Held my interestI was actually surprised the story interested me as much as it did, and kept me interested the entire time It s a true story about a hitchhiking adventure the author experienced during a year of his life in his mid twenties, traveling across Canada into Alaska and his return to Canada If the story was professionally edited, I would ve given it a five star rating It was entertaining, though provoking, and even had a bit of suspense Other than it needing a good solid editor for flow, grammar, some missing elements, and specifically punctuation, it was quite enjoyable I m not a fan of memoirs, usually even famous people s however, this hitchhiking excursion of Matt s was definitely a worthwhile read. This book is very well written and captivating It drew me in from the first line and I couldnt put it down I loved that it was based in Canada and gave it a real home feel It talked about ways of life that I didnt realize still existed.It reminded me quite a bit of the book into the wild but with a of a friendlier vibe, and less soul searching and enjoying the adventure I ve never been much of a traveler but this book gave me a want to venture out and explore the country This book was a great way to live vicariously through the author s experience of hitchhiking across Canada and into Alaska He definitely had some memorable experiences He saw some great places and met lots of interesting people I liked that the author was candid about the stupid choices he made from time to time I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway Yay A blow by blow account of experiences most will never live through Matt demonstrates that you can be in the moment and learn the lessons provided by life when you re prepared to step outside your comfort zone I actively sought out time to read this book, wanting to know what was about to happen, and with who, in the next chapter Now, I m off to book a flight to Canada Really nice book, easy to read and fun amazing as the protagonist manages to end his journey after so much happening to him Excellent book , I couldn t put it down. This is quite a book about life choices and philosophy No matter what challenges you are facing in life, this book might open your eyes to what you could accomplish if you stepped out of your comfort zone In many ways this tale of hitchhiking is as important as a book of philosophy as it is a true life tale Very few people would have the guts to take the journey that the author takes It has been said before, but it is worth saying again it is much better and safer for people to live this trip vicariously through the reading of this book Not many people on this side of sanity would ever think of camping in a tent in Denali without any supplies or bear spray so getting to read someone doing it is enlightening I found the book an enjoyable read and one that I would recommend to people who enjoy adventure About as well done version of a life tale as I have ever read My issues with this book went from the subtle to starker First, for someone to say they are hitchhiking across Canada but starting in Sudbury instead of Newfoundland is, at least, disingenuous Geographically speaking, that is hitching halfway across Canada My bigger issue is Heidi Who exactly was Heidi to the author Friend Lover What happened to Heidi I half expected to see an author bio after that stated that he and Heidi were married with a couple of kids I was left in the end wondering what the heck happened to Heidi My Rating 4.5 starsReviewed by Mr NThis review first appeared `READ E-PUB ☠ The Hitchhiker Man ⇫ When You Re Willing To Step Outside Your Comfort Zone, The World Awaits In , Matt Fox A Recent Graduate Who Studied Strategic Decision Making In University Found Himself Alone On The Side Of A Highway With No Plan Other Than To See Where His Thumb And The Road Would Take Him For The Next Two Years, He Would Travel Across Canada To Alaska And Back, Experiencing Life In A Way Most People Never Will A Life Beyond His Comfort Zone Along The Way, He Encounters Adventures He Never Imagined Sleeping Under The Stars, Sneaking Into Drug Fueled Music Festivals, And Working At Ski Resorts And Local Farms To Earn Enough For His Next Meal He Also Confronts Danger And His Own Mortality From A Life Threatening Injury In Whistler, To A Confessed Murderer In Banff, To A Hungry Grizzly In Alaska But Most Importantly, Fox Learns That Life Isn T About Getting To The Destination, But Enjoying Each Moment Along The Way From Feeling Like An Invisible Outcast On Day One To A Man Comfortable In His Own Skin No Matter The Circumstance, The Hitchhiker Man Is The Unforgettable Story Of How One Man Got Lost On The Road, And Ultimately Found Himself The Sound Of Something Breathing Deeply Woke Me Up From My Sleep The Strange Noise Provided A Quick Reminder That I Was Camping In Denali National Park Six Million Acres Of Raw Alaskan Wilderness I Held My Breath And Hoped That Whatever Was Beyond The Thin Fabric Wall Would Go Away The Tent Shook Violently I Looked Around, But I Couldn T See In The Pitch Black Night Then The Tent Became Still Again I Could Hear The Creature S Claws Tear The Thick Alaskan Moss As It Circled Us I Hoped It Wasn T A Grizzly, But I Had Seen So Many That Morning There Was No Doubt That It Had To Be My Friend Heidi Was Sleeping Peacefully Beside Me, Unaware Of The Dire Situation We Were In I Couldn T Decide If I Should Wake Her Or Let Her Sleep Then The Tent Shook Again She Had To Know It Might Be The Last Time We Speak I Remembered The Girl Who Had Given Us A Ride That Morning Who Had Insisted That We Got Bear Spray She Took Us To The Store To Buy Some It Was Thirty Dollars, But I Only Had Fifty To My Name, So I Left It On The Shelf It Seemed Like The Biggest Mistake Of My Life How Did I End Up In Alaska In The First Place I Thought When Only A Year Before I Had Been Living A Normal Middle Class Life Near Toronto One Decision To Go Hitchhiking Had Changed The Path Of My Life Forever But I Had No Regrets For The Decisions I Had Made I Had Chosen What I Thought Was The Right Path For Me And Perhaps That Path Had Finally Come To Its End I Said Goodbye To The Ones I Loved Then Thanked The Universe For The Life I Had Lived Before Sitting And Waiting In Silence
