The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America by Bill Bryson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Bryson returns to the mid-western states where he grew up and experienced many family vacations on a shoe-string budget. Looking for the quintessential American town, so far in the book he is disappointed and his tone is on the bitter side. Bryson does find a few intriguing places and spaces that cause him to wander in wonder. His life in the UK however is the place where he belongs as he never seems to end the sarcastic comments and critiques of the places he visits all over the American mid-west.
