If I read the book I would have skipped over all the details.
I felt the performance was excellent and kept my interest.
No, I felt I needed a break at times from the story. Not that it wasn't well written, it just got a little long at times.
This story made me long for the outdoors more and more as the story unfolded. I have hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail and it was fantastic! Now I want to return and hike the whole thing!
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.
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.
