User Review  - Darleen Mimnaugh - Goodreads

A somewhat dated and not very funny look at Brysons travels in Europe for the second time. This is not one of his best books. Read full review

Review: Neither Here Nor There: Travels in Europe

User Review  - Robert Luebke - Goodreads

This is my fourth book I read by Bill Bryson. Of course he is a satirist and exaggeration is his game. I did live in Europe for three years, so I did find this book enjoyable and still appreciate his humor. Read full review
