Book reviews of novels by Jon Stewart and Bill Bryson
Book reviews from December 1999
17 essays/short stories by Jon Stewart. Many of them involves real persons, for example; The Devil and Bill Gates, the unknown correspondence between Princess Diana and Mother Teresa, Adolf Hitler appearing on Larry Kings' show and the lost notebook of Leonardo da Vinci. Many of these stories will make you laugh out loud, they are so twisted!
If you want to get peoples attention, read this book on the subway, and when you starts chuckling, people will look in your direction and spot the excellent title of the book and definitely make the wrong conclusions.
Jon Stewart has been seen in the films Big Daddy, Playing by Heart and The Faculty. He has appeared in different tv-shows, and been the host for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Highly amusing. When I was stranded at an airport in Oslo waiting for a delayed plane, this book was a lifesaver. Bill Bryson in an American journalist that has been living in UK for many years. When he and his family decided to move to USA, he made a last journey around Britain, and scribbled down this book about the journey. The book is really funny and is loaded with comments about life in general and Britain and British people in particular. Brysons' slightly cynical view on things is really amusing, and he manages to find those little details that we all think about. Since the book contains of many small stories, it is ideal to bring on your busride to/from work. I shall now dig into "Notes from a Big country".
