Kurt Koontz creates a picture of the magic of the Camino. We loved the image of him singing as he walked. We plan to do his circular "restart dance" whenever we get tired. I'm thinking of names for my walking poles, too!
Kurt is a wonderful writer -- his honesty helped infect us with his joy.
I hesitated to write a review of this book because it conjures up emotions from my high school days when I felt my English teacher was grading me instead of my writing and I imagine it's a difficult undertaking to put into words the heart of a defining moment such as a pilgrimage.
I appreciated the travelogue aspect of A Million Steps. Seeing how Mr. Koontz's 28 day pilgrimage was organized and having an account of the weather, the hiking conditions and descriptions of the albergues was helpful information that I will return to when I plan my own pilgrimage. I also appreciated his recounting each day's events as well as his sharing spiritual insights he gained during his walk as well as how he grew and changed during this trip. With that being said, I finished the book feeling confused . . . because it was a little bit travelogue, a little bit journal and a little bit personal/spiritual insight. I was left with the feeling that it was a difficult task to put such a monumental experience into words. I completed this book over a couple of days, which in and of itself was disappointing to me. I wanted reading about such an epic journey to feel like an epic journey to me, the reader. I ended my time on Mr. Koontz's pilgrimage wanting to have spiritually experienced more of it; to have made a deeper spiritual connection.
Writing about personal journeys and experiences is a brave thing to do and I appreciate Mr. Koontz inviting us to experience his camino. I would rather not assign "stars" and would rate it a "10" based solely on the courage it takes to share personal stories. However, I am assigning 4 stars because I would like to encourage him to go deeper if he ever invites us on another journey with him. Don't be afraid to be even more vulnerable with your thoughts and feelings and lessons learned. All in all, I would definitely recommend this book to others.
