The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel
This book was just… pleasant. I enjoyed it every time I picked it up. The writing had such an easy flow that just felt... nice. It's a big warm fuzzy of a book that looks at a lot of disfunction and sorrow all at the same time. The story naturally progressed and you could really feel like you were in the mind of Harold and taking this journey with him. I loved how the writer incorporated the backstory into the journey. It never felt forced, but skipped around as anyone's mind does. Parts were predictable but there are a few twists I did not see coming. Well done Ms. Joyce. Couple all that with some good underlying lessons about getting outside of our normal and quieting the mind to really work through things was great. Harold seems so real and approachable with his regrets, growth and hope. I loved watching him evolve. This is a sweet read that is sure to bring about some good book club discussions.
