This is one of those amazing stories that you want to go on forever. As I watched the "time left" diminishing near the end of the book, I became sad it was almost over. I think I need to go on a hike.
I enjoyed the story; it was entertaining and kept my attention. However, I didn't find it to be particularly profound and it was oftentimes predictable, which I find disappointing. The reader's voice, Bernadette, seemed too old for the main character, so a lot of the scenes seemed unbelievable or laughable when read by an old woman. Despite all of my gripes, I would recommend the book to a friend and I appreciated learning about the PCT.
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.
