Book Description

6 Oct 2011 BBC Audiobooks
On 10 CD's. After ten years in England, expatriate American Bill Bryson was gripped by an urge to return to the land of his youth. Borrowing his mother's old Chevrolet, Bryson travelled 13,978 miles through thirty-eight states, seeing pretty much what he wanted to see, and a good deal that he didn't. He visited Mark Twain's birthplace and the place where Roosevelt died. He glimpsed the Grand Canyon through a thick fog and failed to find the giant Californian Sequoia you can drive through. At once a savagely funny portrait of contemporary America and a poignant memoir of lost youth, 'The Lost Continent' is a comic masterpiece.

Shame Bill Bryson couldn't have narrated, as he has a much nicer voice. However still enjoyed it and would recommend.

The book is good enough but to be driving along listening to the excellent reading of this book is not to be missed! So funny and what an insight into America. Feels as if you have been there!
