Nine year old Andy takes his first solo trip away from home to visit his grandparents for Christmas, 1943.
And here it is, another masterfully written travelogue of Mr. Bryson’s journey’s through the British countryside, more that two decades after his first book on the subject. Informative, intelligent, and wickedly funny, The Road to Little Dribbling is a delightfully educational stroll through the tasty bits Her Majesty’s Kingdom. (I cannot adequately express to you how proud I am of that last sentence.)
What a great read! This is the story of A.J. Fikry, the owner of Island Books, a quaint little bookstore on Alice Island who, after losing his wife, begins a downhill journey into self loathing and depression, only to be saved by a beautiful young lady with whom he has one important thing in common…books. I’m not going to fully admit this on the internet, but I may have cried a bit at the end.
