Bryson, Bill "The Lost Continent"

Bryson, Bill "The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America" - 1989

What more fun can be than going on a trip through the USA with America's most hilarious travel writer. Especially when he sees it after having lived abroad for several years, so with almost foreign eyes. He starts in his hometown Des Moines in Iowa ("where somebody has to come from") and goes from East to West.

As with all his other books, I really loved this one.

I love all of Bill Bryson's books. Find a link to my reviews here.


  1. I like Bill Bryson, but from what I remember...I read him a loooong time ago....I had a problem with his tone after a while, I found him to be disrespectful of, insulting to, the peoples and places he was writing about. I should try again, maybe.

  2. I never had that feeling but if you did, maybe you shouldn't read another of his book. His style is the same all over. Although, have your tried his non-travel books? I love the ones about language just as much.
