Dear Bob and Sue Book Review

If you are looking for a light hearted read about exploring some of the National Parks, Dear Bob and Sue is perfect book for you. Bring it with you to the beach or cuddled up by a fire. If you are thinking about exploring some National Parks this is a must read. This book is written a little different then most. In the beginning I was not sure if I would like the format, but I have to say I throughly enjoyed it.  


It is about a husband and wife, Matt and Karen, who are touring 58 of the National Parks.  During their travels they send emails to their friends Bob and Sue.  The book is broken up into sections by the emails they wrote as they visit the various parks.  It is light and at times funny.  The only thing I wish they put in the book was the state they were in, most of them I could figure out.  Since I am not familiar with a lot of the national parks I had a hard time placing some of them.


As I was reading the book I found myself getting lost in it and felt like I was hiking with them or enjoying pizza and a beer with them.  I love the humor and honesty within the book I could compare it to how my husband and I interact and behave at times.

I felt like I was right there with them especially when they were in Alaska as it is one of the places of my bucket list to go. While reading I was fearful I was going to get attack by a bear.   

As I read through the book, i kept thinking I want to visit this park and that park. I kept saying to my husband, “in the book this happened and I would love to go visit this.” I was sad when it was over as I felt like out trip was done. I wanted to continue traveling, hiking, exploring and eating pizza with them.

If you are looking for a light hearted book about traveling the majority of the National Parks I highly recommend you check this book out.

I recently found out that there is a second book titled Dear Bob and Sue: Season 2. I can’t wait to read it.
