It was definately a thriller, no real mystery involved. I found it to be well written, some christian themes worked in, so if that turns you off of books you better not read this one. I loved the story and how the main character came to know himself as he dealt with adversity during his hike through the Ozarks.

Loved it! So looking forward to more. From start to finish it was flowing, easy to read, and kept me hooked. You know it's a good read if it meets those criteria.

I liked the story, it took awhile to figure out how everything fit together, but kept rolling along throughout the book. The ending felt a bit rushed, but overall I enjoyed the book.
