    I appreciated her honesty and her attempt at being a likeable author, but I think she summed it up best when she encountered the stranger, who upon hearing her partner s name was Optimist, that she must be Pessimist She has a lot of room for growth as a writer and the book felt, especially the end, quite disjointed i.e did the author s purpose and intent change while writing the book Sometimes the writing rambled, like a stream of consciousness and I wondered ...

    I almost gave up on this book early on, as it could really have benefited from better editing and proofreading There were sentence fragments In one single trip Also known as the term, thru hiking , misplaced commas, and repetition galore It read like an essay written by an earnest high school or college student trying to pad her page count I persevered, though, much like the author did on the Pacific Crest Trail I enjoyed...

    I read this book shortly after reading Bill Bryson s book, A Walk in the Woods and there are some obvious comparisons and contrasts Like the protagonists in Mr Bryson s book, Ms Urbanski attempts her long thru hike without ever having backpacked before but unlike them, she grows to relish the journey and appreciate the experience In addition to the fact that she completes her thru hike and Bryson does not, I respect her accomplishment muchthan Bryson s because of her ultimate attitu I read this book shortly after reading Bill Bryson s book, A Walk in the Woods and there are some obvious comparisons and contrasts Like the protagonists in Mr Bryson s book, Ms Urbanski attempts her long thru hike without ever having backpacked before but unlike them, she grows to relish the journey and appreciate the experience In addition to the fact that she completes her thru hike and Bryson does not, I respect her accomplishment muchthan Bryson s because of her ultimate attitude toward the experience.I appreciate that the Kindle version of this book was free, but this self published...

    I thought that this was an interesting book Ms Urbanski did not take the usual approach to writing a trail book Instead of the journal aspect of the book, she wrote what she learned about herself and life during each different section of the trail Some people give the book grief over that aspect on , but I found it refreshing Sometimes, after reading several different trail journals, it gets a little old reading, We woke up at Tuolumne Meadows and ate a quick breakfast before stowing I thought that this was an interesting book Ms Urbanski did not take the usual approach to writing a trail book Instead of the journal aspect of the book, she wrote what she learned about herself and life during each different sec...

    Things I liked The author seemed to try to be as authentic as possible, and not get carried away with the mysticism commonly found in books about long distance hiking I also thought that she tried to be honest with her style of hiking, and the ups and downs she faced as a result And I thought the book ended really strong, so it s worth finishing if you re on the bubble.Things I wasn t to keen on The book can get a little dull at times, especially if you ve read alot of books about long dista Things I liked The author seemed to try to be as authentic as possible, and not get carried away with the mysticism commonly found in books about long distance hiking I also thought that she tried to be honest with her style of hiking, and the ups and downs she faced as a result And I thought the book ended really strong, so it s worth finishing if you re on the bubble.Things I wasn t to keen on The book can get a little dull at times, especially if you ve read alot of books about long dista...

    Wasn t a fan of this book by Julie Have read another and really enjoyed it, maybe because it switched chapters between Optimist and Stopwatch Way too cerebral for me, garbled memories back and forth across the PCT never made me feel like I was on it I am a fan of their hiking style, and enjoyed the Hike Your Own Hike chapter a lot More andwe are seeing the ugly side of the trail gaining popularity, most recently with the success of Wild, and people so critical of how others hike I lik Wasn t a fan of this book by Julie H...

    Not as grabbing as A long way from nowhere which I read first but a good enough book taking the reader on a real adventure instead of an author making up a real adventure I prefer the amateur writers as it makes me feelconnected to the story Julie did a great job building up the chapters on topics in this book, but the narrative is a little bumpy with this approach It feels a little like an a...

    I wasn t very impressed by the author s tone She s pretty negative about most of her journey, though every once in a while she ll interject a comment about how pretty it was, but then go right back to complaining Apparently she liked itthan she lets on since she has continued to backpack and write about it, but I really didn t get the feeling she was happy It s always a choice, obviously, what to write about, and she chose not to focus on the good Backpacking can be very tough,...
