This has been on my list for a long time--I heard the author interviewed on the radio and was intrigued.

I deliberately stayed clear of anything written about it and when the film was released - I managed to stay clear of that, too, even though I really wanted to see it. A friend told me this morning (on reading my FB update about the book) that the film is not worth watching.

As for the book, I really enjoyed it. Mostly because it seemed very honest. Just one thing - I should have mentioned a trigger warning about an episode where a horse is put down. That was pretty awful and graphic.

Great review! This is the first review that's made me want to pick up the book.

Thanks! What's been putting you off about the book?

I don't know. I think I just envision pages upon pages of prose about trees and walking and epiphanies. I like hiking, don't necessarily want to read about it. Not quite sure if I'd enjoy that.

Lol! No, I can see how that would be off-putting! If you wanted to read pages and pages about trees, you'd read Lord of the Rings, right?! ;) No, the story wasn't like that at all - she does describe the trail and some of the landmarks - but the descriptions are vivid and interesting enough and don't take over the story.

Thanks for the review - I guess I had thought the book would be over the top sentimental or something.

And your pic from hiking is glorious!

Yeah, I was a bit surprised, too. I really don't like sentimental and OTT writing styles either.
