I love this guy! I love this narration and I am buying all his audiobooks available. I recommend any and all of his writings to everyone.....
Looking for something "different"....and entertaining ? Then "A Walk in the Woods" is for you. All of Bill's books are easy listening and really make the time fly by....and you learn something about the places he visits too!
If your tired of self help, political *&^^% and murder mysteries give Bill a try!
I would recommend this book for an easy spirited reading. This book is interesting and based on the authors own real-life experience. Good reading and gives a lot of interesting information about hardships that can come accross in life in forests etc.
Its a good book. Gets a bit boring in between and can feel outstretched a bit.
This book was loads of fun to listen to. It taught me much about the Applachian Trail and hiking in the most enjoyable way possible. I have spent some time in the woods myself and so could relate to many of the experiences he described so hilariously. I love Bill Bryson's sense of humor and his narration can't be beat. If only all audiobooks were this good.... The only problem I have with his books is that he sets the bar too high and it spoils you for other books.
A stimulating and thoughtful story. I thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail a while back and so Bryson brings back old memories. He does overstate the risk of bears and other animal risks, for entertainment effect, presumably. The most serious risks, as always, are hypothermia, creek-crossings, and snow storms. A good tale nontheless.
AHHHHH Bryson, my favorite writer, although ironically I'm never read any of his stuff. I say, Why deprive yourself of his voice, a pleasant mix of british and American, with a nice bass tone. I listen to his cd's over and over again, and I encourage others to do the same. Although his two most recent novels are excellent, it is "A Walk in the Woods" that contains the most Bryson, shown most excellently over his dialogue with "Kats." After listening to this book, don't be surprised if you feel the need to hike a bit of the Appallacians.
Great book - I was sorry to have it end. Although I'm sure it would also be good to read, it was especially enjoyable listening to Bill Bryson's narration. Highly recommended.
The more you love books... the more books you love!
What promised to be a narrative of a simple "walk in the woods" ends up delivering much more. This book is full of Bryson's charm and wit as he leads the reader into interesting anecdotes and little-known lore about the "AT." Makes me want to go hiking.
What a great introduction to Bryson - I'm buying more of his books.
I looked at this title a few times before I purchased it. Great story teller. Perfect for a cross country flight I took recently.
