"Bryson makes you laugh out loud...Down Under is filled with quirky stories'," * Sunday Express * "Bryson makes you laugh out loud...Down Under is filled with quirky stories'," * Sunday Express * "The thing that Bryson most loves about Australia - its "effortlessly dry, direct way of viewing the world" - is, in fact, his own. They're a perfect fit" * The New York Times Book Review * "Bryson is the perfect travelling companion... when it comes to travel's peculiars the man still has no peers" * The Times * "Bill Bryson is a very talented writer and an enormously funny and perceptive one. He is an artist who needs a big canvas. Australia has provided this. He's painted a masterpiece in travel literature" * Globe & Mail Toronto *
