About this deal

C'est auprès de cet homme bourru que Rémi va parcourir la France et apprendre la vie, n'abandonnant jamais son courage et son optimisme. Pressestimmen: "Der Bestseller Bill Bryson bringt es fertig, noch aus einer Werkzeugkiste etwas Komisches zu machen! Cependant, il n’abandonne pas le dessein de restaurer son honneur et celui de la duchesse déchue, au sujet de laquelle courent les rumeurs les plus contradictoires. Notes from a Big Country is not quite a travelogue, but it’s an entertaining look at America through a former expat’s eyes. Depuis qu'on l'a amputée d'une partie d'elle-même et privée de sa famille, elle ne rêve plus que d'une chose : s'affranchir de la tyrannie du tout-puissant Orion, Dieu parmi les dieux.

Psychologue réputée pour son expertise dans les affaires criminelles, Abigaël souffre d'une narcolepsie sévère qui lui fait confondre le rêve avec la réalité.According to the latest "Abstract of the UnitedStates", every year more than 400,00 Americans suffer injuries involving beds,mattresses or pillows. Après avoir passé cinq ans en prison à la suite d'une erreur tragique, Kenna Rowan retourne dans la ville du drame qui a détruit sa vie avec la volonté inébranlable de retrouver sa fille de quatre ans. Le chevalier de Vaumacel, entraîné dans ces conflits, est impliqué dans les pourparlers entre les camps. This was the thought that inspired Bill Bryson to start a journey around the rooms of his own house, an 1851 Norfolk rectory.

Believe it or not, I’ve actually found him to be a little bit whiny in some of the previous books of his that I’ve read, but he’s back at his best again here and to be honest, this was just what I needed at just the time that I needed it. Orpheline, Cecilia Harcourt quitte l’Angleterre et débarque à New York où elle espère retrouver son frère, blessé à la guerre. Bryson’s humor is excellent and he makes even the most mundane exchanges into passages that have me giggling away, to the extent that my husband asks what’s so funny and is, I suspect, now eager to get his hands on one of Bryson’s books. Ses vrais parents, le roi et la reine, envoient chaque année pour son anniversaire des centaines de lanternes dans le ciel, espérant le retour de leur enfant. nouvelles enquêtes de Sherlock Holmes : "Un scandale en Bohême", "La disparition de Lady Frances Carfax", "La ligue des rouquins", "Le rituel des Musgrave", "Le pouce de l'ingénieur", "Flamme d'argent", "Le gentilhomme célibataire", "Le diadème de béryls", "La bande mouchetée", "Une affaire d'identité", "Les Hêtres d'or", "L'escarboucle bleue".There is no real narrative thread in this book as regular Bryson fans will have been accustomed to finding elsewhere: the format is very specific: a series of articles, written from America, for British readers. I was on a flight from Bangalore to Bombay when I started reading “Notes from a Big Country” and if not all, then at least half the people on the flight must have thought I belong to the loony bin, and only because I could not control my laughter.

I read the book mostly during my breaks at work where I would sit in the corner and chortle away to myself while everyone around me gave me strange looks.
