Wow! Just when I thought I couldn't love Alan Doyle any more than I already do, he up and suprised me. This follow-up book to Where I Belong did not disappoint!

As funny and heartwarming as his first memoir, A Newfoundlander in Canada provides the reader with more glimpses into the artist's life and into the lives of the Canadians he meets while touring the country with Great Big Sea.

Alan Doyle comes across as a kind, friendly, intelligent man whose love for Newfoundland, Canada, and his fellow Canadians is palpable. Part memoir, part travel guide, this book imparts a vision of Canada you'd have a hard time finding anywhere else. Well written and highly entertaining, this book made me smile more than I have in a long while.

I highly recommend the audio book if you can get your hands on it; listening to Alan Doyle's voice tell his tales only adds to the experience. I could listen to him speak forever.

(I'd give this book 6 stars if I could!)
