The Lost Continent by Bill Bryson Book Summary

“The kind of book Steinbeck might have written if he’d traveled with David Letterman.” —New York magazine

An inspiring and hilarious account of one man’s rediscovery of America and his search for the perfect small town. 

Following an urge to rediscover his youth, Bill Bryson left his native Des Moines, Iowa, in a journey that would take him across 38 states. Lucky for us, he brought a notebook. With a razor wit and a kind heart, Bryson serves up a colorful tale of boredom, kitsch, and beauty when you least expect it. From Times Square to the Mississippi River to Williamsburg, Virginia, Bryson's keen and hilarious search for the perfect American small town is a journey straight into the heart and soul of America.

The Lost Continent (Bill Bryson) Book Reviews

Wow Bryson, who hurt you?I couldn’t make it past the second chapter because of the language Bryson uses about people of size, also known as fat people. Bryson clearly has an extremely hateful and denigrating relationship with fat people, and that makes this book completely unreadable. How would any publisher think this was good writing, even in 2015?.Score: 1/5

Lost Continent.Condescending of most people and places. Repetitive, pseudo intellectual humor. Refers to his Republican neighbor as a cretin twice… what does severe hypothyroidism have to with party affiliation? “At Home” was immensely readable. This was tripe. Can’t believe it’s the same author..Score: 1/5

One for the nightstand.Hilariously entertaining, yet poignant and informative. A wonderful read!.Score: 5/5
