Having read Michael's first book, I began reading his blog (called, unsurprisingly, postcardsfromacrossthepond.com) and looked forward to the release of this second book.
Michael's writing has a gentle humour that pokes fun at all things British but in a way that shows how fond he is of his adopted country. This second book also has chapters about his travels in various parts of Britain as well as visiting Europe and the US, and I particularly enjoyed those. As it happens, I've been to several of the same places that he has, and laughed as I recognised cultures and incidents. My absolute favourite chapters, however, were the one about the Imperial Toilet, and the quiz about Britain. You'll have to read the book to find out more.
It's not all humour and wry observation, and some chapters are slightly melancholy and, at times, touching (the visit to Poland; the last chapter), but the overall feel of the book is entertaining and humorous, and would make an excellent holiday read. The 'chapters' are very short - a page or three - so it's easy to dip in and out of. The style is conversational and you come away smiling to yourself about this or that anecdote.
All in all, a good read, and recommended.
