Summary

Eighteen years ago, Joe Bennett left England for a holiday. Now he’s come back. But how is the England of his memory different from the England of the motorway? Identikit high streets, New Labour, chicken tikka - things aren’t what they used to be. But the longer Joe travels, the more he wonders whether things were ever what they used to be. Even a century ago, H. V. Morton, the nation’s most celebrated eulogiser, was In Search of England. Criss-crossing the country with varying degrees of enthusiasm, Joe Bennett establishes himself as one of our most engaging travel writers.

I'm not grumbling...this was brilliant!

Really enjoyable romp through the UK, loved his rich descriptions of the people, places and observations...very clever humour and well narrated, captured the right tone and feelings of certain individuals...must get the printed version.

Actually, must grumble about this book.....

This book is like being stuck in a car with your grumpy grandfather and the doors wont open and its hot. If I wanted to hear someone complain all day I shouldn't have to pay for that. The author is the most depressing person I have read. Nothing but negative and boring commentary about the worlds worst car trip. I want my money back ....

Not worth the money

Dull, boring and needlessly vulgar. I was really looking forward to something clever and entertaining - but I very disappointed.
