March 2020: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson


This was my first Bryson book and I found his writing style humourous and easy-going (and a fairly large font - perhaps to cater for those who need glasses!?). A Walk in the Woods is the product of Bryson stumbling upon the Appalachian Trail in the US; the longest continuous footpath in the world, stretching the length of the East Coast of America.


Bryson sets off with a calamity-prone friend to hike various sections of this 2,200 trail. The synopsis stays:


"Facing savage weather, merciless insects, unreliable maps and a fickle companion whose profoundest wish was to go to a motel and watch The X-Files, Bryson gamely struggled through the wilds to achieve a lifetime's ambition - not to die in the outdoors."


A film version of the film was also made, featuring Robert Redford. You can watch the trailer below.
