Laugh out loud funny, captivating prose, a book with a beating heart
A mild suspicion that there's a little embellishment to some of the stories (*)
A great combination of humour, sightseeing, social commentary and invective
Not enough on the western states (*)
The beauty of the valley shining through its harsh reality
None (*)
Witty writing, interesting to find out more about Moldova
Over the top at times (*)
Humour and anecdotes
Uninformative, hasn't dated well, skips Cornwall (*)
similar by Genre (Travel writing)
informative, well reported historical facts and interesting encounters with locals
too much personal life of the journalist in the book (not inherent to the context) (*)
Fun trip with an engaging writer; food; cycling; travel
None (*)
Funny, well-written, surprisingly original
The author is a bit annoying to begin with (*)
a good read, highly engaging
not a typical account of history (*)
Interesting, personal insights, non-judgemental
None - unless you pay the list price, which might feel a little steep. (*)
Some amazingly different places to stay
Some you would have to pay me to stay in! (*)
It's Bill Bryson, hilarious, excellently written, short stories
Some parts repeated from other books, can be irritating! (*)
At least it doesn't weigh much
Superficial and silly. Poorly structured and annoying (*)
