The performance was as good as could be expected. However, the story itself was difficult to stay tuned to. The first half of the story left me confused and uncertain about the direction of the story. As the second half evolved, it clearly wasn't something in which I had any interest.
I wouldn't have chosen this if I'd understood the true nature of the story.
Not much the narrator could do with the story,
There is meaning in every word with crafted prose and a compelling story. An unexpressive man receives a letter and takes a walk across England, hoping to redeem himself in the eyes of a friend he never thanked. We walk with Harold and everyone he meets along the way - even the dog. Life, death, friendship, love and fear intermingle in a story that keeps the listener wanting to take one more minute to find out what's around the next bend.
Maureen was my favorite character. Flawed, blaming, and bound up by the things of life while hidden away in her house of grief, she slowly emerges as a lively and loving woman. We meet her as she is; then travel back to who she was, eventually knowing that she can be both and still be loved and lovable.
Every man's journey to life.
