A good read

I remember as a child looking forward to being a grow-up because I figured that meant I would be able to “figure it out” and know what was going on and how the world worked.

Now that I know better than that I enjoy reading books about other people who like me, are still trying to figure things out. The main character in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce is one such character. One review pointed out that “Harold Fry is infuriating, hilarious and completely out of his depth”.

I really enjoyed this book.  It gives insights into the characters and sets us to wondering about their lives and the decisions they’ve made that have gotten them to where they are now.

OK, I looked this up on Amazon, and it's the kind of book I like. But it isn't released yet. How did you score a copy early?

Your description was enough for me to request it from my library. I'm looking forward to it.

Lois, I think it's the paperback version that is not released?
