This is actually my 2nd listen of A Walk In the Woods. I read the book the first time but it had been awhile decided to give it another listen. Funny as I remember. Lots of factual information about the AT and it's history.
In all fairness, I didn't read the other books in this series, only watched the movies. This selection was given as a freebie. I'm not sure if the others were so tedious. Lots of action that will make for a great movie. There seemed to be a lot of unnecessary descriptions , "she sat in the red vinyl seat and opened the plastic-covered menu..." who cares? Sometimes, less is more.
The narrator did a good job. I was able to distinguish between characters.
Heart and gut wrenching at times. A very emotional read for me. Really makes you think. What would I do? How can I get my family "ready"? Everyone should read this book.
Baldacci does not disappoint. Fast paced, "what's going to happen next" read.
