I LISTEN: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Thank you Jim Broadbent for the lovely reading of Rachel Joyce's lovely story.

If you are feeling IN A RUT and DOWN, it's time to pick up (or listen to, in my case) THIS BOOK.

Lately I have been reading/listening to books that I know nothing about except that they come highly rated.  I was shocked at where this book went.  It was amazing.

Spoiler Alert: there is cancer (which I hate) but the subject matter is redeemed with some of the most lovely writing about cancer and it's various ends, that I did not stay mad at Ms. Joyce for fact I think I shed a little tear at that part.

So, go read it!


  1. Yours is the second highly recommended review I've read lately, although the other person read it. I'm glad you liked the audio, that's probably what I'll do :)

  2. Long-time lurker here. I was at Dollar Tree tonight (I think that's what it's called) and noticed your picture in a picture frame. I think I may have been following your blog for way too long:)

  3. I thought I left a comment last night about seeing you in a picture frame but I don't see it here. Regardless, I thought later you might think that was a weird thing to say so I should clarify that I LITERALLY saw a picture of you (some sort of stock photo) as advertising in a picture frame. In fact there were two pictures - one on each side - but I can't remember if you were in both. In the one I remember you were with a guy and small girl. The girl could have possibly been your daughter.
