What did you like best about In Movement There Is Peace? What did you like least?
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.
Would you recommend In Movement There Is Peace to your friends? Why or why not?

Would you consider the audio edition of In Movement There Is Peace to be better than the print version?
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.
What other book might you compare In Movement There Is Peace to and why?
The movie The Way, but this was more detailed
Which scene was your favorite?
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.
Any additional comments?
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 loved listening to this book as I have just completed part of the Camino. I feel I should have walked for longer....
I loved the way you hear the husband and the wife's story side by side. Very clever. I didn't always like the accents of the English people and some of the other nationalities whose English was their mother tongue. But it is a great book .
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Nothing. It was doomed from the start. How walking anywhere in Europe can be made so boring beats me.
What was most disappointing about Elaine Orabona Foster, PhD and Joseph Wilbred Foster III ’s story?
Ten percent Camino-- that was the good bit. Ninety percent self analysing her own strange fears and then having the nerve to try to fix other peoples problems.
The sort of person I stay well clear of when travelling/walking.
It was boring and uncomfortable and I think her husband deserved a medal, though he gradually became a bit the same as his wife, unfortunately.
How could the performance have been better?
The female voice was depressing and stressed, though I suppose it suited the depressing character she was portraying.
The Australian accents were dreadful, and no, not every Australian speaks like Steve Irwin, just like most Americans don't speak like Forest Gump!
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment, and occasionally anger that such a wonderful experience ( for most people) can be reduced to this. I suggest the authors do the Camino again, don't take notes, don't write a book, and just try to enjoy the walk.
Any additional comments?
I really struggled to get to the end, and derived no pleasure or personal enlightenment or benefit from this book.
