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!
I enjoyed listening to this story event though I zoned out on many of specific trail, scenery details. I liked the way the life details were intertwined and connected with her trip on the PCT.
Loved the refreshing burst of inspiration and girl power. I didn't want her journey to end! Makes me want to drop everything and hike the PCT.
Sure, but I would set low expectations.
The story was darker than I was expecting. I was expecting more adventures, but what I got was a lot of dark stories about why her life is messed up.
No. The narration was my LEAST favorite aspect of the book.
It already is.
I liked the story more than the narration. I felt like I was being read to, rather than the author telling her story.
I have recommended the book, not nessararily audible . It fueled my interest in hiking
The fortitude of Strayed. Her determination
To the best of my recollection this was the first
