    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
    Where does A Walk in the Woods rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A Walk in the Woods is one of the books that I'm so happy to have listened to. The narrators voice is playful and tongue in cheek. I always enjoy listening to Rob McQuay narrate. I have this niggly teasing thought in the back of my head that I would love to walk the Appalachian trail. At times the book is a little dark but mostly it is a really light hearted account of his journey and thoughts.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Walk in the Woods?

    My favorite moments are his interactions with his walking companion - and how close the walk makes them despite their obvious differences.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it quite quickly but not all in one sitting. The narrators voice is so much fun that it lifted my mood to listen to him talk. It reminded me so much of the Vinyl Cafe radio stories (a canadian institution) that it really felt like coming home.
