Yoga, Accelerated Learning and Wellness are my main interests. Throw in Languages, Business and Leadership and we have a bookshelf to envy.
Listening to this book I fell in love with the thought of hiking and the PCT. Her beginner level of skill and vivid descriptions leads me to think that anyone with the motivation can do the trail.
It ended well, but was so hard to want to pic up and finish. Almost too much backstory. This is the writers story and needed to be told for her but I wouldn't recommend this book. The movie I now have no desire to see.
narrator was meh
i loved the story though. the word inspirational would be an appropriate description, i suppose (not the kind of books i usually seek).
sad at times but overall i really enjoyed it.
This book has been such an inspiration listening to it while I was preparing
for my very first 5K. I just finished listening to it for the second time and feel like it helps me walk through the pain and keep forging on. I'm not yet a speed demon but I'm trying!!
I'm not really much of a hiker but I found the story quite engaging. Whilst I could understand why the main character Cheryl Strayed went on this journey, which is to try to find her footing after having lost her way in life,
It was difficult to understand why any woman would want to place herself through the danger of hiking the trail alone.
As the main character said, she was for the most part very lucky. I guess the hardships endured enabled her to find her way in the end!
