I don't usually enjoy "poor me" books. Wild brought something new. I enjoyed the Strayer's writing style, she seemed a good friend. What really stirred me was my parallel trip out west just a year or two before her trek. This book helped me relive and remember again the events of my life over a 5 week driving trip from Chicago to Washington to California and back to Chicago. Something events were questionable, but I appreciated that she built up anticipation for the worst and the reality didn't necessary go that way.
