After Paul Stutzman lost his wife to breast cancer, he sensed a tug on his heart - the call to a challenge, the call to pursue a dream.

What a journey. Both, emotional and spiritual. As I mentally prepare for my own white blaze journey, I've been seeking information from folks like Paul Stutzman (Apostle). I got what I was looking for, and a whole lot more more than I expected with this book.

If you are planning on (or just thinking about) hiking the Appalachian Trail, this book is for you. Planning an Appalachian Trail thru-hike is overwhelming. I know. I spent months researching every question I could think of before starting the six-month journey. Even after all of that research, there were countless mistakes I made. This book is everything I wish I would have known before starting. Inside is a step-by-step guide to efficiently plan for a successful thru-hike. Complete with personal tips and experiences.

I've got 1 main item in my bucket list. With my 23 year divorce looming, the idea of making my dream a reality has been weighing heavily on my mind.
Chris does a great job of getting to the point without diving into too much personal experience. (Even though I'd love to hear more of his stories) the book sticks to the premise of the title and he gives LOTS of great info.
Unfortunately, I didn't take notes the first time so I'll be listening again.

Just a tad though. Who knows, maybe I'm just sad that it's over. ☹
I think an incredible story about Chase could be made. Just saying. A spin-off series of books.

Weredragons, men call them. Monsters. Cursed ones. People who can turn into beastly reptiles. In an ancient world just rising from darkness, they are everywhere. Everywhere their curse is the same and everywhere, they are hunted. They hide in forests and caves, dispersed. Many are alone, unaware that others exist. They are shunned, afraid, dying...until a group of these lost souls binds together and stands tall. Together they will forge a new tribe, a home for their kind. A dawn of dragon rises. The nation of Requiem is born.

What disappointed you about Requiem's Song?

I'm a fan of Terry Goodkind. I read Daniel Areson's post on facebook which said, more or less, "if your a fan of Terry Goodkind.....you'll love this series". I listened to the first half hour and turned it off. My day is full of regret now. There's one credit i'll never get back. BAHHHHHH

Would you ever listen to anything by Daniel Arenson again?

I would give Daniel Arenson another shot if the reviews were positive.

The storyline just wasn't as interesting as the previous books. The only reason I'll purchase the next book, is to give the author the chance to redeem himself. The writing style in all the books so far has been very basic and immature in my opinion. Almost to the point that you, the reader, or listener could assume what the characters will say next.......but........ I've been entertained with the storyline and the path that the books were headed in. Until this book that is.
Just my opinion.
