Explanation of the Book:

“The Hike just works. It’s like early, good Chuck Palahniuk. . . . Magary underhands a twist in at the end that hits you like a sharp jab at the bell. . . . It’s just that good.” —NPR.org “A page-turner. . . . Inventive, funny. . . . Quietly profound and touching.”—BoingBoing From the author of The Postmortal, a fantasy saga unlike any you’ve read before, weaving elements of folk tales and video games into a riveting, unforgettable adventure of what a man will endure to return to his family When Ben, a suburban family man, takes a business trip to rural Pennsylvania, he decides to spend the afternoon before his dinner meeting on a short hike. Once he sets out into the woods behind his hotel, he quickly comes to realize that the path he has chosen cannot be given up easily. With no choice but to move forward, Ben finds himself falling deeper and deeper into a world of man-eating giants, bizarre demons, and colossal insects. On a quest of epic, life-or-death proportions, Ben finds help comes in some of the most unexpected forms, including a profane crustacean and a variety of magical objects, tools, and potions. Desperate to return to his family, Ben is determined to track down the “Producer,” the creator of the world in which he is being held hostage and the only one who can free him from the path. At once bitingly funny and emotionally absorbing, Magary’s novel is a remarkably unique addition to the contemporary fantasy genre, one that draws as easily from the world of classic folk tales as it does from video games. In The Hike, Magary takes readers on a daring odyssey away from our day-to-day grind and transports them into an enthralling world propelled by heart, imagination, and survival.

Explanation of the Book:

If it's not about the hike, then what is it about? It's about inspiration. It's about motivation. It's about how two fifty-something women took on an enormous challenge and met it with courage and conviction—and about how you can do the same, no matter what challenges you face. It's Not About the Hike tells the story of Nancy Sporborg and Pat Piper, two non-hikers who decide to climb the sixty-seven highest mountains in New England. In the process, they discover inner reserves of strength, they take friendship to new heights, and they journey to the summits of mountains and into the depths of their beings. This collection of Sporborg's hike reports shows readers how to move out of their comfort zones and ride the “grace wave” toward their dreams.

Explanation of the Book:

For those of us who have witnessed a loved one suffer and been able to do nothing about it, this book is for you. For those of us who have felt depression and helplessness in the face of grief, this book is for you. For those of us who believe that their faith in life can be renewed in an incredible way, this book is for you. For those who believe in miracles that happen every day, this book is for you. This is the amazing, true, and personal story of an ordinary Midwestern woman who goes through life experiences, good and bad. In her darkest days and in the grip of despair, she has an extraordinary experience that is unexplainable in many ways. If you think that in the end, love is the only thing left, it’s because it is. If you think that the universe behaves in mysterious ways, it’s because it does. A story like this will help you understand and answer many questions, but like any good tale, it will lead to more. Join Laurie in her journey that changes her life forever as she learns things about her loved ones she never would have guessed and as her faith and inner peace grow in unexpected ways. As she discovers her courage, her limits, her strengths, and herself again, she will never be the same, and neither will you.
