Within such a short amount of pages is so much to experience.

The narrator of this book takes you along with him on a vivid adventure across various places in America to deal with his grief in a way that forces him to go on a poorly planned hitchhiking journey which sounds awful at first because why would anyone willingly hop into random strangers cars and walk miles until their feet were bloodied and blistered? It sounds crazy to me, but I imagine that it's kind of like those moments in life wh

A very breathtaking story involving a man on a road trip with his friend hoping to make sense of the world around him. The most intriguing part of the story involved the journey of a young man on a road trip with his friend and a handful of books -one of which is Walden (one of my favourite books) trying to find meaning and get over the grief of losing his mother. There is so much to learn and experience in this short story, you can't help but feel drawn into the story. Within the pages of the b ...more

What a delightful little story about a cleansing trip for two young men from Ohio to the Ocean. Both Saul and West have lost their mothers. West's loss is more recent and he feels the need to rough it to the ocean and back before his life gets back to the new normal, without his mom....they pass through Pennsylvania locations near to my home, all the towns names are so familiar to me, they are all places I have been to...This is a lovely recollection of a trip to heal before life starts again.

This book very realistically describes the hardships that you could face in doing things that you just feel like doing, for no matter what reason it is. A very short, but enjoyable, read. I'm a big fan of open ended books, and this one doesn't disappoint. It might feel as if the book abruptly ended, but will keep you contemplating for quite some time after you finish it.

The writing varies from good to great through the pages. The feeling of plain dissatisfaction for whatever (or even unknown!) r

In this wonderfully crafted novella, the reader is taken on a journey with West and his best friend Saul. West is coming to terms with loss and has decided to take his best friend and take off on a poorly planned road trip, and from the first page it’s hard not to wonder where this road will lead them. This story of adventure has real heart and I look forward to reading more by this author.

I really enjoyed this novella. It brought back memories of Pennsylvania. It drew me in and I connected with the story due to losing my father; feeling adrift; trying to get grounded. My only complaint is that the ending seemed abrupt. I would recommend this novella.
