"Choke-on-your-coffee funny" * Washington Post * "This is a seriously funny book" -- Sue Townsend * The Sunday Times * "Short of doing it yourself, the best way of escaping into nature is to read a book like A Walk in the Woods... Mr Bryson has met this challenge with zest and considerable humor... a funny book, full of dry humor... the reader is rarely anything but exhilarated" * The New York Times * "Entertaining and often illuminating" -- Paul Johnson * Sunday Telegraph * "Irreverent, wildly funny, crowded with anecdotes and observation" * Ideal Home *
