    Down Under PDF/EPUB í Paperback down pdf, under pdf, Down Under PDFLovely little adventure a la Bill Bryson No one knows incidentally why Australia's spiders are so extravagantly toxic capturing small insects and injecting them with enough poison to drop a horse would appear to be the most literal case of overkill Still it does mean that everyone gives them lots of space What an absolutely stunning endorsement As with his other traveling books Bill Bryson hip hops his way across a country visiting monuments and interviewing natives We meet quirky characters and Australian wildlife galore from the poisonous snakes to the brutal kookaburra Incidentally did you know that the kookaburra likes to bash its prey until their bones have been pulverized? Apparently its easier to digest that waylovelyHe also has quite a lot to say about Australians They spend half of any conversation

    Down Under PDF/EPUB í Paperback down pdf, under pdf, Down Under PDFI love Bill Bryson Yep it's a full blown one sided bromance Bryson could write a book about the history of the individual rooms within the typical house and I would love it he did and I did So when I discovered he'd written about his experiences while traveling Australia I knew I'd found my next good read In a Sunburned Country takes in the Land Down Under from today traveling all the way back to its earliest historical findings You expect and get a look at modern Australia its UK convict days Sydney and other cities the bush the outback and the plight trials and importance of the aborigines All of the above also comes with a healthy dose of Bryson humor It's self deprecating it's consciously delusional for comedy's sake it's honest and it gives me the chuckles I appreciate that he puts himself in awkward situations and really enjoy his description of scenes in which he is a participating victim Australia has coun

    Down Under PDF/EPUB í Paperback down pdf, under pdf, Down Under PDFBill Bryson never seems to use the same approach to each of his books Is this book going to be snarky Bill? Is this going to be funny Bill? Is this going to be funny yet informative Bill? Is this going to be snarky yet informative Bill? I could go on but my hands would start to cramp up with the unlimited combinationsThis one is reverential informative and mostly self effacing humor Bill Bill loves Australians but he hates the fact that the country is over run with hordes of killer species and there’s a big hot assed desert in the middle of the continentAustralians are lovely people The one’s I’ve known were incredibly friendly and generou

    Down Under PDF/EPUB í Paperback down pdf, under pdf, Down Under PDFI developed a taste for Bill Bryson last year when I read his Short History of Nearly Everything an ambitious attempt to trace the history of life the universe and everything in just 574 pages While many of the scientific discoveries outlined in the book were a little beyond me I thoroughly enjoyed Bryson's descriptions of the larger than life personalities behind the discoveries which really brought the science described t

    Down Under PDF/EPUB í Paperback down pdf, under pdf, Down Under PDFWhatever subject Bill Bryson writes abouthe has the ability to turn it into first class entertainmentThis book was all the enjoyable for meas it brought back memories of the year I spent in Australiaa country I became very fond of With a country like Australiawhich is known as the land down underwith its inverted seasonsunique wild life and history of convict settlementBryson never lacks for materialHe visits the major cities and even travels the Australian outback on the Indian Pacific trainI had contemplated that journeybut didn't quite undertake itHis trademark commentary on each place he visits is delightfulParticularly enjoyed his humorous description of Canberrathe capitalwhere I livedBryson also has a fair bit to sayabout all the deadly creatures that inhabit Australiasuch as the Box Jellyfishsnakes etcI remained blissfully unaware of thosein the pre inte

    Down Under PDF/EPUB í Paperback down pdf, under pdf, Down Under PDFHaving travelled briefly through parts of Queensland and New South Wales several years ago I'd been waiting to catch up with Bryson's book ever since I now wish I'd read it before I travelled or even during the trip itself It's full interesting information and ideas for places to visit and gave me loads of laughs A really good read whether you're planning a trip or just looking to enjoy BB's hilariously entertaining anecdotes I've read a few of his books in the past and I do find him to be an interesting companion as I've travelled with him His books on visits to the UK in particular are great fun even if he pokes fun at some places quite close to my heart I'm not sure how accurate some of his adventures are they seem a bit tuned for laughs to me but that's ok it's what you pick up a book like this for I think I'd recommend this book to anyone thinking ab

    Down Under PDF/EPUB í Paperback down pdf, under pdf, Down Under PDFAs expected this was a mix of fun facts and a companion travel piece Being Australian I’m sure I enjoyed this than the average non Australian reader but I could see that some parts especially the parts apart about politics and cricket could bore a few readers who aren’t already familiar with our peculiar sports and politicians I enjoyed the read and found it fun when injected with Bryson’s humourous anecdotes along the way I also realised how very little I’ve seen of my own ridiculously large country Makes me want to pack up the car and go for a road trip and see something other than the East Coast of Australia and the main cities It’s always a shame wh
