*** The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson

The Road to Little Dribbling: Adventures of an American in Britain is an idiosyncratic journey through Great Britain — but the journey is just an excuse to talk about the author’s beloved country of adoption. His musings on the delightful ways of the Brits, the exquisite landscapes, and the right history of the place are most enjoyable. He also inserts many rants about subjects as varied as fast-food restaurants employees, dismal urban planning, poor spelling, and the general boorishness of the hoi polloi — some rants are funny but others go on a little too long, or repeat themselves a bit too much. I preferred the softer bits.
