Say something about yourself!
Yes. Great example of a memoir that is entertaining and full of adventure.
No, but I looked forward to picking it back up each time.
Great book. Reminds me of Walk Across America. Only portion I didn't enjoy and added no value to the book was the killing of her mothers horse.
Everything about this book was amazing. Story. Honesty. Narrative. Descriptions. Extremely inspirational for the rest of us to step out of our comfort zone. Thank you Cheryl.

I enjoyed the story about the Pacific Coast Trail and all her adventures. Cheryl did a great job weaving stories of her past into your struggles in the trail.
Ugh, I totally wanted to enjoy this book because the movie received such rave reviews. That said, I thought the narration was a disaster. I am returning this book because I just can't bear to listen to it. I lasted until about chapter 3 and finally gave up. Here's the thing though, the narrator is a lovely performer with a nice voice and excellent pronounciation. She just doesn't fit the role AT ALL.
I don't know the author, but I know how she describes herself in this book is completely opposite of how the narrator sounds. I expect her to sound rough around the edges, informal, emotional even. This woman sounds like she's approaching 60 and meets the ladies for high tea every afternoon. Another reviewer said they like to have the narration remind them of how it would sound in their head if they themselves were reading it. I agree. I felt like I was being read to and my storyteller was just worried about ennuciation and pronunciation. I'm going to read it on my own.
The voice was fit to the main character in the book. I would really recommend reading Wild if you want to feel inspired like adventure books.
Wild was a story of a young girl trying to find herself after the loss of her mother.
It was inspirational, sad, and full of suspense. I only wished for more information and story telling about the trail. Had a lot of family drama compared to a journey taken on the PCT.
The narrator did a fantastic job of story telling.
I loved the amazing story of Cheryl's journey. I felt like I was right there with her experiencing it all.
All of them
