Bryson has a dry but acute sense of humour. He observes and analyses normal people and everyday situations but then sneaks up on the reader and has you laughing out loud at the absurdity of the situation.
The book is basically a tour of certain towns, cities and places in Britain with the routine of poking fun at the people, places, traditions and general culture of our 'wonderful land'.
The book can be slightly tedious in places and you can sometimes think - stop moaning Bryson, but let's be honest we all moan and he makes the complaining fun and natural. The 'make you laugh out loud' content makes the book well worth reading.
A great and laugh a minute insight into this countries sites and people.
