What would have made Move Along, Please better?
The book is dull, lacks any real humour and exposes the writers dislikes and prejudices.
It seriously needed a good editor to pick up on this. I'm amazed it found a publisher.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
At 41, the writer seems prematurely middle-aged whilst remarkably untraveled in his own country and lacking in common knowledge. Bill Bryson he is not so expect none of the humour or wry observations. His recollections are mundane and uninteresting; descriptions of places visited vague and littered with random facts that I imagine were gleaned from Wikipedia. I had high hopes for this book but have found it boring. He clearly has negative preconceptions about some people that he would have better kept to himself.
Having just recently listened to Stuart Maconie's excellent travelogue of his journey around the North, I found this a tiresome listen. Sorry.
