A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

A Walk in the Woods - Bill Bryson Slighter than I remembered, and not as funny. Bryson's voice is engaging and endearing, his anecdotes about the trail and the surrounding history are all well and good- but somehow I finished the book without a real feel for the trail. I'm not sure I can articulate my discontent clearly, but it felt more like an article for Vanity Fair than a real travel memoir.
