Walking Home: A Poet’s Journey by Simon Armitage: Exactly what the book promises to be and nothing more—one man/poet’s account of his journey along a national trail. I picked up this book as I’m always curious about the reasons different individuals choose to embark on longer-than-normal hikes. While the premise of the author’s journey seemed to be intriguing, it got old very very quickly. A read of the first couple of chapters sets the reader up for the remainder of the book. Something I am not likely to read ever again, or recommend to another. Sadly, lacklustre in every way.
