I read it. Loved it. Listened to it. Loved it even more. Well done Bill and Bill.
I'm always sad when a Bill Bryson book finishes, especially those narrated by William Roberts. Interesting and funny!
"the best book I have ever listened to."
absolutely amazing loved it so much yeehaa
this is the best one ever its great like his others.
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.
Great book with great narration. Looking forward to the film. i would recommend this book.
