'Wonderful' -- Deborah Orr Guardian 'At times almost unbearably moving.' --Sunday Times 'A brilliant and charming novel: full of comic panache yet acute and poignant.' --Spectator 'A gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation.' --Oprah Magazine 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is a funny book, a wise book, a charming book - but never cloying. It's a book with a savage twist, and yet never seems manipulative. Perhaps because Harold himself is just wonderful...This book may follow a pattern set by another radio dramatist-turned-novelist, David Nicholls, whose One Day has now sold more than a million copies and been made into a successful film simply because one reader said to another 'I love this book' over and over again. So I'm telling you now: I love this book.' -- Erica Wagner The Times
