Read Down Under Bill Bryson ☆ 5 Read & Download Free read Ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Bill Bryson A CLASSIC FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ONE SUMMER Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door memorable travel literature threatens to break out His previous excursion along the Appalachian Trail resulted in the sublime national bestseller A Walk in the Woods In A Sunburned Country is his report on what he found in an entirely different place Australia the country that doubles as a continent and a place with. 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
