YMMV: Bill Bryson

  • Fridge Logic: One of his Notes From a Big Country was partly devoted to examining all the gaping plot holes in The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
  • Newer Than They Think: Australia's Trans-Continental Railway
    • As well as the reach of Australian utilities, geographical knowledge of the place, pretty much the whole country (only independent since 1901).
  • Nightmare Fuel: Many descriptions of Australian wildlife and the travails of outback explorers (though it's all Truth in Television...). Also the descriptions of potential megadisasters in Short History. (Now I've made myself scared...)
