This review is from: Walking Home (Hardcover)
I hoped for a great deal more insight into the places and people Simon Armitage saw and met (including his much-maligned friend Slug, who seemed to have a great deal of comic potential)and perhaps into his creative thinking as he yomped across the Dales. Didn't really happen. Nor any very dramatic events (got a bit lost twice and lost his walking poles). It turned into a series of repetitive lists with an anticlimactic ending.
