Funny story Sorry sad protagonist and not much action but still, somehow very engaging.As a subculture, the Appalachian Trail is fascinating Would love to get out there and see some of these antics for myself Can t wait to get my hands on book 2 When s it comign out Most enjoyable.I was a bit surprised to find this is fiction loved the characters and the story is very well written definitely kept my attention not a lot of details about the trail, but instead what it takes to make it emotionally. Four stars is a strong rating for this book There were some parts that got confusing and some was written in sentence fragments, which is easily forgiven if you keep in mind it s rustic nature One complaint I have is the excessive use of descriptive bathroom visits I do understand that s a big part of the trail and maybe one general story about the difficulties and challenges of the call of nature But, maybe just an understanding that it happens and should just be left at that However, t Four stars is a strong rating for this book There were some parts that got confusing and some was written in sentence fragments, which is easily forgiven if you keep in mind it s rustic nature One complaint I have is the excessive use of descriptive bathroom visits I do understand that s a big part of the trail and maybe one general story about the difficulties and challenges of the call of nature But, maybe just an understanding that it happens and should just be left at that However, this book gave me EXACTLY what I was looking for in a story about the AT The characters were well established Stumbling Thru: Hike Your Own Hike
