Notes from a Big Country

By Bill Bryson

Rating: 4 stars

I really enjoyed this collection of columns that Bill Bryson wrote for the Mail on Sunday for several years while he was living in the US. It’s insightful, thought-provoking and, above all, very funny. Bryson provides a great commentary on his native land, always counter-balanced by his wife and children who were experiencing it for the first time. It’s also interesting to see how the trends of the America of a decade ago are slowly reaching the Britain of today.
