Book Review: Wild by Cheryl Strayed

Wild by Cheryl Strayed

Wild Book CoverThis wildly adventurous book by Cheryl Strayed is filled with hope and inspiration.

At first, I questioned whether I would like this book because it is a biography, and the idea of that genre of books seems dry to me. But, ultimately, I came to love this book because of its authenticity and the passion and emotion you can feel from the author telling her story.

If you have ever experienced a consistent series of unfortunate events, lost someone you love, or have ever felt like the world is against you (aka being a human being), you can relate to this book.

Strayed was able to instill faith and hope in me looking into the future by her reassurance that there is always light at the end of the tunnel and affirmation that amazing things do not just happen to people. Amazing things come with great struggle, require hard, tiring work, and are worth fighting for.

This is a great read in general, but I would especially recommend it for when you are in need of a pick-me-up or inspiration.

Side Note: Cheryl Strayed is originally from Minnesota and writes about her experiences as a Minnesotan and as a student at the U of M, which of course got me excited!
