It was a well written and enjoyable book, however I couldn't stand Cheryl. It reminded me of [Eat, Pray, Love] in that she brought on all her problems herself and I felt absolutely no pity or love for her - in fact I felt like she got really lucky and didn't deserve that luck.I wouldn't describe her trek on the PCT as inspirational, but I did think - If this fool who is totally unprepared and knows nothing about hiking can do it. I totally could hike the PCT. I was a little sad that she skipped the High Sierras since that is the only section I have hiked, and would have like to compare with her experiences.I also thought she should have left out the scene with the horse - I thought it was horrific and unnecessary.
This book was an easy and enjoyable read, but really nothing special. Alice was so lame and such a loser, that you had a hard time feeling bad for her. I like Jane Green, but this was not one of her better books.
I enjoyed this book more than I expected. I had never read anything about Lincoln, and the author made what could have been a boring biography way more fun. I do wonder how much of the history was accurate?
I really loved 1421, Mann's previous book and this new book did not disappoint. It was well written and extremely interesting. I enjoy learning new things and this book was an excellent use of my time.
