The Road to Little Dribbling - Bill Bryson

20 years after touring the British Isles on Notes from a Small Island, Bill Bryson packs his bags and heads to some places he visited before and some new places.  I guess I haven't really paid attention in other books he has written, but I didn't realize that he married an English woman and lives in the UK on a full time basis.  Therefore many of his observations have been honed after decades of immersion in the ways of the English.

He is a witty and intelligent writer and gives a lot of often interesting background on the places he visits, it felt like going on day trips with your entertaining older uncle. 4/5
