This was a book club pick, but before that Oprah Winfrey 2.0 and Reese Witherspoon recommended it to me. I say this first because recommendations hold a lot of weight with me and because I like to name drop.
It was compared to “Eat Pray Love” during book club and for some that was an instant turn off. For the rest of us, it was a reminder of the kind of read it was, a self-indulgent journey to find oneself after troubles of her own making. I hadn’t finished reading by the time book club came around, but I went and finished the book anyway.
I guess, if there is any take-away from the book, it’s that I’d like to read “Pacific Crest Trail, Volume I: California”.
