I love this book. It was gifted to me by the owner of The Creekside Paradise, a B&B where I once spent three days convalescing before a steep trek up into the Smoky Mountains. She said she’d found the movie mesmerizing, but the book rather dull, and that I could take it so long as I promised not to bring it back. I’m glad that I did.
When you live out of a pack, each item you carry needs to be worth its weight several times over, and in that way Life of Pididn’t disappoint.
