The Lost Continent: Travels in Small Town America - Bill Bryson Well, I suppose it was entertaining, which is why I didn't rate it lower. For those reviewers who think the only reason people feel a bit defensive is because we are arrogant Americans, well...I'm pretty sure I would be offended for any country that Mr. Bryson writes about. According to him, there is not much to the US that is worth the time it takes to visit it. I'm pretty sure there were only a couple of places that he actually found interesting - the Grand Canyon and Mt. Rushmore. If you are the type to like sarcastic humor, this is a good one for you, because that's all there is to it. He is disdainful of almost every town he comes across, disgusted by nearly all American customs, no matter what area of the country, annoyed by the various accents, and generally scornful about the entire country.The one positive that I can say is that I listened to the audiobook. The narrator was awesome.
