(Edit: I probably shoud've posted this in non-fiction, but it's a good book, period.) I got the recommendation for it from a friend. Personally, I read more fiction than non-fiction, and I wasn't sure I'd like this book, but I found it extraordinary. Well-written and easy to connect with the author.
The clarity of Ms. Strayed’s prose, and thus of her person, makes her story, in its quiet way, nearly as riveting an adventure narrative as Jon Krakauer’s two “Into” books: those matey fraternal twins, “Into the Wild” and “Into Thin Air.”
