A Walk in the Woods
A Walk in the Woods | Bill Bryson
God only knows what possessed Bill Bryson, a reluctant adventurer if ever there was one, to undertake a gruelling hike along the world's longest continuous footpathThe Appalachian Trail.The 2,000-plus-mile trail winds through 14 states, stretching along the east coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. It snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in North America, as well as through some of its most poverty-stricken and primitive backwoods areas.With his offbeat sensibility, his eye for the absurd, and his laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Bryson recounts his confrontations with nature at its most uncompromising over his five-month journey.An instant classic, riotously funny, A Walk in the Woods will add a whole new audience to the legions of Bill Bryson fans.

A Walk in the Woods | Bill Bryson

Well turns out I do like me some grumpy old men getting lost in the woods. If you‘re a Bryson fan already, which I am, you‘re going to like this book. Brysons love of history and his endless “Did you know?” facts keep this book interesting. His arguments and peeves with his hiking mate Katz, keep it humorous. And he has a love for this trail and the wilderness. But this is as much about when we give up as when we push through. Very entertaining.

Centique PS that‘s a tree from the park I was in the other day. No idea what it is! 2mo

Reggie Nice review! That tree looks like one of those fairy trees where at night they all come out of it. 2mo
Centique @Reggie I love it! You just know I was the 6 year old determined to find where the fairies were living in the garden. But imagine me in tshirt and torn jeans with grass stains, properly checking up all the trees, happy with spiders in my hair, none of the flouncy dress stuff. 😂😂 2mo

Apparently one of the most divisive books among thru-hikers on the Appalachian Trail. A love or hate type of book. I thought it was decent. Bryson himself annoyed me greatly, but I loved his writing and his soliloquies of preservationist mentality and love for trees, animals, and true, unharmed wildlife. I wouldn‘t recommend this book, but overall liked to read it. Currently nursing a terribly timed, pre long walk foot 🥲

KathyWheeler I read it recently and liked it fine. I didn‘t know it was divisive among hikers. Why is that? 3mo
sarahlandis @KathyWheeler I think because he didn‘t actually thru hike the trail, some thru hikers don‘t like it. Also he never seemed to particularly enjoy his time on the trail haha 2mo

I also just started Cat on a Hot Tin Roof after finishing The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra (which was good enough; probably won‘t read any more titles in the series unless anyone highly recommends them)

1. If I had my way, I‘d sleep under the stars in a hammock or in a tent depending on the weather. Unfortunately my family and friends don‘t share my sentiment and so we‘re usually “glamping”.
2. Camp Quitcherbitchin (I can‘t take credit for making it up, but it‘s VERY fitting for my camp 🤣)
3. Nonfiction: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson,
Fiction: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
4. Read at least one hour a day

ImperfectCJ The first time I saw a camping hammock, it was slung between two trees in a campground near a section of the AT in Vermont. I couldn't tell from how it looked how it would feel to sleep in it, but it captured my imagination. Huck Finn is a great pick for an outdoorsy book! Thanks for joining in! 6mo

I was expecting a laugh riot when I began listening to this book. It‘s often shelved under humor and discussed that way. However, much of this book is pretty serious; there are descriptions of bear attacks, talk about mismanagement of public lands, and stories of a couple of murders on the Appalachian Trail. In between that, there is humor, but also a bit of smugness. Overall, I enjoyed this book.

I‘ve been so sick with COVID that I haven‘t read in over a week, which if you are like me, you must be pretty damn sick not to be able, or actually want to read. Yesterday the fever finally broke, and I felt well enough to pick up a book. And this is the one that captured my interest, taking me far away from myself to the AT. And today, reading this opening sentence in this paragraph is the first time I laughed out loud in weeks.

Originally thought it was a standard recount of the Appalachian trial, but his personal story makes it incredibly relatable. ESP. If the AT‘s on your bucket list! Very realistic but none the less inspiring account to break out your boots and head outside

What can I say - it was Bill Bryson and Audible gave to me for free. Bryson and his old travelling companion Katz decide to walk the Appalachian Trail as middle age men. Full of Bryson‘s normal humour and slightly off centre way of seeing the world. An amusing way to spend a few hours.

I really hated this book and I would have DNF'd it if I wasn't reading this for my book club. Bryson starts the book talking about he's not a pussy like some men, which really put me off and reeked of toxic masculinity there. Yikes. He makes all these comments about people that are condescending that I just want to slap him. In some reviews, I see some love that he does it and thinks he's funny. I think he's an ass.

“This is most unusual in America.” 😂🤣😂 I absolutely adore Bill Bryson! I read his book In A Sunburned Country and fell in love with his style, his humor, and his openness. I‘ve wanted to hike the Appalachian for years now, but like Bill, refuse to go alone. After only reading 20 pages in about the horrific ways you can die, only 30% of which I already knew about, I feel it‘s more than worth the wait to find a partner to go along. 😅

Smarkies I am not sure if I would go if I had a partner like Katz though.... 😅😅 2y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Smarkies Oh no doubt! 😳🤣😂🤣 2y
Smarkies @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I was completely befuddled by the fact that Bryson actually did the trail with him! Though their interactions were actually the heart of the story. 2y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Smarkies I honestly was shocked he didn‘t just turn around the first day. Though I admired his candid nature, I was hoping for him to have grown more from the experience. I felt just as outraged as Bryson when he found out he‘d relapsed and everything. 🤦‍♀️ 2y

This was a great book to read to feel like you are leaving your house and taking an adventure.

Bill Bryson tells his tale of deciding to hike the Appalachian Trail while adding in the history of the trail surrounding towns and bear attacks.

It's a funny, informative, and an enjoyable read. I would warn the second part of the book does not read as quickly as the first so if you decide to pick this up, be prepared for that.
