A Walk in the Woods
Monday, August 30, 2004

This is the first book I've read (actually heard -- it was on tape) by Bill Bryson. He is very funny in that dry and self-effacing style that slowly grows on you. This is a great book from many perspectives: as narrative, as natural history, as auto-biography, as the story of a friendship and a life. Bryson nicely mixes his tale with the tale of the Appalachian Trail (the AT) and both wind along pleasantly through trials and tribulations from Georgia to Maine.
