VERDICT: Should read
2. Wild by Cheryl Strayed
I must confess: I haven’t finished this one. It’s pretty dense. I’ve been working on it for over 2 months and can’t seem to ‘get into’ it. Wild chronicles Strayed’s journey through herself & her demons as well as hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Lost on the trail, Strayed found herself again. While very interesting, the book reads at a medium pace. Personally, maintaining interest in this book has been an issue. In the mean time, I have re-shelved this book with the hope to return to it later in the year. Perhaps I will be more receptive of its prose.
VERDICT: Maybe read
