Review: A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book started out very strong for me. I loved the author’s voice and his subject matter. I read the first half of the book in one sitting, but then upon taking it up again, I faltered. I didn’t feel a strong appeal in going back, and I really didn’t feel like it was important to finish. There is a bit of a parallel there between my reading and Bryson’s hiking, I suppose. It was a good trip down memory lane, recalling my own adventures on the trail. It was interesting to read about some of the history as well. In the end, though, the story just didn’t have that spark that kept me asking, “what happens next?”
