Boring Book, Lackluster Read
on 12 February 2018
I didn't enjoy this book. The subject was dull and the narrative was lacklustre. It's a shame, as I really enjoyed Bryson's superb The History of Everything and it was the driver for me wanting to try more books by him. I wish I hadn't.
I won't give the plot away, but this book features unconnected antidotes of the author's visits to some English towns and cities. By chapter three, you will start to question your original decision to invest time and money into this book.
I'm disappointed with this purchase. It's not interesting, witty or entertaining. It's dull, unimaginative with a boring subject matter. I can't recommend it.
