Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neither Here, Nor There: Travels in Europe (Kindle Edition)
I like the writings of Bill Bryson, his style is relaxed and he can be described as a good read. However, this book really is "neither here nor there". He retraces the European journey of some thirty years ago that he made with a rather unsavoury college friend, who, from time to time, re-surfaces as he recalls past events - or more realistically non- events.
The book is written with good humour as he appears to stagger from travel hiccup to minor crisis, but in the end his role as an innocent abroad became tedious. (Perhaps he should have treated the foreign beer with a little more respect.)
I regret that I finished the book with some relief, my only thought as I put it down was: Is Bryson really such a klutz.?
