Things Snowball

By Rich Hall

Rating: 5 stars

This is an excellent collection of shaggy-dog stories, anecdotes, travelogues and annotated letters (okay, just the one letter) penned by Rich Hall. From his recollections of being allowed to work his granddad’s nuclear reactor when he was a kid (just a small mom-and-pop affair) through an anecdote about the invention of the spatula to his fond recollections of his New Zealand tour, Hall’s dry wit and deadpan delivery (even on paper!) make this a joy to read.

The couple of travelogues covering the American West are the only bits of the book which I think might be true. An excellent book, definitely worth reading.
