I liked the cover with five full-color photographs pleasantly arranged. The book itself barely tops 200 pages (205) but that's because they appear to have used 1.5 line spacing. I also would have preferred the use of a different font for the myths and legends...to make it easier to skip them!

I was OK with the narrative and tales of other Pilgrims and personalities but all that "philosophizing" (for want of a better word) was too much for me:

"A myth is a linguistic tool and one of great flexibility. A myth deals in images and symbols, bypassing reasoned argument in order to address what reason has failed to unravel. Myth's first and last resort is metaphor, making us see one thing as another, mixing up the natural and supernatural, men and gods, the dead and the living, operating where meaning otherwise eludes us, holding up for inspection what would otherwise never be seen by the light of day. Myths smuggle in what, in the realm of reason alone, would be confiscated at the border." And this is followed by five similar paragraphs. Oy vey!!!

I have read over a dozen books on the Camino. Some were dreadful, some excellent, this one is somewhere in the middle. Good in parts, but mostly just so-so.

The book was great for me having done "the way" myself.

A good read for both the "thinking about it" and the "done it" pilgrim.

Thank you!!!

If you are looking for a spiritual and inspiring book on the Camino de Santiago, avoid this book like the plague.

The author's primary purpose seems to be to belittle every legend and traditional he encounters along the way, while simultaneously dishing the dirt on the people he meets. Did they sign up to have their souls exposed to the world, or did "Bob" just feel entitled to do so because he's a writer?

There is nothing about the Camino as a faith journey for this writer, he appears to take great pleasure in putting down the faith of others yet never has the courage to state in clear language what his own beliefs might be.

The subtitle of the book is "Myths and Legends and Pilgrim Stories on the Way to Santiago de Campostela." The author tries to show why every myth is a lie, and goes on and on at the start of every chapter babbling about what is myth and why they exist. Why do the "myths" of the Camino exist? Well, for Bob to rip them apart, of course!

I am sorry I wasted my time and money on this book, as it is one of the most mean-spirited things I've come across in a long time.

I totally enjoyed Mr. Mullen's book and plan to read it again and more slowly. His subject material was very interesting, and his way with words made it not only easy to understand, but a pleasure to read.

The author did a good job when he wrote about the journey and the people that he met on the way, but his attempts to be philosophical and interpret the experience in a spiritual sense fell woefully short. I also thought politics aside that it was strange that when he was asked where he was from he said Scotland. My father is Basque, I lived in Scotland and Panama for years but I am from the USA and I would tell anyone that I live in ........................ but I am from or was born in the USA. It was almost like he is ashamed to be born in American.
I would not recommend this book to anyone. My wife and I plan to walk the Camino and I read this book first hoping for much more based on the other reviews. I won't recommend my wife waste her time on it. I plan to buy the book written by the man who walked the Camino without people knowing he was a Catholic priest. Hopefully the reviews will be correct on this one.
Once I was blind, but thought I could see....How a thrice married draft dodger who believes in everything and nothing simultaneously attempts to banish his demons. As a fellow human I am saddened, as a reviewer- look elsewhere hermano.
