Product description

Review

Choke-on-your-coffee funny, Washington Post

This is a seriously funny book -- Sue Townsend, The Sunday Times

Short of doing it yourself, the best way of escaping into nature is to read a book like A Walk in the Woods... Mr Bryson has met this challenge with zest and considerable humor... a funny book, full of dry humor... the reader is rarely anything but exhilarated, The New York Times

Entertaining and often illuminating -- Paul Johnson, Sunday Telegraph

Irreverent, wildly funny, crowded with anecdotes and observation, Ideal Home

Review

"Bryson is . . . great company right from the start--a lumbering, droll, neatnik intellectual who comes off as equal parts Garrison Keillor, Michael Kinsley, and . . . Dave Barry...[Readers] may find themselves turning the pages with increasing amusement and anticipation as they discover that they're in the hands of a satirist of the first rank who writes (and walks) with Chaucerian brio."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A terribly misguided and terribly funny tale of adventure...choke-on-your-coffee funny."
--The Washington Post Book World

"A Walk in the Woods is an almost perfect travel book."
--The Boston Globe

"The Appalachian Trail...consists of some five million steps, and Bryson manages to coax a laugh, and often an unexpectedly startling insight, out of every one he traverses...It is hard not to grin idiotically through all 304 pages...sheer comic entertainment."
--Kirkus Reviews
