    It's not about the goal, but rather the journey...

    Certainly, it's not a book for everyone. And, for me, it was hard to read at first (it's English-English, not American-English). But, I once took a trip and decided to journal the entire time as I traveled somewhere for the very first time, on my own goal/purpose. And, for me, in retrospect, it was less about the goal and more about the experience as a whole. Every good and bad thing that occurred throughout the entire trip. So reading this resonated with me the thoughts and feelings that I had with my own experience. You could say it's quasi-epic - the protagonist, while not hero with a tragic flaw, is viewed as a pilgrimage warrior at the end, once he and his "trusty steed" final reach the end of their journey. And I triumphed alongside them as I reached the final pages of the book. It may not be something you initially thought you'd enjoy, much like the author in initially viewing his quest, but at the end you will have lived through the journey with Tim and his...semi-loyal burro...

    The author tried very hard with each sentence to get a laugh and it was quite tedious and not funny. I never did figure out his motivation to take a donkey on the camino and I also never did figure out his motivation to travel the camino at all. Perhaps just to write a funny book? Well, he failed. This is not a book about the camino, far from it. In fact, I'm pretty sure that he made up stuff that wasn't true. Must have thought it would be funny.
