Publisher's Summary

What do you do when your world ends? At 28 years old, Krista Schlyer sold almost everything she owned and packed the rest of it in a station wagon bound for the American wild. Her two best friends joined her - one a grumpy, grieving introvert, the other a feisty dog - and together they sought out every national park, historic site, forest, and wilderness they could get to before their money ran out or their minds gave in. The journey began as a desperate escape from urban isolation, heartbreak, and despair but became an adventure beyond imagining.
Chronicling their colorful escapade, Almost Anywhere explores the courage, cowardice, and heroics that live in all of us as well as the life of nature and the nature of life. This eloquent and accessible memoir is at once an immersion in the pain of losing someone particularly close and especially young and a healing journey of a broken life given over to the whimsy and humor of living on the road.

Sad to get to the end

What made the experience of listening to Almost Anywhere the most enjoyable?

Enjoyed a story of dealing with grief and healing through nature.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the adventures with her dog and friend. It made me feel like I spent time with friends.

Have you listened to any of Marisa Vitali’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard any of her other performances but enjoyed this one. She adds expression to the characters and made me think the author could be reading it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

At 10 hours it is a little llong for that. I preferred to savor it on my commute to and from work.

So bad I trired to return it

Bad writing, annoyingly overdone adjectives and similes. Annoying narration. It made me angry to listen to it.
