An enjoyable, light-hearted read. Palin captures the essence of the English mindset in his spectrum of characters from the "down on his heels" Lord of the Manor who buys his suit from a second hand stall to the Postal clerks eating frozen TV dinners in front of the telly for their date night. I couldn't help but wonder if his writing for the screen (big and small) affected the way he wrote this book. It seemed like it would lend itself to a comedy movie along the lines of "A Fish Called Wanda" - which is one of my favorite comedies.

English humour, quick and dry. This is one of the Monty Python guys. He now has a great travel series on TV.
