Like many of his generation, Bill Bryson backpacked across Europe in the early seventies -- in search of enlightenment, beer, and women. Twenty years later he decided to retrace the journey he undertook in the halcyon days of his youth. The result is Neither Here Nor There, an affectionate and riotously funny pilgrimage from the frozen wastes of Scandinavia to the chaotic tumult of Istanbul, with stops along the way in Europe's most diverting and historic locales.

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. 전체 리뷰 읽기

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. 전체 리뷰 읽기
