      In 24 hours, I have digested the 290 pages that comprise this book To some, this is no extraordinary feat For me, it is certainly not the norm I have read several good books over the years There are books that tell a good story This book is one of those books However, it went much further than that This book grabbed me and sucked me in emotionally opening my eyes to things that have been buried for far too long There are so many messages that are conveyed as a part of this story line Some of the [...]

      My husband listened to this book on CD thinking it was just one book, not realizing it is part of a series He loved it and suggested I read it The very first thing I did, was go online and read all the negative reviews The two complaints were that this book was a waste of money because it is part of a series I don t care because I will just get it from the library and the second complaint was that is was too much writing about foodl the bed and breakfast food, cafes and small diners Neither of t [...]

    5. Robyn on said:

      Mostly positive review, pardon a few of my negative but honest thoughtsI still love you Mr Evans I wondered what could possibly keep a man who loses EVERYTHING from simply ending it all himself I could totally envision the Rock em Sock em Robot life or death struggle, where he ultimately remembers that his wife s wish for him was to LIVE Walking away from it all sure takes on a new meaning as Alan decides to walk as far away from his home in Seattle as he can, and stay in this country, anyway.Ri [...]

      I m not usually a reader of Richard Paul Evans books, but a friend basically ended up placing it in my hands saying you HAVE to read this, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised Even though it bogs down a little when the walk actually begins, It was still a very quick read, a good story, full of little nuggets of truth Here are a couple favorite quotes from the book You can tell a lot about a man by watching how he treats those he doesn t have to be nice to We can spend our days bemoaning ou [...]

      This is the first book in The Walk series I actually read the third one first and thought it was a true story of someone walking across the country This book explains why Alan decides to walk from Washington State to Key West, FL His one true love his wife has an untimely death, his partner steals his clients and Alan loses everything This is why he starts his walk This is the best book series I have ever read I have now read the first three books in the series If you enjoy a short read you will [...]

    8. Vicki on said:

      The author did a great job of letting the reader feel Alan s love for his wife McKale, and his pain over her accident and loss He also did a great job of letting us go on Alan s journey with him The people were real, the places were real, and every thing one was alive on the pages.Now I know we all have different ideas as to what we like and don t like in books, but really, how could anyone not like this book I thought it was SO GOOD I read some of the negative reviews that said the book didn t [...]

    9. McKenzie on said:

      3.5 5 Stars This book was a really quick read for me Overall, I think the characters were interesting But the story didn t blow me away entirely I read this awhile ago, and usually, after reading a book I can remember small details, with this book, I can t But I do think it s a great book for a quick read Also, I didn t enjoy the ending of the novel, and I don t want to discuss spoilers but I thought the way the author ended it wasn t the best The whole point of the story and the ending just did [...]

    10. Jennifer on said:

      Maybe I should be ashamed to admit that I generally love Evans novels But, I do This one gets one star because of it s shameless marketing ploys ironic since the main character is an ad exec So, Alan loses everything and decides to walk across the country Fine The book is fairly interesting We see Alan dealing with grief, learning from people, meeting people who are kind to him, tenuously reaching out to others I could do with far less narration of Alan s food choices, though, just for the recor [...]

      I liked this story and the characters there in even though parts were a bit hard to believe A short inspirational peek at the inside of a mans life as it is crumbling and how he handles it.

      Alan Christoffersen is the voice in the novel The Walk by RICHARD PAUL EVANS After a heart wrenching tragedy, Alan Christoffersen decides to walk Before he decides to walk from Seattle all the way to Key West there is a major battle with whether to destroy his life Thank goodness, he chose life and a long walk The door locked automatically behind me, and without a single key in my pocket, I stood outside on the front patio Then, without looking back, I began to walk At first, the novel seemed a [...]

    13. Maeleah on said:

      Richard Paul Evans has an amazing way of telling a fictional story that seems so real you think it really did happen Infused in the story are these threads of wisdom that inspire you to think about things in a different way This story is about a man named Alan Christoffersen who marries his childhood sweetheart, McKale He starts his own advertising company which takes off and he lives the high life with a million dollar home and luxury cars But then everything literally comes crashing down when [...]

