  • "I Miss Her"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Now that the book is over, I miss Cheryl Strayed. I loved having her in my life for 13 hours. She is so honest. She shares her dirty laundry and the good times too for the world to judge. I have a ton of respect for her. I was so impressed with every aspect of this book. I laughed and cried and gasped from shock.

    Not everyone will love this book. It's very raw and without the fluff and floweryness of something like "Eat, Pray, Love."

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story

    Too often, books written based on a true story include too much hyperbole in turning the main character into a hero that did nothing wrong. This story is raw, and honest, and believable, and really well told.

    The best part about this story is that it's true. No really, it's true. As you join Simpson in this tale, you'll find yourself saying "no way," but wow, it really happened.

    The end of this story wrapped it up so well for me. I won't spoil anything in case you don't already know what happens, but I'll say, that any questions I had were answered by the end.

    Whether you are a skier, a hiker, a mountaineer, or just love a great story about human strength and endurance, you'll love this story.

    Joe Simpson, with just his partner, Simon Yates, tackled the unclimbed West Face of the remote 21,000-foot Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes in June of 1995. But before they reached the summit, disaster struck. A few days later, Simon staggered into Base Camp, exhausted and frostbitten, to tell their non-climbing companion that Joe was dead. For three days he wrestled with guilt as they prepared to return home. Then a cry in the night took them out with torches, where they found Joe, badly injured.

    Story

    I've followed David Sedaris for years and seen him speak twice. Before this book, his recent material included a lot of parables starring animals. They were not to my taste, I was disappointed that his work was heading in that direction. I'm so happy he is back. This book is filled with new yet classic Sedaris material with stories of his travels, his childhood, and his family. This book is a little darker than his past works, it feels a little more raw, but that doesn't make it any less great. I enjoyed this book like getting back in touch with an old friend.

  • Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa

    "A Stranger Alone in a Strange Land"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Audible had a tall order for this narrator: A Scotsman who can realistically inhabit the mind of a an 18th century explorer who is virtually the first “white man” to explore inland Africa, on foot and canoe with a couple of companions, and soon, alone, encountering the roots of the slave trade—and its moral consequences. He also barely survived.

    I am in awe of Steven Brand’s performance and interpretation, as well as the tremendous care he took with all the African languages and antiquated English he was given in the text.

    "Travels" inspired the imaginations of audiences since its first publication in 1799 . Writers like Wordsworth, Melville, Conrad, Hemingway, and T. Coreghessan Boyle have all acknowledged the influence of Park’s diary on their work.

  • 36 Views of Mount Fuji: On Finding Myself in Japan

    "Finding Beauty in Industrialized Japan"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    After a life-long fascination with Japan, Cathy Davidson went to Osaka to teach English at a women's college. What she saw was industrialized, dingy: ugly. It wasn’t what she'd expected.

    She had a disastrous first day when she took a public physical exam with her students: the tiny medical gown didn’t fit, she made multiple cultural errors, and she had to carry a sample of urine that was blue (because of UTI medications) in front of everyone.

    For the rest of the semester, her students were convinced that North Americans have blue pee.

    Davidson was told by her host that "the Japanese have a great appreciation for beauty, and no appreciation for ugly." In her time spent there, she too grows to find the beauty even among the warehouses. “Wabi-sabi” seeps in: that beauty lies in the irregularity and impermanence.

    This book is delightful, it has a lot of humor and appreciation for Japanese culture. You can tell Davidson fell in love with her adopted country.

  • A Carafe of Red

    "On the Road Exploring Wine History"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Asher takes the reader on a spectacular history-road-trip of wine in France, Spain, Italy, California— going back ages. This is not a "where-this-wine-comes-from-blah-blah" kind of book— no, there are all sorts of dirty politics and criminal activities.

    I hope the author was enjoying a glass while he wrote this book.

  • A Vineyard in My Glass

    "Warning: You Will be Extremely Jealous"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Gerald Asher is a redoubtable British "wine personality" who has the enviable career of traveling to exotic countries, drinking the best they have to offer, and then writing about it.

    A Vineyard in My Glass is the dashing memoir of Asher's vineyard apprenticeship in Europe when he was a young man, plus lots of local history about all the places he visited.

    It was enjoyable to listen to and, sent me to the cupboard for a glass of wine.

    I listened to this book on a trip through Avignon and Paris and it was wonderful. What an addition to our travels by TGV south from Paris. The reader was a delight and more than up to the challenges of the french language and all the culinary terms. Julia's take on the world a breath of fresh air. I was sorry when the book came to and end. However, to compensate I have pulled out my dog-eared copies of "mastering the art" and jumped back into cooking a la Julia! Brava Audible!

    The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America - majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way - and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

    Reunited in love after 35 years and suffering from a serious case of pre-retirement wanderlust, Lynne and Tim Martin made a life-altering decision: They sold their house and possessions and hit the road to live internationally full-time. Now tethered to nothing but their suitcases, each other, and their next exotic location, they've never looked back. From sky-high pyramids in Mexico to monkeys in Marrakech, this delightful, inspiring memoir is a romantic tale of derring-do for grown-ups and a road map for anyone who dreams of turning the idea of life abroad into a reality.

    An Experience Definitely Worth Allegedly Having is a collection of essays on travel selected by Edith Zimmerman, the founder of the colorfully offbeat women’s website The Hairpin. Like The Hairpin, these essays are funny, weird, adventurous, and moving. There are stories about following a mysterious stranger’s maps in Mexico, attending endless step aerobics classes in Buenos Aires, faking a terrible British accent in London, and navigating a nude spa in Stockholm. About loneliness, connection, and sunburn.
