This book starts off as a tiny creek that builds to a majestic river carrying deep truths about the human experience. It is a deceptively simple story, woven with great skill, so that the reader's understanding, as well as that of the characters, emerges only at l the last few moments.. No manipulative plot twists, no misdirection gimmicks, no pot boilers. The writing is simple, graceful, quiet poetry, and the reader (listener) is pulled relentlessly on a strange journey, where much is revealed about what it is to be human, and mortal, and lost, and found.

A Slow paced story that was appreciated at the end. Makes you think about the impact of small and big events in your life. The story builds slowly. Worth a listen.
This was an awesome book. James Broadbent brought the characters to life. I laughed and cried as they struggled and triumphed. Splendid!
Great writing, so funny and profound. The characters were endearing, and my heart ached towards the end. Brilliant performance by Jim Broadbent. Highly recommend.
I felt like I went on his walking pilgrimage with him. The pace was leisurely and Harold Fry's awakening was fun to follow.
No, I listened to it while driving. It was always great to pick it up where I left off.
