I got about 5 or so (short) chapters into this book on holiday before putting it down and never coming back to it. It wasn't awful, it was just...dull. Having recently read the Tim Moore book 'French Revelations' I think I was looking for more of the same - amusing encounters, interesting information and wry observations on the French, France and the tourist on a bike. In short, I was after Bill Bryson on wheels.
The chapters were short and uninspiring with a quirky summary at the end of each that soon became irritating. The writer apparently is also a children's author and I'm wondering if it was showing.
