Bryson brings his unique brand of humour to travel writing as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet and heads for Europe.  Travelling with Stephen Katz--also his wonderful sidekick in A Walk in the Woods--he wanders from Hammerfest in the far north, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia.  As he makes his way round this incredibly varied continent, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before with caustic hilarity.

Listener Opinions

    " Another book by Bill Bryson that I am loving every minute of. For personal reasons, I went directly to Scandinavian chapters and there is no doubt he gets it. I want Bryson's wit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alleycatfan | 6/21/2011

    " More focus on people than placess. Makes it less fun. "

    " Love the style and the vicarious traveling. "

    " Decent book. Makes me want to travel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shraddha | 6/7/2011

    " Its just that travel books get dated. And this book was the awkward kind of dated: like watching Seinfeld or Dilwale Dulhaniya...it reminds you of an era just passed, unlike a Casablanca, whose dated-ness you can appreciate. Loved the bits about his earlier, straight out of college trip. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 6/2/2011

    " I didn't like this as much as others books I have read by Bryson.Much of the book compares his current travel in Europe to a trip he made as a college student. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bambi | 5/25/2011

    " Fun book; love literature that reads like a novel, but also has some factual stuff, esp traveling facts! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 5/22/2011

    " I read this while traveling through Europe. Another laugh out loud Bryson book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam | 5/8/2011

    " A very so-so travelogue. I found myself not liking the author/main character and found his perspective skewed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 5/7/2011

    " Again, a fabulous book by Bill Bryson. He always makes me laugh hysterically. Though I must add, I did not have the same fabulous experience he did in Rome, but then he's not a blonde female. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pequete | 5/5/2011

    " I liked this book a lot. Although at times I felt he was being a bit offensive, I think it was not nearly as bad as in Notes From a Small Island. I laughed out loud many times and I found some of the information truly interesting. "
