Description

Whether she is contemplating the history of walking as a cultural and political experience over the past 200 years (Wanderlust), or using the life of photographer Eadweard Muybridge as a lens to discuss the transformations of space and time in late 19th-century America (River of Shadows), Rebecca Solnit has emerged as an inventive and original writer whose mind is daring in the connections it makes. A Field Guide to Getting Lost draws on emblematic moments and relationships in Solnit's own life to explore issues of wandering, being lost, and the uses of the unknown. The result is a distinctive, stimulating, and poignant voyage of discovery.

meditation on the 'other' side of life

So much of American culture is focused on 'doing' on 'success' on 'accomplishment' on 'finding our place', stroking our ego, 'making things happen'. All of which can be exhausting, frustrating, futile or ego deflating as much as it is motivation to make our lives better. This is a very refreshing and often passionate look at the other side. The benefits and pleasures, the meaning and value of letting go, of letting things happen, of wandering off, or getting lost. There are surprises, insights, relief and challenges in those processes also. This book offers us new ways of thinking, feeling and understanding our lives. In all our lives, I presume, there are in mine, times I see as failure, as cop out, as less than I could have, should have been. This perspective gives me a way to reframe some of those experiences for my own benefit, to see their value, to forgive myself, to breathe deeper. Besides that it is very well written and a pleasure to listen to.

poor narration

I listen to audiobooks as I work, so it's very helpful if the narrator has some energy and inflections in the reading. For this book though, I possibly couldn't understand what the narrator was saying because of her monotonous voice. I couldn't finish the book.

Made me sleepy

I love Rebecca Solnit's writing, and I especially love when the audio book is narrated by the author them self. The only critic I have is Solnit's voice is so soft my mind would drift from the story and wander, making me a bit sleepy.

Such high hopes, dashed!

I had really high hopes for this book. I thought it was very poetic until I realized it wasn’t good enough to be poetry and lyric, but the prose wasn’t good either. I thought her voice was great until it started to grate on me and then she started fumbling with her own words and then the cuts got sloppier and sloppier. I couldn’t even finish it...

Why did they let her read this?

The author's lilting, soft voice took away from her authority. I would find myself daydreaming and at the end, struggled with why she wrote the last chapter. I am returning the audiobook to purchase a hardcopy. Her thoughts are gorgeous and insightful but it is all lost here.

Not a Field Guide to Anything but Rambling

I learned absolutely nothing from this audiobook, sadly. I can't recommend you waste your time reading.

needs a more compelling reader...

... To express in articulate Ms Solnit's compelling prose. I found myself drifting even when I was deliberately trying to pay attention. The good news is that I've bought the book and it is definitely worth reading!

Awful, the author is not fit to narrate audiobooks

The author's voice completely ruined it for me, I couldn't even finish the first chapter. The voice is so slow and sleepy and lacking any emphasis anywhere, that I just couldn't bear it. I was really excited about the book and its topic and I'm sure the print version would be very interesting to read. The audioversion read by the author is horrible.

My only complaint, soft spoken reader.

She spoke so softly it was hard to hear clearly what she was saying without turning the volume all the way up.

My favorite book

This is one of those books that I return to again and again. Rebecca Solnit is one of the great American thinkers of our time, and this book is a treasure.

This Book deserves a better speaker!

It´s a pity that the author decided to read this book herself. It`s spoken in a monotone voice, it sounds both whiny and droning to me. I gave up listening in the first chapter and prefer to read it old-style, when I have the time. I gave the book the benefit of the doubt and so 5 stars. The audio-version deserves only one, imo.
