I will be listening to this book again. It has so much detail, so many interesting facts that I feel I have hardly touched it with only one listening.
I love the little everyday details that made me feel I was there on the trail. And I liked the excursions off the track to the quirky history all around the Appalachian trail.
William Roberts made this book for me. He brought so much humour and character to his task. I've heard Bill Bryson narrate his other books, but he could never bring the professional style to the job that William Roberts achieves.
I listen to a chapter at a time on my train commute, but sometimes if I haven't finished the chapter I will wait on the platform and continue listening till the chapter ends.
Inspires me to do an adventure walk myself. But definitely not the Appalachain trail - too hard! I liked his description of a walk in Europe though.
