    Story
    (2700)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story
    Would you listen to Wild again? Why?

    Finding threads of my own experience in Wild, I definitely will return to trek the PCT with Cheryl again, using her time on the trail to look at my own personal demons.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Toting an overfull backpack for over 1100 miles is a grueling experience. I loved that fact that she would never give up. Each step bringing her closer to her destination both inner and outer.


    What does Bernadette Dunne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not sure if she was the best person to read the book, I did have trouble at first with her voice and personality and fitting that with how I imagined Cheryl


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried all along the trail, especially at the end. I didn't want the journey to be over.


    Any additional comments?

    Made me want to get out my pack and start hiking the PCT right away.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Overall

    I love this book, loved the first one. Its just hard to wait for the next in this series. On the other hand, with the long wait, it just means I get to listen to both books again.
