    The Appalachian Trail covers 14 states and over 2,000 miles, snaking through some of the most spectacular landscapes in America. Reluctant adventurer Bryson recounts his gruelling hike along the longest continuous footpath in the world.

    Jil says: "Bring back Bill! Loved his narration of "At Home"."
    "Anyone can have the great adventure."

    Story
    Would you listen to A Walk in the Woods again? Why?

    I will be listening to this book again. It has so much detail, so many interesting facts that I feel I have hardly touched it with only one listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the little everyday details that made me feel I was there on the trail. And I liked the excursions off the track to the quirky history all around the Appalachian trail.


    What about William Roberts’s performance did you like?

    William Roberts made this book for me. He brought so much humour and character to his task. I've heard Bill Bryson narrate his other books, but he could never bring the professional style to the job that William Roberts achieves.


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

    I listen to a chapter at a time on my train commute, but sometimes if I haven't finished the chapter I will wait on the platform and continue listening till the chapter ends.


    Any additional comments?

    Inspires me to do an adventure walk myself. But definitely not the Appalachain trail - too hard! I liked his description of a walk in Europe though.
