Really enjoyed the stories from the trail, the people, the experiences.
When I looked at reviews of the movie -- I know I don't need to see it as it seems to highlight the personal stories off the trail - sex, drugs.
After hearing such great things I was excited to listen to this. Unfortunately it was just alright. I didn't find myself excited to come back between sessions and while it wasn't bad, I could have done without.
For a story about a 26 year old woman I felt like the narrator was in her late 60's, which felt very off.
Probably, but I'll read it instead of listening to the audiobook.
This book was good it just feels a little long as an audiobook. It's a relatively short book, and it would have been better to read. Not as much action happens in the book as you'd expect, but it is a true story.
This story has haunted me more than I thought it would. I like these stories about people walking to find themselves. About her life, Cheryl doesn't pull any punches...at times extremely blunt, especially about how she thinks of love and relationships. At times I felt the back story was, at times, long winded. Here, at the end, I find myself thinking about it a lot, about Paul and all the people she met along the way, making me pause before starting the next book (which is unusual). I have a feeling that there's more to this story.
Amazing story! Very compelling!! Author told the story with such grace! Books are always better than movies, but it can't be more true for this book! Must read!!
I really enjoyed listening to Cheryl's experience on the trail. The book kept my attention and made a long commute much more enjoyable. I'm not sure what I was expecting but I thought there would be more adventure behind the title. It really was a story about a woman finding herself and the PCT was where she found her. I would recommend.
