A Walk in the Woods

Finally saw the incredibly lovely ‘A Walk in the Woods’ film. I’ve already read the book, and I won’t lie it didn’t exactly meet my expectations, but it did fulfil my wish to see at least one of Bill Bryson’s books on screen. 

The characters were superbly well portrayed and casting was perfect, especially Kristen Schaal. Yet there was something missing – it was strange not being able to hear Bill Bryson’s wit at the speed I’m used to reading. The slow pace was representative of their walking, I’ll give you that, but in my opinion it might have been nice for a few more montages to pull it along. I am a big fan of a good montage, so that might just be me though. 

All in all, I enjoyed it and although it didn’t set the world on fire, it did have me reaching for these as soon as I got home. 

Has anyone else seen it? How did you find it?
