Who was your favorite character and why?
AWOL's experience allows the reader to feel like they are traveling step-by-step with him on his journey.
Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Lane’s performances?
The narrator did not seem like the correct choice for this story. He had little-to-no inflection about any of the experiences on the Trail.
Any additional comments?
Any readers/listeners who liked Bill Bryson's "Walk in the Woods" might want to check out this book, but they should also be aware that this is a serious Trail journal. There are humorous moments in the book, but that's not the point of this book. Anyone who is serious about hiking the AT should probably check this book out, it is quite helpful.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
As an avid hiker / backpacker who lives in the Appalachian mountains I found this book to be an enjoyable account of hiking the AT but I was constantly aware of the author's lack of descriptions about the natural world around him. It was just odd. These mountains are incredibly beautiful and, at times, simply awe inspiring. It would have been far more enjoyable if the author had told us more about the landscape he was traveling through. This book is more about the act of hiking and the people he encountered than it is about the trail or the beautiful mountains it passes through. This made the book seem a bit one dimensional to me. I do not intend for this review to be a slam or to take away from the positive reviews the book has rightfully earned. I guess I could say it's like reading a book about trout fishing without any meaningful descriptions of the trout. Enjoyable.....but leaves too much to the imagination.
Would you be willing to try another book from David Miller? Why or why not?
What aspect of Christopher Lane’s performance would you have changed?

I loved davids account of his travels on the trail, amongst the best diary stories I've read in a very long while, a hearty well done.
