The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry - Rachel Joyce

I started it and enjoyed the premise, but I felt it failed to live up to expectations as it went along. A bit of throw-away fluff really, which is a shame as I felt it had real potential.

The story dragged and became confused. The same things seemed to repeat themselves (people all have stories of their own to tell, the kindness of strangers). The plot twist was heavy handed and not particularly surprising and I didn't particularly care about any of the characters in it after a while. The dog was the best one of the lot! All in all it passed the time and was perfectly readable, but I wouldn't insist that anyone had to read it. A missed opportunity, I feel.
