I don't think so.
The big thing I couldn't take was the whining. It felt like the entire book was her whining about something, past or present.
Concept could have been amazing, a woman traveling the PCT by herself, that's awesome. Book fell way short.
I was looking for a book about a strong woman that overcame substantial obstacles, something to inspire me. This didn't turn out to be it. The whole underlying story of her mother dying and crushing her life for eternity and her promiscuity/drug use was not made any better by constant reliving and whining. This was an epic fail book for me, I couldn't get past 4 hours of it.
Easy book to listen to and follow along! Will definitely read more from this author!
Yes, it is inspiring and thought provoking about who you really are.
The feeling and reality
One more chance to be you
I felt her pain and gain. I realized it before she did and wanted to encourage her. Cheryl did not disappoint me.
I saw the movie then read the book. For the first time I can say that the movie is as good, if not better then the book.
i love books
A wonderful book very well written Loved it funny exciting and worth every minute. One of my favorites for the year
Cheryl is so generous to share her personal story. Overcoming her fears in the wilderness with her strength of character is truly a lesson to consider when fear stops me in my tracks. Thank you!
I liked the narrator. The story held my interest; even my husband was intrigued enough to finish out the story with me. The solid character development is what propelled me to finish listening; I longed for her to come full circle into her own. She does just that by the end of her journey.
A little redundant in the writing, and the writing style seemed to almost try too hard. I thought the story was best toward the end; I had a hard time being patient with Cheryl. I was also very angry at the unnecessary and preventable suffering that Lady endured. That has haunted me for days. I admire the courage it took to do something so physically challenging, how that revealed the even more challenging inner work of Cheryl, and the vulnerability she displayed into to becoming healthy and transformed.
