    I wouldn’t say that this book kept me at the edge of my seat, but it kept me wholly entertained in the way that an excellent magazine keeps you on the toilet seat for an extra 20 minutes after you’ve finished just so that you can read another really good article.

    5 stars for great entertainment. No, I wouldn’t recommend it to my friends.

    A few years ago I had occasion to re-read HATCHET, by Gary Paulsen. I did not do this on my own, but with a fourth-grade boy who was wholly entranced by it. I had never been a big HATCHET fan myself (I preferred the Little House books, if you wanted to get right down to it), but reading it with this kid gave me a new appreciation for what the book allowed us both to do: live in the terrifying wilderness, live in the terrifying aloneness, live in the brave and cold

    I never write reviews and I am only part way through this book but I had a compelling thought to share with the reviewer that indicated that it was reckless and dangerous for Cheryl Strayed to embark on this trip that was so over her head and that others might try the same and be in danger. my comment is about the experience of grief. While this book is not as compellingly great to me as many of my friends have found it I am enjoying it
