    I have just browsed through a bunch of reviews that are literally glowing with praise so I feel rather embarrassed that I cannot be enthused about this novelI was really taken in by the premise and rather enjoyed the beginning of the book probably until celebrity hype and disciples befall HaroldFrom that point on I started to find the book predictable if not a little trite even I also think that while I have nothing against a good dose of

    45 but I am feeling generous This is one those books that I call tear jerkers Their common characteristic is that the reader is or less subtly manipulated to feel very sorry for the characters and shed a tear or two or 10 The problem with the genre is that you either fall for the trap or you don't If you don't t

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Locks his long dormant spirit and sense of promise Memories of his first dance with Maureen his wedding day his joy in fatherhood come rushing back to him allowing him to also reconcile the losses and the regrets As for Maureen she finds herself missing Harold for the first time in years And then there is the unfinished business with ueenie Hennessy A novel of unsentimental charm humor and profound insight into the thoughts and feelings we all bury deep within our hearts The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry introduces Rachel Joyce as a wise and utterly irresistible storytelle. Attention all yacht shoe wearers Please unite for this wonderfully heartwarming sometimes heartbreaking tale of loss sorrow and redemptionREVIEW CONTAINS NO SPOILERSFor reasons unimaginable some ahem fair minded readers have offered this cleverly crafted book an oh so generous one star out of five Seriously WTFIt may be true that TUPOHF is likely to be better received by mature readers and would also appeal to Anglophiles who are the wrong side of forty effectively old gits similar to myself but come on Unworldly Englishman Harold Fry a retired brewery salesman pops out to post a sympathy letter to an old work colleague ueenie who resides 627 miles away But instead of doing this he spontaneously heads off in her faraway direction wearing clothes that are better suited for a trip to the local garden centreIn an unconscious attempt to exorcise his own demons his accidental journey somehow becomes an inspirational perhaps heroic pilgrimageThere is something delightfully uixotic about his unrealistic uest and readers of this story will find themselves walking with him in spirit each painful step of the way The crudeness of modernity and the grunge of the great outdoors are the antithesis of his usually disciplined existence the fractiousness of other members of society offers a comedic contrast to Harold s unfailing innocenceJoyce optimistically recognises the kindness of strangers who are happy to contribute to a good cause although because I am English I would have at least expected a box of KFC bones to have been hurled at his head from a passing car or for a farmer to have gurgled Get off my landThis tenderly written novel is the best I ve read all year it will cause you to chuckle from time to time and there s a good chance it will bring a tear to your eyeSo if raw life experiences have left you mature beyond your years or if you re a wrinkled old coffin dodger about to pop your clogs this might be right up your streetAnd please abandon whatever it is you re reading Release your inner Harold and join his pilgrimageImmediately after reading this if you enjoyed Harold s pilgrimage please read its companion book The Love Song of Miss ueenie Hennessy

review ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ô Rachel Joyce

Meet Harold Fry recently retired He lives in a small English village with his wife Maureen who seems irritated by almost everything he does even down to how he butters his toast Little differentiates one day from the next Then one morning the mail arrives and within the stack of uotidian minutiae is a letter addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl from a woman he hasn’t seen or heard from in twenty years ueenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye Harold pens a uick reply and leaving Maureen to her chores heads to the corner mailbox But then as happens in the v. One of my favorite places to read during nice weather is out on my balcony At one point in this book I was out reading sunglasses on to cut the sun s glare and the story gripped my heart to the weeping point Do I go in so my neighbours don t see But I m wearing my sunglasses Yes but the tears are falling from under the sunglasses and rolling down my cheeksI did come in from outside no tissues on my balcony and then I thought if Harold Fry is brave enough to walk so many miles and is not fussed about what people think of him why can t I sit out on my balcony and cry about his storyAs I was reading I really did want to hug this book and I still do Even I want to hug all the characters in this bookThis is indeed a love story It is about love of spouses love of children love of parents of neighbours of friends who made sacrifices of strangers with hearts alive with their own loves It is also about love of nature of the plants that feed us wild and domesticated and it is about love of beautiful sunrises and sunsets of springs and myriad shades of greenThis book is also about the fractures and fissures that love creates while building itselfAt first I could not imagine how a pilgrimage could take up an entire book As I read I was reminded that a pilgrimage is a journey and as with any journey that any person undertakes they bring themselves along Their thoughts their hurts their tender moments and the bitter I am now amazed how just one book contained so muchI recommend this book to anyone who is open to being moved and changed by sharing a journey through life s pains and joys with a fellow pilgrim
