"Everything, it seems, is interesting to Bill Bryson. The marvel is that he can make it all interesting to us. Three billion year old fossilized organisms off the western coast; a giant lobster on the side of a highway; empty, forbidding spaces...In a Sunburned Country introduces Australia, a giant, mostly barren continent in the Indian Ocean populated by 18 million people, or, as Bryson points out, less people than are born each year in China. Like the rest of his writing, his new book is informative, funny, and almost impossible to put down."

By far Bill's best! This read was "laugh out loud" at its best. If ever you thought vacationing down under was for you, this is a must-read. Thank you Bill Bryson for bringing to these tough times a megadose of truly feel-good entertainment.
