An extremely well-written memoir of a brave woman's journey to find herself. I identified with Cheryl so much because my father died when I was 20 and her book made me want to write abut my experiences at that time.
Cheryl's descriptions of the PCT and her incredibly courageous journey of endurance and sheer grit along it, stirred something in me.
I can't wait to see the movie now to see if it measures up.

I have way too much and not enough of to say of this wonderful, insightful, funny, everything book. I love the PCT as a metaphor for really a journey of healing. What a brave person, to just immerse herself in the trail, her thoughts, and personal journey. Along the way She evolves into a stronger being. I so enjoyed this book. It can speak to anyone across the lifespan. I recommend it to all! She totally did " write like a motherfucker"!!!!!!!! ...more

I love the idea of this book: hiking the PCT, hiking as catharsis, literally walking through grief, a sort-of epic episodal wandering through one's life and trail, climbing emotional mountains, etc. I mean there are so many promising themes! But I have to say that the book doesn't live up to the promise. It's not a bad read. And it is certainly a gutsy and honest memoir. Kudos to Strayed for staying true. But I probably won't recommend it often. ...more

Loved it. Liked Tiny Beautiful Things even better. This is written about a young woman who, upon reflection, has learned and grown and healed a great deal. Tiny Beautiful Things, on the other hand, is written by the grown up, who has seen everyone fail, including herself, who has raged and been raged at, who is empty of judgment and trying just to drag the rest of us out of the cave and into the sunlight.

When I started reading, I wasn't overly impressed with the author; she seemed terribly shallow and selfish. After the first few chapters, the hiking, the people she met, the weather...it caught me up and I found it hard to put the book down. I haven't changed my opinion of the author, but overall, I did enjoy the book. ...more
