A few reviewers have found fault that Bryson doesn't get a step-by-step account of the AT...other complain that Bryson complains too much about the challenges that he encountered. However, It is true that Bryson did not walk the trail straight through, but how many of us really have time for that? However, he was not trying to write a trail guide nor was he shy about explaining that walking a 2,100 mile trail was not easy. He is able to write a true story about the challenges faced and the characters that you may walk across while on the trail. Whether it is Mary Ellen and her annoying non-stop opinions or the college kids that are inconsiderate to their fellow cabin mates.
Final verdict -
The net effect of "A Walk in the Woods" is a story that inspires - to the point where I was trying to determine if I could take 6-months off from work to walk it myself. I really can't recommend it highly enough - unless you are looking for a straight trail guide. If you are looking for either a great (relatively quick) read or as a nice supplement to your AT reading material "A Walk in the Woods" is tough to beat.
Bryson' s humor had me in hysterics on many pages.
Seriously, I had tears rolling off my face. Worth the time.
