"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.
the humour Bill Bryson brings to every day situations
anything else by the author
Helped me make my mind up that this walk is a bit too hardcore for me
"Really loved this book"
I'm a big fan of Bill Bryson but this is one of my favourites , entertaining and charming , also glad it's being made into a film !
A well read, great book. Good mix of adventure, characters and interesting facts & stories.
"Bryson at his best"
What a delight and a hilarious adventure I have enjoyed listening to this over and over. It should come with a warning .. Do not listen to this in public. The book has the same effect. Bryson is so talented. And now Robert Redford stars in the movie can't wait to see it. No spoiler alert but you must read this book to see for you self what happens when to friends take a walk in the woods. Enjoy.
