"Bryson is a very funny writer who could wring humor from a clammy sleeping bag." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Short of doing it yourself, the best way of escaping into nature is to read a book like A Walk in the Woods."-The New York Times
"A terribly misguided, and terribly funny tale of adventure.... The yarn is choke-on-your-coffee funny." -The Washington Post
"Bill Bryson could write an essay about dryer lint or fever reducers and still make us laugh out loud." -Chicago Sun-Times
"Delightful." -The Plain Dealer
"It's great adventure, on a human scale, with survivable discomforts, and, happily, everybody goes home afterwards." -Times Picayune
From the Inside Flap
The 2,000-plus-mile trail winds through 14 states, stretching along the east coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. It snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in North America, as well as through some of its most poverty-stricken and primitive backwoods areas.
With his offbeat sensibility, his eye for the absurd, and his laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Bryson recounts his confrontations with nature at its most uncompromising over his five-month journey.
An instant classic, riotously funny, "A Walk in the Woods will add a whole new audience to the legions of Bill Bryson fans.

I would like to read more of his books but seriously don't want a history lesson, so I am unsure weather I will touch about her one of his books, which is a pity, because he is quite funny and good when he is actually telling his story.

The only let down was that I felt the last part of the story was a little rushed but apart from that it is probably one of my favourites of his.
But I have to say overall that I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. I have never been disappointed with his books - if you want to learn something new every day, look no further - just get a Bill Bryson book!
