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.

Harold Fry has retired and is living a beige existence co-existing with his wife. When he receives a letter from an old colleague, telling him she’s dying, he writes back immediately. When he misses the mailman, he resolves to walk to the next village where there’s a post office - and he just keeps walking, away from his lonely loveless life and towards Queenie, his old friend. Along the way he discovers the kindness of strangers, the fickle nature of instant fame and ultimately how to live again before it’s too late. Quirky, charming and you’ll either love it or hate it.

This really sounds like my kind of story something that has it all, an uncommercialised story that is different and will prove to be a rewarding read that relates to all aspects of the emotions of human nature

The Unlikely Pilgramage of Harold Fry

This book starts off slow but draws the reader into the heart felt story. Written with a clear understanding of raw emotions and a life time of hurt feelings and misunderstandings. I felt compelled to keep reading as I wished Harold a happy ending, yes it has a lovely ending. Thoughly enjoyed this book.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Harold Fry is an ordinary man full of self doubt however he discovers an inner strengh which takes him on an amazing journey. Harold examines his life in such a heart rendering manner, it is very moving and the raw emotions diplicted really draw the reader in to the story.
An unusual story showing true love can withstand anything and ultimately grow stonger. I started reading doubtful I would finish but the story drew me in and I couldn't put it down.

I loved this boook. It got a wee bit long about 2/3 of the way through but that was easy to skim through. The story flowed well and the end was perfect. A good holiday book.
