Summary Down Under

review Down Under 100 Bill Bryson Ú 0 review Australia da Sidney a Perth lungo la leggendaria Indian Pacific con i suoi 468 chilometri di estensione Ha guidato nelle città e lungo l. I developed a taste for Bill Bryson last year when I read his Short History of Nearly Everything an ambitious attempt to trace the history of life the universe and everything in just 574 pages While many of the scientific discoveries outlined in the book were a little beyond me I thoroughly enjoyed Bryson s descriptions of the larger than life personalities behind the discoveries which really brought the science described to life So when I found out that he had also written a travelogue of a journey across the country I may soon call home Australia I simply had to read itAustralia for those of you who have never been there is one of the most colourful places on earth It has a history so bizarre that it makes China s seem normal by comparison It has insane expanses of the most arid desert imaginable as well as some of the world s most beautiful beaches where unfortunately you can t swim due to the prevalence of sharks crocs box jellyfish stingrays and murderous rip currents It houses beyond a shadow of a doubt the world s most interesting flora and fauna including twelve foot earthworms and living fossils And you thought kangaroos were exotic Ha And if all that weren t interesting enough the locals are slightly mad They eat meat pies floating in pea soup are crazy about cricket and consider shorts and knee length socks proper attire for middle aged bus drivers In short it s a uniue place and I love it I look forward to moving there in a few months timeBill Bryson also loves Australia and it shows While he likes to remind his readers of the country s amazing collection of deathly animals over and over again and poke fun at the locals and their weird habits his affection for the place shines through in every chapter and it s uite infectious By describing his own travels and those of early settlers explorers and naturalists he provides the reader with an appreciation for how vast and unwelcoming the country is and how utterly uniue He provides background information on events of which few non Australians will have heard such as the fact that a nuclear bomb may have been detonated in the outback without anyone noticing and that an Australian Prime Minister once vanished never to be seen again waxes lyrical on trees and animals so bizarre that you ll want to hop on the first plane to Australia to check them out for yourself again kangaroos are only the beginning explains why you should go and see Ayers Rock even if you ve already seen hundreds of photos of it and intersperses all this useful information with a winning combination of self deprecating humour bizarre anecdotes absurd dialogue and entertaining accounts of encounters with fellow travellers and locals The resulting book is not only completely recognisable to anyone who has visited Australia but hugely appealing to anyone who hasn t I doubt anyone can read this book without wishing to book a flight to Oz immediately afterwardsIf I have any complaint about Down Under it is that there is too little of it While Bryson s writing is entertaining and informative his choice of places to visit and describe seems rather random and limited I wish he had done travelling gone further into the interior of the country and left all traces of luxury behind him for a while so as to emulate the pioneers and explorers whose exploits he relates with such gusto I also think the book would have benefited from slightly rigorous editing as parts of it seem rather hastily written For all its small flaws though Down Under released in the US as In a Sunburned Country is a fascinating read which has whetted my appetite for Bryson travelogues And for a return to Oz but that s another story

review Down Under 100 Bill Bryson Ú 0 review E strade costiere ha camminato nei parchi e navigato su fiumi e tratti di mare ha incontrato nostalgici hippy e vecchie signore strampala. Having travelled briefly through parts of ueensland and New South Wales several years ago I d been waiting to catch up with Bryson s book ever since I now wish I d read it before I travelled or even during the trip itself It s full interesting information and ideas for places to visit and gave me loads of laughs A really good read whether you re planning a trip or just looking to enjoy BB s hilariously entertaining anecdotes I ve read a few of his books in the past and I do find him to be an interesting companion as I ve travelled with him His books on visits to the UK in particular are great fun even if he pokes fun at some places uite close to my heart I m not sure how accurate some of his adventures are they seem a bit tuned for laughs to me but that s ok it s what you pick up a book like this for I think I d recommend this book to anyone thinking about a trip to Oz or readers who just enjoy tales of travel and amusing things that can happen when you re in the hands of a natural raconteur

Lovely little adventure a la Bill Bryson No one knows incidentally why Australia s spiders are so extravagantly toxic capturing small insects and injecting them with enough poison to drop a horse would appear to be the most literal case of overkill Still it does mean that everyone gives them lots of space What an absolutely stunning endorsement As with his other traveling books Bill Bryson hip hops his way across a country visiting monuments and interviewing natives We meet uirky characters and Australian wildlife galore from the poisonous snakes to the brutal kookaburra Incidentally did you know that the kookaburra likes to bash its prey until their bones have been pulverized Apparently its easier to digest that waylovelyHe also has uite a lot to say about Australians They spend half of any conversation insisting that the country s dangers are vastly overrated and that there s nothing to worry about and the other half telling you how six months ago their Uncle Bob was driving to Mudgee when a tiger snake slid out from under the dashboard and bit him on the groin but that it s okay now because he s off the life support machine and they ve discovered he can communicate with eye blinks To be fair Bill Bryson does have plenty of good things to say about Australia As he goes from town to town he describes delicious sounding dishes and has a way with describing the atmosphere such that you feel like you are really there About halfway through the book I did start to get a bit bored this book became a bit samey samey with every town he visited That being said I did enjoy reading this somewhat unusual trek through AustraliaAudiobook CommentsNothing too special was well read if a bit bland in toneinflectionYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
