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.
Very well written. Could have done without foul language. Good read for hiking enthusiast, very realistic!! I can see me walking along, caught up in my thoughts and not hearing the rattlesnake!!
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.
I wouldn't read another book by this author if you paid me. But luckily she can't possibly have enough more to whine about to fill another book.
This young woman leaves a man who loves her for no apparent reason, although she never sets eyes on a man that she doesn't at least think about sleeping with. Her mother dies so she starts doing heroin and changes her last name to something dumb, then she goes on a hike totally unprepared (but she doesn't forget the condoms- well, you just never know if you are Cheryl Strayed). And now she writes a book that will scar her children for life. What's to like?
I loved this book from the beginning until the end. What a wonderful Life Journey this women lived. I wish to have half as much guts as she had.
How the journey blossomed.
This was one of the best read books I have encountered via audible. I felt like I was living the experience with the author.
Yes but that wasn't happening...
The story was inspiring without being cliche.
I want to go on my own journey to find myself. Before reading this story I didn't realize that I could use a journey of self discovery; but I could.
