The book didn't really turn out to be something that I was expecting. But, don't get me wrong, I am a Bill Bryson fan, I like the way he presents facts in his natural humour. The book is undoubtedly funny, but other than that I must say that I didn't really learn much from it nor was the reading experience so profound like his other books. It was recommend to me by a friend of mine who is an American and I think the book won't relate that well with someone is not connected to America in any way. Throughout the book, I felt like it was speaking about something to an audience who already know a lot about it.
The first half of the book is interesting and funny. I remember laughing loud at night quite often. But as you progress through the second half, the narration becomes a bit boring and it goes on without any variation. I mean nothing really happens in the second half. Things would occasionally get funny, but that is the only good part. Also, I feel like this book won't be appealing for young audience.
