NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND: An Affectionate Look at Great Britian—Bill Bryson—His love for Great Britain, and the inhabitants, as portrayed herein helps solidify his stature as a “beloved” “British institution”. Bryson calls them as he sees them as he travels around the island…telling what he likes, and what he doesn’t within the landscape; mostly the negatives are architectural, buildings placed (or looking) terribly inappropriately for his vision of Britain or, how they look in general. Following completion of this book he and family moved to the U.S.; to return a few years later to his beloved islands. Wonderful, delightful, humorous. And typically Bryson.
