Why I recommend this — 6 years ago
Bill Bryson provides witty commentary and stories about his experience growing up in the 1950s. It was a glimpse back in time when things appeared to be simplier, slower, and easier . . . I think my parents would really like this book – it’s the kind of thing they could get really nostalgic over.
While I liked it and would recommend this to any Bill Bryson fan as it does provide some background into characters like Katz . . . I didn’t like it quite as much as “Neither Here Nor There” or “A Walk in the Woods”. However, it was a good, entertaining, and informative read.
