    Would you rather know a truth that makes you feel hopeless, or keep believing the lies? Beloved and bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with the spellbinding story of two young people with devastating pasts who embark on a passionate, intriguing journey to discover the lessons of life, love, trust--and above all, the healing power that only truth can bring.

    Any additional comments?

    I found myself getting quite wrapped up in the emotions of this story, particularly right in the middle with what I consider the MAIN confrontation - but the two main characters, although quite likeable and empathetic, seemed mature WAY beyond their years, even considering their childhoods. I find it very hard to believe any young man could be as sympathetic and understanding as Holder. I would say he would be EVERY WOMAN'S fantasy - good looking, thoughtful, protective, sexy, loving, etc. etc.After that main confrontation, however, the story became a bit monotonous and predictable. Ms. Goethals' performance was quite good and certainly helped me get through the story.

    Story

    In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself.

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

    Yes....it is a fascinating story, and the author gives a lot of detail what may have been the thought processes of the main character,Chris McCandless.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chris because he was a very interesting psychological study. His personality was very complex and I am still unclear what he was really about.


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

    Yes....I listened to it (for the second time) with my young adult sons, and we were all saddened at Chris's fate, while at the same time disgusted with his selfishness and cluenessness about the consequences of his actions. He seemed to be an interesting (albeit misguided) young man, with a lot of potential. A sad waste of a life.


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said in my heading...Jon krakauer is a great author. His style is intelligent yet very easy to comprehend.

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 6 mins)

    Story

    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.
