Summary:

Notes from a Small Island
After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson decided to move his wife and kids back to his homeland of the United States. But not before taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. The result is a hilarious social commentary that conveys the true glory of Britain.

Neither Here nor There
Thirty years after backpacking across Europe, Bill Bryson decides to retrace the journey he undertook in the halcyon days of his youth–carrying with him a bag of maps, old clothes…and a stinging wit honed to razor sharpness by two decades of adult experience.

I’m a Stranger Here Myself
Bill Bryson read “somewhere” that nearly three million Americans believed they had been abducted by aliens–clearly the Americans needed Bill back. So after years raising his family in Britain with his English wife, the brood moves to the United States, and leaves Bill to chronicle the quirkiest aspects of life in America as he reveals his own rules for life.

    even though I enjoyed the books, listening to Bill Bryson is more fun.

    I read a couple of these a few years ago but they’re even funnier narrated with BB hilariously deadpan delivery and sardonic tone. Having spent a lot of time in the UK, Bill’s take on the Brits and their quirks is spot on. Having travelled to many of the same places in Europe,mentioned in Neither here nor there, and having written about some of them myself I was struck by the similarities in our impressions of the various people and places scattered across the continent. As for I’m a stranger here myself, and someone who has lived in the US on and off for the passed 25 years I almost feel as if Bill is echoing my sentiments of the place.
