#20 — The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce

  • Rating: 3/5
  • The main character is first portrayed as a passive man floating through his life; as he meets people on his journey to see a dying friend, they open up to him, revealing that no one is what they appear to be. At the same time, we learn about his life through flashbacks and discover that he is more than the horrible husband and father that we are initally led to believe
  • There was a key reveal that was less of a reveal than it was deliberate deception on the part of the author, which wasn’t appreciated
  • Harold’s followers/pilgrims was a side plot that didn’t seem to fit in with the rest of the book. I’m not sure why it was there
