2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Bill Bryson I Thought, 28 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Bill Bryson's African Diary (Hardcover)
As I have read all Bryson's books, I was excited to see this little book on my local book shops shelf, but oh what a disappointment I thought it to be. I felt it lacked that wit and sparkle of his other works, and unlike Neither Here nor There and The Lost Continent, I was not transported to these places but felt I was listening to someone reading another diary. I did not think it was Bryson at his best and I have already given the book to a colleague to wait for his opinion
