Bill Bryson’s The Life and the Thunderbolt Kid is one of the best books depicting a nostalgic, vivid, and absolutely hilariousness to grow up in 1950s America. Although the book is a memoir, Bryson knows how to keep readers engaged in the lifestyle, technological changes, and many more during the time. His sense of humor, talent, and the sarcastic view will let you enjoy The Life and the Thunderbolt Kid at the fullest.
Bryson portrays his experiences that he confronted during his childhood; his imaginations, friendship, his silliness, and many more. Moreover, he has cleverly weaved together the relations, people, events, and inventions that changed the face of America, in one single string. Just as his topic mentions Thunderbolt Kid, he has simply used Thunderbolt Kid to present his alter ego who enjoyed the life of 50s America.
The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid book has also covered a few good parts of U.S. history. And being contrary, it also includes few saddening parts like; the threat of nuclear annihilation, Cuban missile crisis, etc in a humorous way. There are plenty of parts where you can’t help but start laughter louder. I must say Bill Bryson is clever enough to divert readers into their flashback childhood while uttering about his own childhood.
So, I would recommend this interesting book full of joy and laughter to everyone. I believe most of you are definitely going to love it. You can download Bill Bryson’s The Life and the Thunderbolt Kid pdf freely from the link mentioned below;
