Travel's In Small Town America,
This review is from: The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America (Paperback)
Being a keen reader of Bill Bryson's books 'The Lost Continent' was one of his books I have probably picked up least often which is such a shame!
In the book Bryson takes a 13,978 mile roadtrip around the North, East, South and West of The United States in his Mother's car.
What I like about the book is that Bryson doesn't just visit and discuss the big cities he is actively looking for his fictional town of Amalgam a town which would be exactly like what he saw in the Films and TV shows of his childhood.
This being one of his earlier books where Bryson was still finding his style does prevent me scoring the book five stars.
That being said being filled with interesting anecdotes and his unique sense of humour I would highly recommend this book.
