Crisis memoir

After reading and absolutely loving Tiny Beautiful Things, I offered up Wild as a possible book club read, and the ladies in my club agreed to it.  It's Strayed's memoir about losing her mother, having her life go to shit, and deciding to hike the Pacific Crest Trail alone.  I typically don't love the mid-life crisis memoir, but I did like this book.  She's terribly honest and she writes in a way that sticks you hard.  There are a few images from the book that I may never shake.  7/10

- This book really put me in the mind of Krakauer's Into the Wild and Into Thin Air a bit.
