Lol, you don't need to be so apologetic - I'll tell anyone who wants to listen how much better the U.K. is than the U.S., for many of the reasons you've already listed. Not to mention, we just have culture.

I would really love the weather XD.. The moment I stepped out of the airport into cold, rainy weather, I would feel really happy and (sorry for the cliche) alive...

That's just who I am :)

Well then you'd have loved England today. I was out in central London and it was just wet, cold and gloomy.

Ditto where I am, despite the recent sun. Everyone in all my classes was like, "OMG! It's raining!" :shiny: I was like O.o It's just rain. If it was snow, everyone running to the window is normal. But rain...? We live in England for Gods' sakes! :laughing:

The UK by far. =J

Granted, I´ve never been to the US. I´ve never been outside Europe, actually. I´ve grown up in a quite anglomaniacal family... well, my Dad, anyway. My Mom just kinda moves along and enjoys being wherever it´s exciting without being too dangerous.

Then again, the UK has Scotland and England. I find it hard to imagine USA having anything that can match that... as a country, it´s too young; It just haven´t had the time to get any history yet.
UK also has most of my favourite authors - Pratchett, Colfer, Pullman, Scott, Landy, Adams, Buckley-Archer. If I ever went to Ireland, I´d e sure to bring my entire AF collection, just in case I´d meet Eoin Colfer on a random streetcorner. XD

@Multiverse
Ireland isn't in the UK. Only Wales, Scotland, England and the small section Ireland called Northen Ireland. The Republic of Ireland, or Ireland, where Colfer is from and lives. Sorry.

What about Rick Riordan? Have you tried any of his? He's in the US, and his stuff is fantastic, I love Percy Jackson - I would definiatly recomend that as a start off with him. And, of course, the Percy Jackson spin offs and The Red Pyramid.
By Adams, do you mean Douglas Adams? I love him, and it's so cool Eoin took the series over! Shame he died, isn't it?

You guys seem to love all the books I love ♥.. Yes, I agree with that fact that US is simply to young to have very much history (that is, when you compare it to the UK). I think Australia is much the same.

Perhaps this is why I don't like Australia as much as I liked Europe; it is relatively the same situation between Australia/Europe and US/UK - I think I relate on some level.

UK (though I haven't actually been there). I'd love to go to Wales and Ireland mostly; and visit some castles XD. US was ok, particularly NJ, but when I was in NY the people were quite rude and I guess that sort of put me off.

Out of U.S and U.K, I pick Australia. 'Nuff said. :blush:

The Irish brought us Eoin Colfer, but they also brought us my least favourite band. U2. -.- I hate the lead singer, btw. No offense to any U2 fans out there. :)
Thanks to Cat Moon & Raineesun for helping me do this XD

U2 are Northern Irish, Eoin Colfer is Irish (Republic of Ireland). Look, Northern Ireland is in white/beidge. Northern Ireland is part of Britain, under British rule, Northern Ireland has its own goverment.

Oooh, Sorry! X/
I know, I know. It´s a mistake I make all too often. I really have to get the sentence 'Ireland is different from Northern Ireland' tatooed onto my brain.

Oh, I just read the first Percy Jackson! I liked it, but the Americanism in it did annoy me, quite honestly. I guess it´s just in my veins not to be very excited by America.
I´m waiting for the Percy Jackson boxset to be available from the UK Amazon before I get the rest of them, so I won´t be reading the spinoffs before then, either. The Red Pyramid isn´t related to PJ, is it? I suppose I could read that in the meantime.

Yup, that Adams. I love his books, too. ^_^

Anyway, to add onto myh list of British Author Prodigies are Neil Gaiman. On America´s side, they´ve got Daniel Handler. He counts for a lot, you know.

Do read PJ, the series is very good! The red pyramid is like PJ but with egyption gods. Hereos of olympus is a spin off of PJ though.
And yeah, very americanised books but the author is american so give him some credit.

Just to clarify, there are different sections of America, here are the basics:

Mid-Western: The Bread Basket of America. This is the area where the states start to get a bit bigger and the houses more suburban. Expect your average family here, husband, wife, and two kids. WARNING: ALL homes like these have a dirty little secret, be cautious.

Western: This is where tourism thrives. People flock to this area hoping for either big bucks, entertainment, or fame. Expect a population of both laid back people and high class.

Louisiana: One of the two anomilies to the American People Map. This place seems to be consistently hit with natural disasters, and is also known for their seafood and bayous. Watch for gators.

Northeast: This is what I like to call the 'Crowded Elevator', where a bunch of people cram together in a small place. You can find just about anyone here, clowns, shady Chinese salespeople, Munchkins, illegal immigrants, you name it, they're here.

South East (minus Florida): This area is mainly filled with stubborn hicks, lots of them. You can literally find every predjudice known to man here, but they do make the best pork around, so you tend to come to a conflict of intrest. There is also the great Civil War sites that you can visit.

Florida: Florida is actually a Western state, just unfortunately placed.

Guess where I'm from!
