This book came through recommendation of a friend. Slowly progressing story. I am rather confused about the purpose of his walk and have trouble imagining why anyone would want to do that. But I think I lack the experience to fully appreciate the book.

This is an incredible book. Full of feelings and emotions as the result of days gone by. The ending is expected and unexpected. The audible edition I listened to was narrated/read by Jim Broadbent and he is brilliant!!
