Bill Bryson Does Not Always Equal Snark ...

... but it's a rare occurrance as all too often his attempts at humor fall into that mean-spirited vein.

As Darwin points out in a well put post. My comments? In his comments box. Along with the title of the one nonsnarky book of Bryson's I've read. Which was excellent. Go and read.

  1. I regret that so much travel writing is simply a series of patronizing put-downs. Bill Bryson's colonialist attitude about people whom he so wishes he could dismiss as "the natives" is typical. And he's good; he doesn't need to write sophomoric drivel.
