    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.

    Would you listen to Wild again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again and recommend to my friends. I've always dreamed of hiking the PCT or the AT and I feel like I've had a taste of it through Cheryl Strayed's experience. I really enjoyed this.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild?

    I thought the beginning of her hike and her lack of preparedness was a great moment in the book. I felt her pain!

    A sniper opens fire on a crowded Californian schoolyard but is killed before any children are harmed. When the sniper’s identity is revealed, a media frenzy erupts – why would they want to take innocent lives? Psychologist Alex Delaware is brought in to help the kids cope with the ordeal but is quickly drawn into exploring the motives of the would-be assassin. Alex soon finds himself on a bloody and twisted trail into the world of political extremism from which there may be no way back…

    What disappointed you about Time Bomb?

    I am a huge Kellerman/Delaware fan, but this book seemed to drag on without any of the usual suspense that I've grown accustomed to with the series. It dwells on details ad nauseum. I'm also not a big fan of the reader, Jeff Harding, and his vocalizations of the characters.
    I've read every Kellerman/Delaware novel published to date. This is the one I would not recommend.
