I can't imagine anyone narrating his books other than him. The book is great, the narration is great. When you see someone laughing at the stop light, they're probably listening to Bill Bryson.
If you want a book that will make you laugh outloud, this is the one. Listening to this book was a fun experience and the descriptions of Bill Bryson's journey were so vivid I really could picture what his journey entailed. His sense of humor is wonderful and I look forward to listening to another of his books.
This is a great book. We heard part of it on XM and had to have a copy. Bill Bryson is a great author and the book is informative and great entertainment. It makes me want to grab a back pack and hit the trail.
I love Bill Bryson- so glad he reads his own material because it adds that element of real time and place - he is funny as a reader-writer; yet as often as I listen, he never fails to cause one to think, or if you are a world traveler, to remember!
i really enjoyed this book. Bryson has unique but funny sense of humor and there's always a good story behind anyone willing to challenge themselves to a new and uncertain experience. People evolve through journeys like these - so be open to it!
The author narrates this book and his english accent is a bit distracting at first. This book is laugh out loud funny and is a great book to listen to on long trips. If you hike the Appalachian Trail or have an interest to do so this book is not a guide ... just one persons perspective.. a very humerous perspective.
This is a great book for those who are the outdoors type. Bryson does a great job of describing his feeling and interactions with other people, animals, and nature, but some of the things he talks about are specific to only those who are familiar to the Appalachian Trail's surroundings. The book was very funny and I highly recommend it to anyone who has visited the AT or has a strong interest in the environmental factors the east coast is facing today.
