Don't know since I didn't read the print version; but the movie was terrible which will probably keep some from reading the book.
Didn't love narrator voice but story was great. I was given as a gift in softcover and just didn't have the time to read...adding as an audio book to my commute was a perfect decision.
This was poorly written and worse is was misleading about the journey.
The 1st page.
To many true stories written that are worth your time.
I cannot imagine choosing this challenge, especially having no experience before starting. Bravo, Cheryl, for your perseverance and for making your journey so real and relatable. I almost felt like I was hiking along with you...almost...This was such an interesting book and I really enjoyed every step taken and challenge overcome. You find yourself cheering Cheryl on to the end of the trail. Reese - you're awesome (goes without saying).
The narrator's voice spoiled the listening experience for me. She sounds too old to be telling the story of a 20-something year old woman, and I found her voice to be annoying.
This was a great story. I related strongly to the author's abusive childhood, and to the loss of her beloved mother. I understood her reaction to the losses and experiences with self-destructive behaviors.
I was terrified for Cheryl while she was out on the trail alone. I read the print version at bedtime each night, and I'd go in to work the next day and tell a co-worker: "You won't believe what this crazy chick did last night!" as if I'd been there on the trail, watching her journey from a distance.
Why oh why wasn't the narration job given to the author? She has a beautiful voice. I asked Cheryl Strayed, via Facebook why she didn't read the audiobook, she said the job wasn't offered to her. Big mistake.
Enjoyed both story and narrator Would recommend to anyone looking for a good story thanks
Good story. Easy to follow. Easy to continue to the end
