The Road to Little Dribbling
More Notes from a Small Island
Fri frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.
Lars Ivarsson, 11 januari 2018
Lättläst, både språkmässigt och rent praktiskt (med relativt korta kapitel indelat i stycken).. Otroligt rolig. Mycket informativ. han är fenomenal att ta reda på egendomligheter och idiosynkrasier i England. Han är inte alltid nådig i sin kritik av engelska egenheter.

Recensioner i media
"Warm, funny, thoughtful, sometimes grumpy. An absolute joy. + in Country Life: I snorted with laughter...The Road to Little Dribbling is consistently and unendingly fabulous...I intend on buying a copy for everyone I know." Clare Balding "Fans should expect to chuckle, snort, snigger, grunt, laugh out loud and shake with recognition...a clotted cream and homemade jam scone of a treat." Sunday Times "Is it the funniest travel book I've read all year? Of course it is." Daily Telegraph "There were moments when I snorted out loud with laughter while reading this book in public...He can be as gloriously silly as ever." The Times "Bryson has no equal. He combines the charm and humour of Michael Palin with the cantankerousness of Victor Meldrew and the result is a benign intolerance that makes for a gloriously funny read." Daily Express
