The funniest and most entertaining book I have ever read,
This review is from: Neither Here, Nor There: Travels in Europe (Paperback)
I was introduced to Bill Bryson many years ago when a friend of mine gave me this book to read. From the first page, I found myself chuckling away. It is honestly the funniest and most entertaining book I have ever read (and I read a lot).
Bill Bryson is an unconventional travel writer, who intertwines his wit and humour into all of his travel tomes.
I would recommend this book to everyone who wants a laugh. It is one of these books I re-read at least twice a year.
My only wish is that Bill Bryson would write more humourous travel books/stories - of late, his writings have become more conservative.

Excellent review. I also re-read many of his travel books. I don't like his word books and science books as I feel they are like reading extracts from an encyclopedia and they seem to lack any flow to them. Like you, I wish he would revert back to travel writing but I believe he has turned 70 years old now and maybe his travel writing days are behind him now.
