I loved it. I couldn't stop listening. I went out and bought a hard copy so that when the audio book finished now, I can go back and re-read, making notes in the margins and highlight important parts. What an amazing experience. Bernadette gives a great performance.
My heart alternately raced and slowed along with the story. I was there with her. Then sneaking off into the comforts of my life, quickly returning to hear more of the wild unraveling journey of boldness and naïveté. Delicious!
The first part of the book was a little difficult to stay interested. The last half was great. I love real stories and this book was definitely real. thank you Cheryl strayed for sharing your life on paper.
Sooo much better than the movie and I really liked the movie. It never lagged but carried you along as if you were walking beside her. What I missed in the Movie was the actual detail of her trip, both struggles and beauty. The book did not disappoint. It was all there raw and intimate.
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!
