What an absolutely wonderful book! When Mr. Bryson writes, you feel he is talking directly to you. And his use of wit and humor interspersed with his running journal of days on the trail...well, you almost want to get out the hiking boots and tent and start a walk in the woods!
Have Just started reading this book, so I can not rate it, fairly. I can only rate what I've read so far, and it is true "Bryson." If you like Bryson's wit and style, this book will not disappoint you.
The descriptions of life on the trail are so real you can see yourself there. And you will find yourself laughing out loud at some of the things that happen with these two adventurers. I used to think I wanted to hike the trail, but am content to let these two do the hiking for me.
