DelightfulBy TimRob101 from Surrey , 15 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]A fantastic book now put together in a great TV series.
Bryson in superbly funny in his observations of all the idiosyncrasies of the UK, giving it the credit that us Brits are far to modest to come out and say.
Well worth a watch and a good, informative laugh.

'Bill Bryson: Notes From A Small Island'By a customer from Ilkley , 21 Feb 2009Not as good as the book - I thought it was going to be the same but in fact it was just like a travel documentary. A bit disappointing as the book is brilliant.
Read the BookBy a customer from Westcliff-on-Sea , 23 Dec 2008I loved the book, but the film/series was disappointing in comparison. If you don't know the book, however, it's probably quite enjoyable.
Notes from a small IslandBy a customer from Beverley , 23 Nov 2008A lovely humourus look at us from an outsider who fell in love with our country. I laughed out loud at many parts and recommend this to all as long as you don,t mind someone making gentle fun of us, but in the nicest way.
Not as good as his booksBy a customer from Leigh , 21 Oct 2008I expected too much from this I think. I adore Bill's books but this was a bit dull.
Actually I'm being generous there because his books are so damn funny but this wasn't a patch on them.
loveable BillBy a customer from Swansea , 14 Sep 2008For those who read everything that Bill Bryson writes, this series based on his book will be a diappointment. It is neither one thing or another, falling short of some of the most humorous parts of his book and visiting the most inevitable places. He comes over as warm and cuddly but with no bite - it is almost as if he doesn't want to offend anyone. Americans may enjoy it as it is very pc.
