This is at times a breath taking story of loss and a broken life made whole again through a journey. At times I felt as if I was with Cheryl on the trail. I could envision the high Serra's and the mojave desert as she made her pilgrimage. This is a classics story of loss and discovering that what we seek was inside all along.
We weren't super impressed with the narrator- the character in the book is a young woman finding herself and the narrator reading it sounded like an older woman. It made the story hard to believe.
Don't really have one, but did appreciate her mental ebb and flow while on the trail. Felt that was pretty accurate.
The pointless exagerations. Everything was larger than life. There was a sex scene early on that came out of no where, pretty much for no reason. Just make it less bullshit, more realistic, maybe some adventure.
Just a chick flick/book. Not my thing.
Definitely! Great story. Cheryl takes you along on her journey. An escape but also prompts you to think about your own life.
Great to get some book recommendations as a part of the story!
