It's an appealing premise: a story from the point of view of a man who walked from New York to Arizona. And this audiobook is indeed appealing, but not for that obvious reason. In the wake of a breakup, Gil's journey west has already taken place, and now he is settling into his new life alone. Paul Heitsch is an excellent narrator: clear with enunciation and sensitive to mood. The natural, unpretentious tone he maintains throughout his performance is easy to embrace and believe. Somehow, though, the great narration becomes more of a pleasant companion than a vessel for the plot, which meanders and hesitates. Listeners willing to visit Gil's days and glance back at that journey will likely enjoy this audiobook. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
