Journey Through Britain
En härlig bok för oss anglofiler. Lite kul att läsa den först 20 år efter att han gjorde resan/skrev boken, boken håller fortfarande men man inser samtidigt hur mycket som faktiskt har
förändrats under den tidsperioden. Rekommenderas! Nu går jag vidare med nästa Bryson...
Not a book that should be read in public, for fear of emitting loud snorts * The Times * Laugh-out-loud funny * The Good Book Guide * Splendid... What's enjoyable is that there's as much of Bryson in here as there is of Britain * Sunday Telegraph * Bryson is funny because he is not afraid to give completely of himself * Daily Express * Astute and funny...a tribute to [Britain's] enchantments by an unabashed anglophile. * New York Times *
