Book Review: Wild

A friend of mine lent me their copy of Wild to read before the movie hit theaters. Our plan was to both read the book and then have a date night with our honeys to see the movie.  I finished the book and unfortunately we never had a date night because theaters up to 100 miles away weren't showing the movie!  Weird....so I recently saw it on the airplane on the way home from Europe.  It was really good but I liked the book better.  The book was more detailed and told more of Cheryl's story.  Ok so enough about the movie and lets review the book!

I loved the book although the beginning when she talked and described so well about the loss and the feelings she had of her mom passing really effected me.  It was so down and just desperate I felt her pain like it was my own.  I even had a heart-to-heart with my mom making sure she knew just how much I loved her.  Whew!! After I got past that the book was really good.  I felt it drug at times but overall I loved the feeling like I was going through the journey with her. The book is great for women and anyone looking for themselves.  I have been there and although I didn't hike 1000 miles in all sorts of severe conditions and terrains I did live 8000 miles away from home for 3 years and it was the perfect time to help me discover who Megan was/is.

If you haven't read Wild DO IT!!!

Amazon Synopsis:
At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
