    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).

    Story
    Would you try another book from Bill Bryson and/or Rob McQuay?

    Not unless read by the author


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story was hilarious


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rob McQuay?

    Bill Bryson


    Any additional comments?

    I had owned the CD audio recording and without reading the details - assumed this would have also be read by Bill Bryson. There is no comparison between the narrator Rob McQuay and the actual author. The author is much better. I will think twice or more before ordering any additional audo books from Audible.
