Good, not amazing but decently good. I have two artificial hips so I was attracted to the book based on the fact I’m somewhat “disabled” but love to hike. I can’t remember lots of it cause it was a little unremarkable, but I remember enjoying it enough to finish the book, which I will not do if I’m hating it.
