The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (Harold Fry, #1)

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is an alternative road trip, following Harold Fry on his emotionally and physically demanding journey. The early stages of the journey seemed to take forever, that sense that you can get when you have been driving for miles, but are still in places you recognise. You feel you should be far further away than you are. Are we still in the South West? The narrative perfectly reflects the stream of consciousness that relentlessly travels through our heads as we march on; our memories pacing with our steps. This was a slow exhausting walk for Harold in every sense as his history is revealed at the same pace. He is totally unprepared for his journeys and like life, his arrival at the final destination wasn’t exactly ‘happy ever after’ . It was realistic; and that was good.
