Without a doubt, one of the best Camino books I have read since I've begun my literary pilgrimage a year ago. Kevin A. Codd invites us to walk along with him on the 1,year-old pilgrimage that is the Camino de Santiago, more specifically, the Camino Frances route which begins its mile trek from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port at the foot of the Pyrenees in southeastern France and stretches across northwestern Spain to Santiago de Compostela.
What I loved most about this travelogue was Codd's pers Without a doubt, one of the best Camino books I have read since I've begun my literary pilgrimage a year ago. What I loved most about this travelogue was Codd's personal reflection from the beginning of his journey to its epiphany.
We revel in his joys, we shed tears in his sorrows, we agonize in his aches and pains, but most of all, we celebrate the camaraderie he shared with his fellow peregrinos, the special bonds he created with each of them along the way.
Eventually, his Camino family of seven make their way to the Field of Stars and we rejoice with all of them as they walk into the Plaza del Obradoiro, the Cathedral of Santiago's main square. If you're planning a pilgrimage of your own someday, or walk the way vicariously as I have done recently, then this book is a must-read addition to your literary Camino collection!
Bravo Kevin and Buen Camino! Aug 27, Kevin Considine rated it it was amazing. I now have over days on the Camino and plans for more. I mention this because it gives me a bit of qualification to review books about the Camino. I strongly recommend this book. That the author is a priest is irrelevant.
I was raised Catholic but am no longer religious. Of all the books I've read his was and is still my favorite. It is well written and gives one a true sense of the Camino experience. For me it stands out because of the author's goodness and humility. His writing is straight forward and from the heart. Nov 25, Cecily Bailey rated it it was amazing Shelves: real-life , spiritual-religion. This is a good one. I was concerned that it might be tedious based on the way it is divided into 35 plus chapters--essentially one for every day on the Camino.
But not so, I enjoyed every minute of this adventure of an age 50 something priest on this path of experience, suffering, joy, friendship and connection to the divine. Kevin Codd is toward the end he puts down those who are not walking w This is a good one.
Kevin Codd is toward the end he puts down those who are not walking with full pack and gear for all ish miles. I did miles of the Camino and carried a day pack in degree weather and it was a real experience.
I hope he has come to understand that each person's Camino is individual. Nevertheless, I would never pass up this lovely Pilgrimage story. Read this more than a year after my own pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. I walked the exact path that he did in , and many places he stopped to rest for a night similar to mine, and this made the reading so easy. And most importantly the memories of the places and friends that I had met came flooding back to me. I understand how it like for pilgrims longing for solitude on certain days, but at the end of the journey how hard it was to say goodbye to our camino buddies, I remembered cryi Read this more than a year after my own pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
I understand how it like for pilgrims longing for solitude on certain days, but at the end of the journey how hard it was to say goodbye to our camino buddies, I remembered crying my heart out in my private room on the last day in Santiago when all my friends had left.
This book reminded me of all those. This was a nice, leisurely narrative. The author is an American priest who makes the mile pilgrimage from France into the northern part of Spain. It is a day by day journal, so we get not only a description of the countryside, weather, fellow pilgrims, the refugios, but also of the inevitable blisters and tendonitis.
At times I started to feel sympathetic pains! The film The Way gives a fictional account, but captures the essence of the journey with a bit of plot.
Both are good taken togethe This was a nice, leisurely narrative. Both are good taken together to give a picture of what this undertaking is like. A good honest narrative of the author's Camino walk. Codd is a priest and his narrative shows it, not preachy but his was a spiritual walk. For the most part he tried to keep that part of his life to himself, like I said 'not preachy'. I enjoyed his straight forward telling of his sore tendons, blisters, annoying people and of course the many friends he made on his pilgrimage.
I found useful info on the various refugio's he stayed in and got a pretty good idea of his daily routines. It's worth r A good honest narrative of the author's Camino walk.
It's worth reading. Feb 11, G. This lovely travelogue has me wishing I were planning to set out on the Camino tomorrow, not 15 months from now. The writing is heartfelt and at times beautiful.
I laughed several times and cried at the end. I feel like I have a much better idea of what it will be like to walk to the field of stars. Jun 01, Leslie rated it it was amazing. I have read a number of Camino and long distance hike books. This one was my favorite. Codd is a Catholic priest who has a lovely balance of hike and spirit. He captures the feeling of family that is created along a trail and the loss that comes when a journey comes to an end.
If you like a spiritual journey at the same time as a physical one, I recommend it highly. Jun 03, Kathy rated it really liked it. Interesting and pleasantly detailed book by a Catholic priest about walking the Camino de Santiago.
If you are considering the walk, this book provides a lot of practical details. If you are not planning to walk the Spanish Camino, the book is a nice travel story.
I would definitely read this book again. May 21, Liz lavenderbug rated it really liked it. I found this book to be honest and inspiring. The problem is that I can't seem to get the idea of embarking on my own pilgrimage out of my head. Ultimately, it inspired me to dream of taking my own journey to the field of stars. Jul 08, Olga rated it it was amazing. As someone seriously planning the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Father Kevin Codd's account of his journey was inspiring and informative.
I loved the honesty of his writing, interjected with humor, and his search for purpose. I look forward to writing about my own journey someday.
Aug 19, Susan rated it really liked it. Enjoyed reading Father Kevin' s progress on the Camino and his thoughts and defections on God, his life and the history of the Camino. I enjoyed reading his day to journal and then re-reading my own blog from that particular section of the Camino.
Jun 28, John rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction. I enjoyed the story of the walk and particularly the people Kevin Codd met on his journey but I found him a bit tedious. Then I thought, if I had the courage to undertake that journey, wouldn't I be a bit tedious too! Mar 01, Mark Gannon rated it it was amazing Shelves: religious , camino-de-santiago.
