This is a hilarious read! Bryson has such a way with making you laugh. I loved all the facts about hiking the AT that he shares -- I listed to the audiobook while running every morning in the woods, so actually felt like I shared the journey. The character caricatures are very likable, the relationship with Katz comes through very nicely too. The only tiny complaint would be that the last third seems to drag a little and the end is abrupt. Lovely book!
