Reviews - Bill Bryson: One Summer and The Road to Little Dribbling
One Summer: America 1927 (4*)
The Road to Little Dribbling (4*)
One Summer is an account of a summer when rather a lot happened, much of historical significance. You have to admire Bill Bryson for organising so much material in such a readable and entertaining way, but as an English reader I might have liked less about baseball. As noted previously, it is interesting to compare Bill Bryson with Gervase Phinn. (May 2015)
Key to star ratings: 5* would read over and over again, 4* enjoyed it a lot and would recommend, 3* enjoyable/interesting, 2* didn't enjoy, 1* gave up.
