"What was the deal with her feet?"
I did the last 110 km of The Camino with a group of someone, most over 65 years old. I know people who have done the whole thing. Never has anyone complained about feet as much as Elaine did. Geez. Bad boots, or something. Anyway, story seemed a little too perfect in terms of their emotional experiences, the religious fulfillment, the promesa, etc. I preferred hearing about the experiences of the trail itself, the food, the scenery, the history, the people they met. All the angst was a little much.
"Best Camino book I've read"
I've listened and read a number of books written that pay homage to the Camino de Santiago, but none as enticing as this book. It makes me even more eager to experience the Camino and the spiritual journey of the Way. Highly recommended for those who are planning the journey and those who are not. Much to learn either way.
"What a journey!"
It was good to hear Elaine and Joe in their own voices and words. You really heard the struggles they were going through and felt the physical and emotional pain by hearing it.
The movie The Way, but this was more detailed
I could hear Elaine's voice crack near the end and really felt she was at a breaking point, but the serenity and cal;m that she found also showed through. The walk kept me riveted and I felt like I was walking with them. I want to do this myself someday.
Both the male and female narrators did an excellent job. I actually thought that they were the authors until I looked it up. I will look for more books that they narrate. They seemed to have a great connection.
I enjoyed this book as a reminder of my own Camino. Everyones walks their own Camino including the authors yet they wanted to compartmentalize theirs and pass it off as this is what everyone will experience. Many time I found them trivializing experiences others have had because it wasn't their experience. Otherwise it was an interesting listen.
"Great "walk" with Joe and Elaine"
I truly enjoyed this book. Listening to the story on Audible as I walked helped to motivate me in my new walking regimen. It felt like I was walking with people who understood that it is difficult to get moving after such a long period of inactivity. There were times, though, that I turned off the story just to listen to the birds and wind and traffic. The story is inspiring and has started me thinking of my next experience/adventure.
"A Must REAT!"
The whole book was good
Everytime they needed, the trail provided.
The narrators did an excellent job. The emotion they put into the reading of this book made me feel like it was their own story.
Not to rush life!
book. I really was not sure how much I would enjoy it, as sometimes religious type books gan get a bit preachy. No worries with this book. It is so inspiring. I really liked the way both authors told of their separate but joined experiences on the trail.
I will listen to this book again and again. That is how much I loved it and I know I will get a lot out of it each time I listen to it.
"Too much angst"
As someone else stated the angst was too much. I would much rather hear about the trip - the scenery, the history, the food, the people. I had to finally turn it off around chapter 29. Enough already.
