    eBook Bill Bryson à à Notes from a Big Country PDF/EPUB » Notes from notes mobile, from book, country epub, Notes from pdf, a Big kindle, from a Big pdf, Notes from a Big Country eBookAs an expat about to return to the US this book simply wasn't Weird enough for me It in no way captures my experience of how completely absurd the US feels upon returning after an extended absence Obsessions with skinny white girls named Jessica; the unbelievable noise especially from radio and TV; un ending ads for stuff on sale which exist in other places but when it's in another language I just tune it out; the fact that no one walks anywhere; the enormous bodiesuitting smoking maybe wasn't such a great idea folks; the amount of non food items for sale in a grocery store; the general ignorance and out right disinterest in news from other places; the list goes on I like Bryson's humor but I think I like his earlier work best Fat Girls from Des Moines remains one of my favorite Granta reads
