    (198)

    When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof, or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking - to save someone else's life.

    Carol says: "What a wonderful story!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - I already have. The story is well written, big belly laugh funny at times and culminates into the telling of the Fry family's very sad past.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry?

    The girl from the garage visiting Harold's wife


    What does Jim Broadbent bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm not sure - but I did picture Harold Fry in my head as someone that looks like Jim Broadbent!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not an extreme reaction, i did get teary towards the end as more of the Fry's history was revealed, but the book also make me laugh quite a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    A really worthwhile read, I put my ear phones on and listened while I and cleaned out cupboards, I wanted to keep listening so I kept on cleaning!
