    Inhaltsangabe

    Wild is a powerful, blazingly honest memoir: the story of an 1100-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe - and built her back up again.

    At 22, 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: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Strayed faced down rattlesnakes and black bears, intense heat and record snowfalls, and both the beauty and loneliness of the trail. Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “No one can write like Cheryl Strayed. Wild is one of the most unflinching and emotionally honest books I've read in a long time. It is about forgiveness and grief, bravery and hope. It is unforgettable.” (Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle)
    “While reading Cheryl Strayed’s stunning book about her arduous solo journey along the Pacific Crest Trail, I kept asking myself - what would I do if I were stripped bare of everything - money, job, community, even family and love? Thoreau once said, ‘In wildness is the preservation of the world.’ For Strayed, it is clear that in wildness was the preservation of her soul. She reminds us, in her lyrical and courageous memoir Wild, of what it means to be fully alive, even in the face of catastrophe, physical and psychic hardship, and loss." (Mira Bartók, author of The Memory Palace)
    “Cheryl Strayed can sure tell a story. In Wild, she describes her journey from despair to transcendence with honesty, humor, and heart-cracking poignancy. This is a great book.” (Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia and Seeking Peace)

    Beautiful story and and vivid writing style

    I usually don’t listen to this kind of “romantic” story, but wild is truly beautiful. Her ability to tell stories is great and she connects current and past events in a way that really makes you understand each character and wanna know more about each and every next step.

    I had expected more

    Not really touching, not suspenseful, not adventurous. By far not dramatic. Alll the more a seemingly authentic account. But it's not educative or suited to prepare for one's own hike. Might be suitable as a nice backdrop during boring or strenuous hikes to keep the mind on something.

    Empowering, and exhilaratingly so

    I had no clear idea of the contents of this book except the summary and the knowledge that Bernadette Dunne would deliver an outstanding performance.
    And I got what I expected, and much more than that. Cheryl Stayed’s way of letting you into all if her thoughts and her way of dealing with the trauma she suffered opens up a new perspective on life.
    Maybe it’s me and the way I read (or listen to) books, but I felt like I had walked alongside her, seeing what she had. Granted, having lived in California for a while and spending a little time in the Sierra helped to set the mood, but still, this book is (to me personally) exceptional. And I am very glad I came across it.

    Amazing story

    Didn't we all think about embarking on a journey in solitude to find our truest selfes, but were stopped by doubts and endless reasons why not to? This is an amazing story about a woman who, with little money and no backup, just did what most dream about and the countless adventures she had on the way.
