Teaser Tuesday: Wild (again)

Teaser Tuesday post for 1 September 2015
from Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed

Wild by Cheryl Strayed
She was optimistic to an annoying degree, given to saying those stupid things:  We're not poor because we're rich in love! Or When one door closes, another one opens.  Which always, for a reason I couldn't quite pin down, made me want to throttle her, even when she was dying and her optimism briefly and desolately expressed itself in the belief that in fact she wouldn't die, so long as she drank a tremendous amount of wheatgrass juice.

    You don’t say, are you liking the book? I’m not sure if it’s for me.

      It’s interesting. She does a good job of mixing her past into the story of her time on the trail. I’m not crazy about some of the language, but I suppose some will find it “real”.

    I had pretty much dismissed reading this one, but now, with your excerpt, I am leaning toward it. I like the descriptions. Thanks for sharing…and here’s mine: “DRIVING LESSONS”

    My mom really enjoyed this one, but I haven’t been able to drum up any interest in it. Have you seen the movie? I hear that was good too. I haven’t seen it though.

      I haven’t seen it. It doesn’t git my idea of one I have to see on the big screen. The book is okay. I wouldn’t have read it if a friend hadn’t loaned it to me. She is very blunt about her past and current thoughts and situations…about what led to her making the hike.
