    The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America - majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way - and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in anything! However, if you're a hiker or you've ever considered striking out on the AT, this book will be of great interest and entertainment. More than a memoir of Bryson's adventures along the AT, his wit and sense of humor come through as his topics wander into history, philosophy, science, and conservation.As an avid day hiker, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the book. I have heard others say that reading this made them re-think their desire to hike the AT, but I found it made me want to start planning some section hikes. A through hike is probably not in my future, but who knows?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Bryson himself. I found his views informative, and his tales of travel and adventure as an author inspiring.


    What about Rob McQuay’s performance did you like?

    The narration is excellent. McQuay takes on each character with distinct personality, so that you feel you are right there listening to the conversation rather than hearing a second hand account. If I ever met 'Katz', I would be surprised if he didn't talk just as he does in McQuay's narration!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's "what we do".
