  • "Glad I Took the Trip"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I am probably one of the last people to read and review this book because I tend to shy away from most Oprah selections. Yes, Oprah has inspired thousands to pick up a book who otherwise might not have and catapulted authors into super stardom and for that I applaud her and am thankful. I just tend to stray from over-hyped books at first. There, I said it; please don't hate me.

    This selection was wonderful and here is why I enjoyed it. At 26, Cheryl was divorced from a man she loved; lost her supportive mother to cancer; abusive father left around age 6; disconnected from siblings; and was pulling out of a previous spiral into the world of heroin. Finding herself in a dark place, she turned to the guide for hiking the Pacific Coast Trail as many people turn to the Bible or any other source of enlightenment to find themselves.

    Strayed shares abundant, almost copious details from her 2 months journey, laying out all the ugly and pretty inbetween with a raw, soul-searching style. You embark on the ill-planned journey of her life in addition to the hiking trip and travel not only through the rough terrain and mishaps, but deep into her soul searching. I don't find her self-involved or Godless, merely honest and I enjoyed each and every step.

    Some reviewers disliked the narrator and I admit I wasn't crazy about her voice at first. If Cheryl was 26, I was thrown how the narrator's gravely older voice didn't match. However after the first 30 minutes, was hooked. Grew to think of her as the present day Cheryl recounting the past.

    If you read and enjoy this title, download or pick up a copy of Mary Karr's, "Lit."

    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.

Susie's greatest hits:
  • 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.

  • The Armchair Birder: Discovering the Secret Lives of Familiar Birds

    "Yow is the Bees Knees"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    "The Armchair Birder" is about a niche topic that is written so well, and with such charm and wit, it would captivate the most bird-indifferent imagination. For birders, especially the casual and recreational, Yow is the bee's knees.

    The great thing about Yow’s book is that it’s all about familiar birds—what we see and hear about everyday, not the exotic: Bluejays, woodpeckers, mourning doves, eagles, wild turkeys, owls.

    The anecdotes alone make for a memoir not soon forgotten. Yow talks about bird feelings and behaviors—you'll recognize some personalities from your own human family! It was as if the birds themselves were talking to Yow and sharing all their secrets.

  • 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.

    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).

Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck’s attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature—to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.

    This is not a book about trains but about the variety of Spain. The best-selling author Christopher Howse makes 10 great railway journeys that explore the interior of the peninsula, its astonishing landscapes and ancient buildings. The focus is the way the Spanish live now: their habits, streets, characters, stories - and quite a bit about their eating and drinking.
