User reviews about the book

  • Laugh out loud reading

    By sparticus Norticus
    The only other author who I have read who makes me laugh out loud is the late great political satirist Art Buchwald. Bill Bryson is a great storyteller. His interweaving of fact fantasy and fiction makes for truly enjoyable times. I find his and Katzs' quips to repeatedly cause bouts of gut busting laughter. Read this book near people who need cheering up. Do not read this book while drinking beverages unless you want to spray a mouthful or worse a nose full at your nearby surroundings.
  • Disappointed

    By LambertM
    Very disappointed. I agree with another reviewer in saying that it was difficult to finish after you realize he gave up. Not worth my money.
  • The Best Book You Will Ever Read

    By RedRoseAlways
    I am still laughing at Bryson's witty, hilarious description of moose!!!! Best book ever. Period. As always, Bryson always writes the most informative, fact filled, entertaining book on the market.
  • Waste of time

    By Jenx7
    You wouldn't let a stranger speak to you for an hour about his weak attempt to hike the trail. Don't waste time with this essay.
  • Walk in the Woods

    By Resq449
    Humorous, thought provoking, and delightfully descriptive. I could almost feel blisters popping up on my feet, or the strain of a heavy pack. The crisp clean smell of forests and wooded streams and facts were blended into am armchair adventure for all ages.
  • A Walk in the Woods

    A great mix of humor and history.
  • This book is terrible.

    By TD85936
    I am ashamed I paid for this. What a waste of money.
  • Tedious

    By Mont Joi
    Rather boring and uninspiring. I kept waiting for the exciting part to take place, but it never transpired.
  • A very enjoyable read

    By lilyperiwinkle
    I really enjoyed this, very humorous!
  • Dull

    By Vike99
    Started out ok but could not finish it when i realized neither would the author. Appropriate title - just a walk in the woods.
