Audio Book Summary

Oprah's Book Club 2.0 selection.

A powerful, blazingly honest memoir: the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe—and built her back up again.
At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.
Strayed faces down rattlesnakes and black bears, intense heat and record snowfalls, and both the beauty and loneliness of the trail. Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

    Been hearing about this book for years and finally tried it. I'm still listening, though I agree with others that the narrator seems too old (to describe a 26-year-old's journey) and doesn't captivate like other narrators I've listened to; it's actually pretty distracting. The story is interesting and inspiring-ish, though the author spends a lot of time describing random details that don't seem important or meaningful to the story itself. That said, I'm still listening and interested to hear how it wraps up. Overall a decent read, but underwhelming compared to the hype.

    I think it could have been a great listen, but the narrator is so ill-suited for this story. Her voice was way too old.

    The book kept me engaged. There were moments of sadness and tears but also of joy and laughter. I enjoyed her candidness and willingness to talk about her shortcomings in a humorous way.

    Great book, sadly the narrator was a little whiny and her tone was condescending I wished that Cheryl had narrated it as she has done with some of her other books.
