“A Short Walk to the Edge of Life” was too long

1 Star
REVIEW: A Short Walk to the Edge of Life: How My Simple Adventure Became a Dance with Death – and Taught Me What Really Matters by Scott Hubbartt

I hate to be pessimistic…
I mean the premise of this book sounded really good—a lost man finds his way home.
But unfortunately, I could not connect with the author (and I fully admit I am not a hiker), nor his writing style. I had to force my way through reading this book. Now if you are an outdoor lover and like a good hiking story, this book may be for you, but for me, I was ready to turn back as soon as I started up the hill. The hike through it was too hard and long. 

*I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this unbiased review.
