Reviews

Warm, funny, thoughtful, sometimes grumpy. An absolute joy.
+ in Country Life:
I snorted with laughter...The Road to Little Dribbling is consistently and unendingly fabulous...I intend on buying a copy for everyone I know.

Fans should expect to chuckle, snort, snigger, grunt, laugh out loud and shake with recognition...a clotted cream and homemade jam scone of a treat. * Sunday Times *
Is it the funniest travel book I've read all year? Of course it is. * Daily Telegraph *
There were moments when I snorted out loud with laughter while reading this book in public...He can be as gloriously silly as ever. * The Times *
Bryson has no equal. He combines the charm and humour of Michael Palin with the cantankerousness of Victor Meldrew and the result is a benign intolerance that makes for a gloriously funny read. * Daily Express *
