“Spectacular. . . . A literary and human triumph.” —The New York Times Book Review
"I was on the edge of my seat. . . . It is just a wild ride of a read . . . stimulating, thought-provoking, soul-enhancing." —Oprah Winfrey, on Wild, first selection of her Book Club 2.0
“Strayed’s language is so vivid, sharp and compelling that you feel the heat of the desert, the frigid ice of the High Sierra, and the breathtaking power of one remarkable woman finding her way—and herself—one brave step at a time.” —People (4 stars)
"An addictive, gorgeous book that not only entertains, but leaves us the better for having read it. . . . Strayed is a formidable talent." —The Boston Globe
"One of the most original, heartbreaking, and beautiful American memoirs in years. . . . Awe-inspiring." —NPR Books
“Cinematic. . . . A rich, riveting story. . . . Our verdict: A.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Pretty much obliterated me. I was reduced, during the book’s final third, to puddle-eyed cretinism. . . . As loose and sexy and dark as an early Lucinda Williams song. It’s got a punk spirit and makes an earthy and American sound. . . . The cumulative welling up I experienced during Wild was partly a response to that too infrequent sight: that of a writer finding her voice, and sustaining it, right in front of your eyes.” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times
“Brave seems like the right word to sum up this woman and her book. . . . Strayed’s journey is exceptional.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“One of the best books I’ve read in the last five or ten years. . . . Wild is angry, brave, sad, self-knowing, redemptive, raw, compelling, and brilliantly written, and I think it’s destined to be loved by a lot of people, men and women, for a very long time.” —Nick Hornby
“Devastating and glorious. . . . By laying bare a great unspoken truth of adulthood—that many things in life don’t turn out the way you want them to, and that you can and must live through them anyway—Wild feels real in many ways that many books about ‘finding oneself’ . . . do not.” —Slate
“Incisive and telling. . . . [Strayed] has the ineffable gift every writer longs for of saying exactly what she means in lines that are both succinct and poetic. . . . an inborn talent for articulating angst and the gratefulness that comes when we overcome it.” —The Washington Post
“Vivid, touching and ultimately inspiring account of a life unraveling and of the journey that put it back together.” —The Wall Street Journal
“Strayed . . . catalogs her epic hike . . . with a raw emotional power that makes the book difficult to put down. . . . In walking, and finally, years later, in writing, Strayed finds her way again. And her path is as dazzlingly beautiful as it is tragic.” —Los Angeles Times
“A fearless story, told in honest prose that is wildly lyrical as often as it is dirtily physical.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
“This isn’t Cinderella in hiking boots, it’s a woman coming out of heartbreak, darkness and bad decisions with a clear view of where she has been. . . . There are adventures and characters aplenty, from heartwarming to dangerous, but Strayed resists the temptation to overplay or sweeten such moments. Her pacing is impeccable as she captures her impressive journey.” —The Seattle Times
“Strayed’s journey was at least as transcendent as it was turbulent. She faced down hunger, thirst, injury, fatigue, boredom, loss, bad weather, and wild animals. Yet she also reached new levels of joy, accomplishment, courage, peace, and found extraordinary companionship.” —The Christian Science Monitor
“Strayed writes a crisp scene; her sentences hum with energy. She can describe a trail-parched yearning for Snapple like no writer I know. . . . It becomes impossible not to root for her.” —The Plain Dealer
“Brilliant. . . . Cheryl Strayed emerges from her grief-stricken journey as a practitioner of a rare and vital vocation. She has become an intrepid cartographer of the human heart.” —Houston Chronicle
“A deeply honest memoir about mother and daughter, solitude and courage, and regaining footing one step at a time.” —Vogue
“This is a big, brave, break-your-heart-and-put-it-back-together-again kind of book. Cheryl Strayed is a courageous, gritty, and deceptively elegant writer. She walked the PCT to find forgiveness, came back with generosity—and now she shares her reward with us. I snorted with laughter, I wept uncontrollably; I don’t even want to know the person who isn’t going to love Wild. This is a beautifully made, utterly realized book.” —Pam Houston, author of Contents May Have Shifted and Cowboys are My Weakness
Strayed's account captures the agonies - both mental and physical - of her incredible journey; how it maddened and terrified her, and how, ultimately, it healed her. Wild is a brutal memoir of survival, grief and redemption: a searing portrayal of life at its lowest ebb and at its highest tide. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

I have read through some comments on this book and I cannot understand how people find it in their heart to judge her for her choices, her thoughts, her feelings and her way of life. How mean it is to talk crap and be full of prejudice just because her choices weren't always the best. No one ever said people are perfect. No one is. I'm as imperfect as you are. She made mistakes. She learned from them. She changed. She got another chance and she took it. Just like every one else in this world. It's really that simple. As humans we make mistakes (no matter how tremendous they are) and that is part of our life lesson so we can learn from them and hopefully be more cautious.
That said, I had a great time reading this book. It wasn't just a PCT guide book from a newbie hiker. It was a life story, well written and so personal that at times I felt like her thoughts weren't meant to be written down on a piece of paper for me to read.
Now I want to hike as well! I wonder how many other people are feeling inspired to do the same. :)
Ich dachte, es müsse ein durch und durch dummes Buch sein - vielleicht in etwa wie "Eat Pray Love", wo Film und Buch gleichermaßen unwichtig sind. Im schlimmsten Fall wie "die Ländersammlerin", d.h. geradezu unerträglich blöde.
Aber ich habe mich in "Der große Trip" getäuscht!
Die Autorin hat etwas zu erzählen, und flüssig schreiben kann sie auch. Ein wenig unbegreiflich ist für mich als kühl-realistische Europäerin, wie sehr der Tod der Mutter die Ich-Erzählerin aus der Bahn geworfen hat, - das klingt für mich doch recht "amerikanisch" übertrieben, naiv und Cheerleader-rosarot.
Aber da die "Selbstfindung" sehr unspektakulär und sehr nachvollziehbar vonstatten geht und auf Küchenkalenderratschläge an den Leser gänzlich verzichtet; da Wanderungsschilderung + Rückblenden sich gut abwechseln, finde ich das Buch insgesamt gut + gut formuliert + lesbar geschrieben und somit gelungen.
Sicher nicht als Lektüre und Anregung für künftige Abenteurer.
Aber als netter, schöner und unanstrengender Schmöker fürs Sofa bekommt das Buch meine persönliche 2+.
