I am only half way through this absolutely delightful gospel of Harry's pilgrimage. I use the word gospel in the sense that it is incarnational and 'good news', and it has passion. It is also humbling and soul inspiring. Very few books are cover to cover reads but this is, each chapter is well written, humorous, and draws you beautifully one after the other, almost like the footsteps of this pilgrim. The book has a spiritual depth to it, deeply moving and insightful on the soul. Harry describes so many sacred spaces from churches to flea ridden mattresses with the devout eye of a pilgrim. The reader needs to beware it will stir up the inner self, not necessarily to put on your own walking boots but to understand what pilgrims endured and brought joy. Harry Bucknall does this so very well. I hope his iPod can last a while longer for another journey on-wards. Once a pilgrim always a pilgrim. Thank you.

Addendum - I have now finished the book and I am delighted that it did not disappoint from start to finish, don't hesitate to buy this and settle back for a yummy read. Roland Olliff

An excellent book written by a man I have had the honour to have served under in the British Army, I laughed at times so hard I nearly cried, a thought inspiring book which makes you want to grab your walking boots........ Well done

Well done Harry. Got my copy at the book's launch in the Officer's Mess at the Guards Barracks (Wellington Barracks) in London. Excellant story telling of the author's journey across Europe to Rome telling us a little of the history of the places and associated people from the places he passed through during his journey from St. Paul's in London to St. Peter's in The Vatican (Rome). Now looking forward to see if he goes back to complete the journey from Rome to Jerusalem?

I am enthrallled by Harry's second book and I am happy ploughing through it. He writes in a manner that allows the reader to become absurd in the tale and it's a wonderful balance of information about the places, people he meets and his mood. I reallly don't "do God" but find myself wrapped up in the whole undertaking, feeling jealous of the experience and obvious joy that the walk provides. A great read.

This is the second book I have enjoyed by this author and he has matured and developed as a writer so much since his Greek Odyssey. It is funny and touching and wonderfully informative. One shares his aching feet, his wonderment at the glory of the buildings he describes so eloquently and ultimately the joy and triumph of his arrival in Rome.

Heard the interview on Radio 2 and bought the book on the back of that. Haven't finished it yet, but am enjoying it so far....

A personal journey with plenty of European history along the way. Not a pilgrimage in the overt sense but an incentive to those who may feel motivated to continue the search. A light touch to his writing which is pleasing.

I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did, I thought it would be just the usual "one man on a walk" type affair. Turns out I read the whole thing in short order and was much happier for it. It flows wonderfully, regularly leaves a smile on your face and makes you seriously think about taking the same journey yourself (not bad considering my militant atheism).
I recommend this book wholeheartedly for an uplifting read.

This is marvellous, funny, humbling, provocative, interesting stuff. He writes so well and vividly that subconsciously you are on the journey with him. His compassion and sense of humour reveal a wise soul still searching for more but I laughed hysterically at some of the Ealing Comedy moments that pilgrims face. Excellent. Just the job for Xmas presents.
