    "More please"

    I'm always sad when a Bill Bryson book finishes, especially those narrated by William Roberts. Interesting and funny!

    "Wonderfully entertaining"

    I loved this listen, had not really known what it was about, or that the Appellation Trial existed, Bryson's wit and observation keeps you excited, laughing and on occasion horrified.
    I also learnt stuff!!
    Comes highly recommended.

    "A talk in the woods"

    having never listened to or read a Bill Bryson book before I didn't know what to expect. I bought the unabridged version of the book and having listened to it, I now think perhaps the abridged would have been better. If you are familiar with Bill's seemingly endless historical, cultural and geographical waffling...and enjoy this, then you'll love the unabridged version. I however absolutely loved the story of him and Katz and although a little extra information about the trail was great, I soon got bored of it and just wanted to hear more about his antics on the trail. So if you'd rather just stick to the story, I would imagine the abridged version would be more your cup of tea :)

    "A (speedy) walk in the woods"

    I love this book and have read my paperback version several times. But Roberts reads too quickly. I much prefer the version read by Bryson himself

    "Read this before you see the film!"

    Another Bryson gem, narrated by the golden voice of William Roberts. A great adventure on the Appalachian Trail.

    "Bryson! Wonderful as always"

    I love the humour in Bill Bryson's work and I also very much admire his sharp social and cultural observations, and the amount of interesting and valuable information he delivers. I will be reading another Bryson soon.

    William Roberts is again excellent in bringing Bryson's prose to life.

    "Just a fantastic read"

    This must be one of Bill Bryson's best. Having only started hiking 8 months ago I can appreciate the whole story. This is a must for hikers. Very witty with a beautiful use of language. I've read several already and I'll be looking for more. Well narrated too.
