In May 2006, armed only with a small rucksack and a staff, Tony Kevin, an overweight, sedentary, 63-year-old former diplomat, set off on an eight-week trek across Spain. But this was not just a very long walk — it was a pilgrimage. From Granada, in the southeast, to Santiago de Compostela, in the far northwest, Tony followed the Via Mozarabe and the Via de la Plata, two of the many pilgrim trails that crisscross Spain and Portugal and that all lead to a single destination.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Minimise the religious soul searching

Has Walking the Camino put you off other books in this genre?

Nope

What about James Millar’s performance did you like?

The narrator was consistent but somewhat failed to convey any emotion.

Did Walking the Camino inspire you to do anything?

Confirmed my desire to travel to Spain. Maybe not the Camino though.
