Id There was a lot f detailed descriptions f meals and towns along the PCT and that became distractingly repetitive #about halfway through the book i also felt #halfway through the book I also felt if I lost my connection to Carrot s story as soon as her relationship with Ramen startedI spent that part f the book thinking WHYYYYYYY a lot I have a lot Zhang Xin: On the Return to China of respect for Carrot and what she accomplished and I will probably checkut her ther writing but I was disappointed by this book As much as I enjoy reading

The She saidI say exchanges had me practically clawing at my face Then there s her insane need to repeat words three times every few paragraphs no exaggeration Hike Hike Hike Shower Shower Shower

food aside I ll be stunned if there are 100 different words used in this bookThirdly this book is about meals and the people she meets versus the trail itself I also didn t expect so muchf it to be
