Bryson meets chinese torture!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Paddling to Jerusalem: An Aquatic Tour of Our Small Country (Paperback)
A tour of English towns arriving quietly by the back door? Unfortunately this book shares the pace of a draw out canal journey and revels in the physical anguish of rowing it. Although the insights into the places visited and the people met are interesting, they are often too brief and too few. One serious chapter connects the title's Jerusalem to the author's Aaronovitch. If you know Bill Bryson try and persuade him to tour England's canals in a canoe, and but his book instead!
