Quatrième de couverture

Combined in one block-buster of an omnibus now are Bryson's DOWN UNDER, an account of his memorable walk across Australia, and the irresistibly funny A WALK IN THE WOODS, that tells of his lengthy stroll in the Appalachian mountains of America, with his old friend Stephen Katz.

Bill Bryson traversed the length and breadth of Australia to bring us DOWN UNDER. A household name, synonymous with laugh-out-loud humour, sniggering, and outbursts of chortling, DOWN UNDER is what's commonly known as the perennial classic. In the very same volume is a story of his walk down the longest continuous footpath in the world. The Appalachian Trail stretches along the East Coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine, through some of the most arresting and celebrated landscapes in America - the Smoky Mountains, Shenandoah National Park, the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts and the Great North Woods of Maine.

Read them both, now, together.

HASH(0x93d8f1f8) étoiles sur 5 What can one say about Bill Bryson 4 mars 2009
Par Nancy A. Kelly - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Actually, Bill Bryson has a fault; he doesn't write enough. Reading his works lightens ones life. He manages to critique life's little foibles (and some larger ones, too) and in so doing, brings tears of laughter and gut-wrenching belly laughs all the while educating us in geography. He is a gem of the first quality.

These are narratives for nature lovers and stay-at-home readers alike. They are about all about friendship.
Definitely happy trails! One is Appalacia, one is the Land Down Under, but they are well-paired together!

HASH(0x927c2108) étoiles sur 5 Good value combination 6 septembre 2013
Par Kevin Long - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is an enjoyable read, and a bargain with two books combined. I shared others disappointment with "A Walk in the Woods" (though many loved it), as the mean spirited snark lost it's humor after a while, and I was ultimately disappointed with both the switch to day hikes and how the hikers ended up quitting.

Bryson gets a little too full of himself in "Down Under" (Waltzing Matilda rewrites, salmon cartoon, running away from dogs etc.), but he does retain many interesting historical anecdotes, and the travel itself is well described and easy to read. I don't often read travel books, though I used to somewhat enjoy Palin's travelogues. I'd call his books here a step above those travelogues, and well written enough to be worthy of a place on the bookshelf.

HASH(0x93a496b4) étoiles sur 5 Bill Bryson's "Walkabout" 18 janvier 2013
Par Martha Koelemay - Publié sur

I read anything and everything by Bill Bryson. His particular brand of wit, whether he is writing for humor or for serious information, brightens whatever his subject matter may be and adds to the interest and enjoyment. When he is being funny, he is very, very funny. When he is being serious, he does it with a light touch that makes it go down easily and comfortably. He is a meticulous researcher and brilliant user of his chosen tools--words. I loved "Walkabout."

HASH(0x95e2f1b0) étoiles sur 5 Wonderful reading 18 septembre 2015

Amazing book. I'm a Bryson fan to begin with, but Walkabout combines my favorite two of his travelogues- Australia and the Appalachian Trail. Easy reading and entertaining as ever! Down Under might not be the best to read while you're in Australia as he humorously describes everything that could kill you, but still a great read!
