This story reminds me of Thoreau's words, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." It is bittersweet, but I enjoyed it.
Very soothing. An extraordinary experience of relationships, loves, regrets and forgiveness! I loved this pilgrimage!! I highly recommend this novel
Heartbreaking story that is ever so funny. You grow to love Harold and following along on his adventure makes you feel like you know him and feel his pain and pleasure.
A sublime book, with a sublime performance by well - known character actor Jim Broadbent. The lives of ordinary people,. Only they are not. They are simple, and complex, and downright extraordinary all at the same time. And they remain unresolvedly human. What they go through ranges from reassuringly familiar, to bone-crushinly brutal on an emotional level. yet nothing seems contrived or manipulative. An incredible gem.
Enjoyed this very interesting story of a wonderful journey of introspection, grief and reconciliation. Loved the ending! It had humor and sadness.
