"My name is Alan Christoffersen. You don’t know me. ‘Just another book in the library,’ my father would say. ‘Unopened and unread.’ You have no idea how far I’ve come or what I’ve lost. More important, you have no idea what I’ve found." —Prologue

What would you do if you lost everything—your job, your home, and the love of your life—all at the same time? When it happens to Seattle ad executive Alan Christoffersen, he’s tempted by his darkest thoughts. A bottle of pills in his hand and nothing left to live for, he plans to end his misery. Instead, he decides to take a walk. But not any ordinary walk. Taking with him only the barest of essentials, Al leaves behind all that he’s known and heads for the farthest point on his map: Key West, Florida. The people he encounters along the way, and the lessons they share with him, will save his life—and inspire yours.

Richard Paul Evans’s extraordinary New York Times bestsellers have made him one of the world’s most beloved storytellers. A life-changing journey, both physical and spiritual, The Walk is the first of an unforgettable series of books about one man’s search for hope.

Well thought out

Unable to put down. Love the situations and characters he has met so far. Can't wait to read the next 4 books. At some time or another we have all felt like we need to take a walk. Life is a journey that we choose which way we travel down the road. Sometimes we venture off and follow a fork but we find our road eventually again.

If you're looking for a quick and easy read that will keep you wanting to turn the late, then this is certainly the series for you! I'm currently reading the third book in this series and have absolutely loved each of them. Don't be alarmed when you realize it's just about a walk, because it's really about so much more. This book is extremely relatable and allows the reader to reflect on themselves in a somewhat spiritual way. Absolutely recommend any books by Richard Paul Evans to anyone who enjoys books similar to Nicholas Sparks.
