over the author's previous book - night and day! I was able to sustain interest in this one fairly effortlessly, and it was just about the right length as by the time he reached Italy I was ready for things to start wrapping up. Hiring a professional narrator made all the difference, even if the fellow bungled a New York accent (though that voice only lasted a few minutes); his pompous, sneering Spanish fellow was a hoot.

I loved this to listen to while I was out on my own walks. Although I found the start a bit slow and heavy on the history details, I began to appreciate those details more as the book progressed, although sometimes I admit my brain switched off and I just appreciated the gentle rhythm of the talking. Harry seems to know his stuff, about history, architecture and more, but balanced this with plenty of detail about the pilgrimage and the people.
Great travel book. We follow along with the daily travels of the author Harry Bucknall and meet the various characters along the way. The narrator and the writing kept me interested to the very last.
