    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.

    In the aftermath of a family tragedy, Mike Bowditch has left the Maine Warden Service and is working as a fishing guide in the North Woods. But when his mentor Sgt. Kathy Frost is forced to kill a troubled war veteran in an apparent case of “suicide by cop,” he begins having second thoughts about his decision. Now Kathy finds herself the target of a government inquiry and outrage from the dead soldier’s platoon mates. Soon she finds herself in the sights of a sniper, as well.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I cannot imagine why this has been so highly rated. The story is leaden, characters dull and narration lacking in any variety or consistency. Compared to some stories and narration it is sorely lacking.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, I could play it at twice the speed so it lasted half as long.