    16. Cindy on said:

      Very inspiring story Sweet characters, good message What would you do if you lost everything The big house you worked hard for, the expensive cars, oh, and don t forget the family you ve created too All of it.gone poof What this man does, is pretty impressive True or not, it reads like non fiction We could all learn a little bit from this story Great read, I can t get my hands on the next book in the series fast enough Top of my reading list

    18. Diane Challenor on said:

      I listened to this story as an audio book It reads like a book of non fiction, so I had to keep reminding myself that it was fiction, not that it mattered I enjoy books about slow travel, walking being one of the methods of slow travel I ve read about in the past such as Bill Bryson s A walk in the woods I love the walker s musing and gleaning lovely bits of wisdom shared as the walker walks along The author of this story is also the audiobook s narrator and I warmed to his gentle American accen [...]

    19. Tracy on said:

      This is an excellent book about a man who loses his wife abruptly and decides to abandon everything and walk away, starting a trek from one of the country to the other There are many part of this book that resonate with me and I love the adventure of story I do not know what personal experience the author has had but he makes some very true statements about grief This is a physical and spiritual journey and the author is careful not to make it too cheesy.I have wanted to read this book for some [...]

    20. Nicole on said:

      I would rate this a 2.5 It was okay I liked it At 25% in I didn t know if I would finish, but I enjoyed the second half than the first I don t feel a connection to any of the characters, and I don t understand many of the motives Perhaps I m different than others, but I don t kiss many people friends or strangers on the cheek or otherwise, and I found some of the scenes strange The book felt to be written by a man, not just from the main character s Alan s perspective who is male , but that the [...]

    21. Robin Meadows on said:

      I actually enjoyed reading the first book in this series and had given it a high rating however, after trudging through the next 3 books and almost quitting during the 4rd, I went back and changed my rating What began as a promising premise has quickly turned into a definite disappointment The encounters made by the walker are so deeply contrived, they are unconvincing, and I grew very weary of what he saw and what he ate at every meal Then, never heard what he was thinking or the inner conflict [...]

    22. Karen on said:

      I was handed this book by my Grandma a month or so ago, and told to read it if you knew her you would have read it too This is not my genre, too sappy and filled with cliches that are presented like the author thought it up themselves and is stoically revealing original philisophical wisdom ie Death is like being in the next room I can now dutifully return this book to Grandma with an honest answer that I read it Last time this happened when I returned the book she had me read, I told her I didn [...]

    23. Laura on said:

      Ugh hated this book If had to read another word about what this character ate during his walk I was going to scream this series of books is a rip offhe could have written one well thought out novel instead of a trilogy of short over priced books.

    24. Leila on said:

    26. Christin.P on said:

      I am in two minds about The Walk, and it s down to story vs structure of the book I have yet to find a way to bring both together which leaves me with a rating of 3.5 Stars in the interim.It takes the main character Alan the first half of the book to tell his story how he meets the love of his life, how his own advertising company earns him a truckload of money and prestigious awards, and why he s estranged irreconcilable it seems from his father Because he shares his memories in such rich detai [...]

      I have enjoyed Richard Paul Evans holiday novels for the last 3 4 years The stories have always left me with something to think about, and I like the fact that the stories oftentimes demonstrate the power of the human spirit When I heard Evans had a new five part series planned, I could not wait to read the first book The Walk.The premise of the story is this Alan Christoffersen once was a young man who had it all money, power, material possessions, and a wife he loved He was a successful execut [...]

      I kind of have mixed feelings about this book I love Richard Paul Evans to death All of his books are really good and where written This is the first time that I havent completely loved one of his books I think it had a really good idea and many good thoughts and quotes Which I will get to in a second But i think he spent to much time on pointless things like to much detail on all of the scenery and everything he eats lol The first half kept my attention but after that I had to force myself to k [...]

    29. Karen on said:

      I would have given this book zero stars, but I wanted it to be clear that my low rating was intentional The best thing I can say about it is that it s a quick read Otherwise, it s largely unremarkable, except for its flaws The book begins with a flash forward that we never return to I guessed I missed the note that this is the first in an unforgettable series of books interesting that the series is described as unforgettable when the sequels aren t even published yet We are led to believe that t [...]
