The Road to Little Dribbling: Adventures of an American in Britain by Bill Bryson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoy Bill Bryson's books. I especially like the way his stories meander while still getting to the point. In this book, Bryson is traveling from southern Britain to northern Britain, somewhat along what he calls "The Bryson Line" - from Bognor Regis on England's south coast, to Cape Wrath on Scotland's north coast. He manages to cover all of Britain's regions, mostly visiting places he didn't visit in his first travelogue around Britain. I enjoyed traveling with him, and once again, was pleased with his penchant for seeking out information about forgotten people, places, and events. There was an air of melancholy throughout the book, as he realized how much the country has changed, and what purely British norms and traditions are being lost. It was also fun to see some of the places that I've been through his eyes.
