At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

I expected this book to start out on the trail. It didn't. Instead, the book begins by telling about what led the author to her journey on the PCT.

It took me a little bit of time to get into the story. Once I got a bit into the book, I was completely hooked. I couldn't stop listening. I felt like I was on a journey with the author... and I was sad to see the journey end. It was a great escape during my workday.

  • Allegory of the Cave

Plato's Allegory of the Cave is what many believe to be the foundation of Western Philosophy. It addresses what is visible and invisible, seen and observed versus intuited and imagined, and what is public versus private and just versus unjust. It also concerns the meaning and importance of education, the state of the soul, the conflict between truth and beauty, animal urges versus higher aspirations, knowledge versus ignorance, and on and on.

I am very disappointed with this audiobook. When I purchase an audiobook from Audible, I have come to expect professional quality recordings. The narrator slips over words, pauses, rereads words that were first stated incorrectly, and stumbles over main character names. If this audiobook were .99, I would understand, but at $5 for 45 minutes, I definitely expect a professional quality recording. Additionally, most of the 45 minutes of the recording is narrator commentary, which is not entirely correct or useful... I have never been so disappointed with an audiobook from Audible.
