How can one be proud of not knowing anything at all about a country's language or culture (except that one has - seemingly single-handedly - saved it in WWII)? As far as he describes how badly he had been treated as a tourist - In my opinion, he had been treated just as he had deserved to be treated.
I have been to many countries mentioned in the book and almost always had a better time. Summary: If you want a cheap laugh - and not much else - recommendable. If not, not.

This book helps to justify the European prejudice of the dumb and uninformed average American! BB travels through Europe but only to see proof of his many prejudices, mainly of the Germans. As a German reader, I must admit, I could not laugh! And I do not understand why some German publisher would even make the effort of translating and publishing the book for the German market.
Here are some examples of BB's cliches:
Aachen: "In the evening I went looking for a restaurant. This is often a problem in Germany. For one thing, there's a good chance that there will be three guys in lederhosen playing polka music, so you have to look carefully through the windows and question the proprietor closely to make sure that Willi and the Bavarian Boys won't suddenly bound onto a little stage at half-past eight, because there is nothting worse than being just about to tuck into your dinner, a good book propped in front of you, and finding yourself surrounded by ruddy-faced Germans waving beer steins and singing the 'Horst-Wessel-Lied' for all they're worth."
This is so bad! It is just ridiculous to write about it! Everything from Willi and the Bavarian Boys to the polka and the Horst-Wessel-Lied. BB has watched too many American and English movies full of German Nazis and mixed up fact and fiction.
One sentence later: "I went up to six or eight places and studied the menus by the door but they were all full of foods with ominous Germanic names - Schweinensnout mit Spittle und Grit, Ramsintestines und Oder Grosser Stuff, that sort of thing."
Excuse me, Mr. Bryson, but what is that supposed to mean? It certainly isn't German! I don't know if it sounds Germanic, but it does not appear on a German menu.

After reading "Notes from a Big Country",(probably one of the funniest books I've ever read - a must-read for any European who has travelled the US!), I was ecstatic, ready to get my hands on anything Bryson has ever written.
But what a letdown this one was!
It started out okay, I had a few laughs in the beginning, but in the course of his journey, he seems to be getting tired, and, boy,does it show! Just a long list of checking in and out of hotels in different European cities, eating at mediocre restaurants with unfriendly waiters, you hardly learn anything about the places he went to, or the people (well, neither did he apparently...)
Every now and then he leaves the plot to tell some anecdote, that's when his usual humour shows up again, but just for that, you don't have to read the whole book.
And what's that personal revenge thing, he's got going with the Germans and Austrians, and the dark episode in our history!? Yes, it was terrible, and shall never be forgotten, but cool it, man!!
Well, he lives in England, that might explain some of it;-)

Unfortunately this book is not funny. It is not even entertaining. And it is not a travel book at all. It is a contribution to intolerance and prejudice.
I wonder how can be one so superficial, narrow-minded and intolerant! Bill Bryson should think about the difference between a traveller and a tourist. Why do people travel? Probably because they want to experience new cultures and the best way to do it is doing it in an open-minded and sensitive way.
But BB did not. He seemed to hunt for negative things only in the most prejudicing way. And he was on a hunt through Europe! Travelling is about SPENDING TIME instead of rushing from one place to another. Travelling is also about TALKING TO PEOPLE instead of reading books in restaurants and other places.
I hope that Americans visiting Europe are not biased by this intolerant point of view and hopefully enjoy the diversity of Europe.
I also hope that BB stays at home in the future instead of throwing 'Travel books' on the market (isn't there a recent one about Australia - well-timed to the Olympics?)
