Expected some sort of great turn around, revelation, or at least interesting observations. If I wanted a story about hurt footsies, being disappointed in ones self, awkwardly unexciting encounters with wildlife, a poor recording with a lawn mower running in the background, and the rambling of a spoiled millennial Jew I could have done my own autobiographical account of a trek through scenic New Jersey... I had to refill my prescription because I was so stressed at how bad this book is. If I hadn't spent so much money on it I couldn't have forced myself to finish it.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Barach?
The author seems a little tired of reading his book by the time he recorded this book. He also seems to lose his place frequently and repeats a sentence several times.
Any additional comments?
This book probably started out as a story he told friends over beers after he returned from his trip. Unfortunately, like most bar stories it seems like a really good idea at the time to write a book about it, but loses something in the longer form. He tries to intersperse a bit of humor, but even that seems forced. While the trek must have been amazing, the retelling is less impressive.
Good story but awful echo/reverb on the first few chapters made this very hard to listen too
I appreciate the story, but this did not seem like a journey worth writing a book about. Perhaps a blog post with pictures would have sufficed.
