Yes, I enjoy listening to this book while doing housework and running errands around town. However, I did get annoyed with her story. She seamed to always be searching for something, maybe, inner peace? Similar to the author in the book Eat, Pray, Love. Never satisfied with the good that she has right in front of her. Always needing to "go find her self" give me a break!
With that said, I must admit, the author is a great story teller. Loved her ability to describe the beauty of the Pacific Crest Trail. I felt I was right there with her.
What I did not like about Cheryl Strayed's book - her whining about how bad she had it as a young girl with parents that didn't encourage her to go to a better college. She never explained why she had the affairs while married to her husband. She does describe him as her best friend, but yet she can't help but cheat on him! The WHY is not explained?? Maybe that's in her next book.
I compare this story to "The Glass Castle" by Jennifer Walls, where not once did she complain about her parents. In fact she always spoke of them fondly.
Excellent. Very clear and captivating voice.
Somewhat. I am adventurous, within reason. I could never set off to hike the PCT but I would love to go visit that part of the country someday.
