Review: In A Sunburned Country

In A Sunburned Country is one of Bill Bryson's travel books about Australia. With a trip to Australia coming up, I decided to rent the book for the subject matter, and because I was hoping it would be a fun read.

The other books I've read by Bryson have always been funny, and with 40+ hours on an airplane, I figured I'd need a few laughs.

How right I was on all accounts.

The information in the book was accurate, relevant and quite interesting. And best of all, it was laugh-till-tears-streamed-down-my-face funny. Seriously, Shira thought I was suffering from some sort of medical condition, I was laughing so much. What a great antidote to a 13 hour flight.

I just love Bryson's books in general, and this one is no exception. The adventures he gets himself into are just priceless.

I could go on and on about how much I enjoyed this book and what a terrific writer Bryson is. But, I'll spare everyone and just say this was a 10/10 and that you simply must read this book.
