I know it looks like I am on a “chic lit” binge at the moment, but I actually read this book a few years ago. At that time I was binging on books about people sojourning in the woods. This is the book that severed as dessert for that binge. If by some seriously strange turn of events, I ever found myself responsible for teaching a course on memoir writing I would use this book. I found it all powerfully staged. I have one major complaint about this book. It was published six years after Eat Pray Love, and I am personally convinced her editor or somebody had the chapter added. It’s a rather pointless chapter. But I really love this book. I also joke every time this book is discussed that a better subtitle would be “Cheryl Makes Questionable Choices.” Rock on oh Queen of the PCT.
