Don;t get a lot of time to read fiction, most of what I read is non-fiction International Relation stuff or history, but if your into that check out Stephen Ambrose, great author

A yes, a great read. Have you read any of Bryson's other stuff? He is at his best with his travel writing (Europe, Australia, America). He is very funny...sort of Dave Barryesque humor.
His History is good, although moreso for its educational value than its humor content.
His linguistics books are good, although pretty dry in places. I mean, it's a dry subject anyway, so...
