    1. This isn't really a book, it's more like a long monologue live in a theatre by a comedian. The point is supposedly why Americans (and to a greater degree, Canadians and Australians) are in love with the idea of England. It doesn't do that. Oh the author advances some white-privilege theories and the idea that Americans would really like to have a class structure rather than pretending everyone's equal. But he doesn't try hard enough because what he really wants to do is ramble about growing up r [...]

    2. Let’s begin by explaining what this book is not. It’s not D.H. Lawrence’s 1915 collection of short stories, England, My England. Nor is it the Scottish A.G. Macdonnell’s 1933 classic satire of England called England, Their England. Nor is it George Orwell’s 1941 essay, “England Your England,” the Socialist-turned-conservative’s propaganda effort to bolster the war effort during the Blitz all the while decrying modernity.Instead, it’s a short — less-than-50-minutes-in-the-Audi [...]

    3. When I was in college, I had to write an essay on A Room With A View. My professor, quite rightly, gave me a poor grade because it was admittedly all over the place. I remember he basically told me that not every thought in your head needs to be written down. Now I can say this, not every thought you have needs to be self-published on . Oh how I wish this author had taken a class with professor Shea. If this is meant to be amusing it fails astoundingly, although you can see where he is trying (t [...]

    4. What would have made England My England better?The author of this piece did not make it clear what the work is supposed to be. Was it a parody of scholastic works? If so, it missed the mark completely. Was it actually supposed to be an analysis of American-based Anglophilia? If so, it missed the mark completely. Quite frankly, it was a thinly-veiled excuse to insult anyone that doesn't fit the author's narrow view of a "proper" Anglophile.What could Mark Dery have done to make this a more enjoya [...]

    5. Not sure how I ended up with this in my Audible library, but it's snobbish, pretentious, and irritating. I hope I didn't pay money for it. Sometimes I get books for free or on a really good deal. With luck, this was one of those. Even if it was free, it was a waste of my time.

    6. This seemed to be a bit schizophrenic, one part personal anecdotes and other psuedo-scholarly discussion. I wish the author would have made a better mix of these two because they seemed to make the story very disjointed and hard to follow.I admit to being an Anglophile so I looked forward to reading about why so many Americans are all a flutter over anything British. I was taken aback by the tone of his discussion and felt like he was dressing Anglophiles as a group down. While I do agree that m [...]

    7. I don't really feel like much was explained, here. There was perhaps a vague impression that Anglophilia is a sort of white racial identity, or nostalgia for a clearer class structure, but a lot of it really focused on some books the author had as a kid, that turned out to be pretty English in character, and his experience growing up in the 1970s sprinkled with some Britishisms here and there. I guess there was a point in there, and it WAS very short, so at least it didn't waste my time overmuch [...]

    8. He says a lot in a very short book, penetrating to cultural currents and penetrating insights that prevail beyond his initial topic. I especially liked his take on the influence that the books of our childhood have on us in later life

    9. I picked this up on Audible, noting the reference to Downton Abbey and the promise of explaining Anglophilia.Wow. I got totally lost in all the verbiage. I honestly can't relay one point that was made; they were all lost to me in the adjectives and winding descriptions. Just not my style.

    10. This was free, I hope? "Give us that veil of illusions, Anglophiles seem to be saying. Better that fairytale feudalism of Kate and William than the bright smiling rapacity of Mitt Romney and the incomparable vulgarity of Donald Trump."*essay gains a star for entertaining statement of obvious*"Isn't 'community' what so many recent Brit-based myths are really selling? Whether it's the race-based tribalism of Lord of the Rings "*essay loses star for addressing something the author obviously knows n [...]

    11. England My England centres on an Anglo-Proustian evocation of the writer’s exposure to a kind of Englishness in the shape of The Children’s Wonder Book of Colour, an encyclopaedia aimed at the kids of middle-class parents that came out after the War. It seems to have been a strangely Arthur Ransome-esque potpourri (Dery compares it to his beloved Wunderkammerer) of mildly racist colonialist propaganda, Boy’s Own Paper stories, ornithology, flower pressing and other ‘suitable’ interests [...]

    12. In this short but rambling essay on anglophilia, Dery attempts to explain why so many Americans living in this great land of opportunity are obsessed with life upon the windswept rock of England. While he takes a few looks at society at large for examples of people who wish to be fabulously British, the focus is on his own story. Is growing up on English literature what makes us long for this tiny country that somehow remains a world power? Maybe it's separation anxiety, and we're still crying o [...]

    13. A very short, easy-to-read theory on why (some) Americans love the Brits.Being neither American nor British (I'm Aussie) I guess this book should've held little interest for me; but I am a foreigner who loves me a good bit-o-Britain so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Note: I'm such an Anglophile I fled my sunburnt homeland as soon as I was legal, and spent the best part of the next decade in my adopted home of not-so-sunny Somerset. In other words, there was actually more than a bit of interest o [...]

    14. Although this is fairly short and did seem to quote other people just as often as giving the author's own perspective, it did make me think more about my own anglophilia than I usually do. However since this is based on a US mindset and of American anglophiles I couldn't quite connect with it all. My favourite point Mark Dery made was the wonder of if anglophilia is just type of separation anxiety from the motherland, which somewhat makes more sense for the USA, as Canada still has some ties to [...]

    15. 2.5 starsThis was an interesting selection for one of Audible's free Valentine's day offerings, since rather than romantic love it discusses the love of a culture. As an anglophile myself, I expected to enjoy this, but it stayed a bit too surface level, though I guess that's to be expected from a Kindle Short.

    16. I had hopes that this essay would lean a little more toward the academic. It was a very accessible and short look at our fascination with the England that exists in our imaginations. Reading this on a rainy day with a cup of tea was a lovely few minutes of my day.

    17. Utterly dull beyond all words. The writer could not have used a more verbose way of attempting to get his point across if he had just written words out on a page. Would not even finish it. Utterly horrible.

    18. I didn't get it. I probably should have known that even though this was free, it would be a waste of time when I had to google Anglophile. Basically this was just an essay about why the author is obsessed with England. Again, it was free and short.

    19. This was a rambling mess of an audiobook. I still don't quite know what the point of it was, but it didn't "explain" Anglophilia to me. Maybe if I read the actual essay, I could have followed it. Unfortunately, I couldn't even finish it.

    20. Well that was a ho-hum 38 minutes of my life. The promise of our love of Downton Abbey explored just didn't happen and in the end, it was a lot of rambling about nothing. Watch Downton, love the Queen and ignore the book.

    21. I picked this up free from Audible, and I now wish I had my 45 minutes back. What pointless drivel! He just rambled on and on and on about absolutely nothing.

    22. As an Australian, I am comfortable and feel more at home with English culture than American culture. The author explored the English with curiosity, whereas I found the subject more nostalgic

    23. Listened to the audiobook while exercising. Maybe not the most exciting book, but it did have some interesting points about why Americans like England so much.

    24. I was expecting "Anglophilia Explained" - I didn't get it. What I did get out of it was one man's explanation of his childhood anglophilia - not really interesting at all.

    25. I kind of lost interest halfway through, but it's not the book's fault. It's well written, I'm just not as interested about anglophilia as I originally thought I was.
