Long car rides have rekindled my love for 'reading' I like a good history book, thriller and - most importantly - zombie fiction.
I don't know if there is a book comparable to Harold Fry. This is unique in almost every way (at least in my reading history). It's a story of redemption, restoration and healing... and I guess a warning against burying your feelings.
Two scenes really caught me. Harold and Queenie, and Harold and his wife at the end. Giving more details would ruin the story but, needless to say, wonderful!
Harold Fry is the most memorable character. You journey with him and, through his ups and downs, you discover how important it is to keep the most important things important in your life.
Busy mom and wife who listens to audiobooks whenever I am in my vehicle. Rarely do I listen to the radio.
Loved the narrator and story line. Definitely worth the time to listen to! Definitely worth the money.
The story builds a tad slow but is so intriguing. I found myself cheering for Harold and egging him on to finish his walk. The cast of characters Harold meets and the human interaction that happens between them is a story within a story. great listen!
Yes. Jim Broadbent's voice and accent were perfect - a marvelous performance. The writing was poetic at several points and I would like to copy down some of the quotes. It was also a comforting story in many ways.
Harold. He was relatable and endearing.
He brought emotion into the characters' voices, especially Harold's. I'm american and I'm glad my memory of this story will be in a British voice. He was a perfect choice.
Yes - both. Not many audiobooks have that effect on me.
A wonderful sorry of self-discovery, determination, love, and redemption. Loved every step of this pilgrimage....even the self-serving tag alongs.
