Like so many other fans, I eagerly anticipated the finale installment of Richard Paul Evans "The Walk" series, "Walking on Water". After traveling vicariously through Alan's eyes for the last 4 years I was almost sad to see the adventure end as I counted the days to May 6th , anxiously intrigued to read the conclusion. If ever there was a roller coaster road of life, Alan Christoffersen has traveled it. Snagged and tripped up by various speed bumps along the way, he is encouraged and challenged by the stories of those he has met traversing from Seattle, WA to Key West, FL. This book concludes that emotional sojourn and I can honestly say it was so worth the wait.

So close yet so far, this chapter begins with him traveling back to his boyhood home in Pasadena, CA. to be near his ailing father. Alan learns more about his family and his past then he ever thought possible and through turmoil realizes what a gift that knowledge is. One of my favorite lines in the book comes from a chess analogy from his father: "The past makes a good bishop but a poor king". To figure out what it means, one must read the book. :-) Good friends and old friends rallied around him once more. Love slips through his fingers through no fault of his own and he returns to the last leg of his quest alone.

Traveling though Florida, Alan meets some interesting characters including two "sirens" and a group of brew drinking men who try to convince him that he needs to give up his past memories as to them it only brings pain. A tunnel visioned religious fanatic tries to persuade Alan that his "Church" is the only saving way to God and Alan brilliantly refutes the man's arguments. He continues on to hopefully complete the mission he started and what he discovers at the end brought me to tears.

Let’s go for a walk. What a great way to end this series.

In the fifth and final book in the Walk Series, Alan Christoffersen is rushing back home to be with his father who has had a sudden heart attack. While staying at his family home, Alan comes across a family history that his father has been writing since Alan began his journey from Seattle to Key West.

If you have been reading this series from the beginning, you know that Alan’s world was upended when his wife died suddenly, his business partner stole his clients and Alan was forced into bankruptcy. Though they are all traumatic events, if it were not for each one of them, if he had not taken that first step in a three thousand mile journey, Alan would not have found the beauty that the world offers.

As Alan learns of his family history, and reaches his final destination, his world is coming together. He is saying goodbye to the most important people in his life and at the same time, saying hello to a person that he thought he had lost forever.

Though Alan Christofferson is a fictional character, he offers inspiration. When his physical goal looks as if it is unattainable, he does not give up. His journey is a metaphor for hope – that one bend in the road that might give him the answer, that one thing that will explain it all and make it worthwhile. Does he find it? What he fines is his new reality, his new peace, his new meaning.

Off course there are religious overtones, and undertones, but for me they were not intolerable. The Walk Series is a journal and the stories that AIan tells of his journey and the people that he meets along the way correspond with stories within the Bible.

I just finished reading Richard Paul Evans 5th book in his Walk series called Walking on Water. I felt cheated at the end. I had paid approximately $60 for all five books over the years. Evans failed to develop the character of Falene sufficiently. With Nicole the reader knew a lot about her life and grew to love her through the many ways she made life easier for Alan. Why couldn’t he appreciate her kindness and love her more? Lots of readers have lived the role of 2nd choice spouse and it still became a happy ending. Everyone does not marry the gorgeous person of their dreams. Falene should have been the person going to the hospital with Alan. She should have been at Key West. Instead, she was a cold version of a New York model whom the reader couldn’t relate to. Romance books should have more romance (not sex) in them. The Romance between Alan and Falene was never fully developed.

I’d like to see the ending rewritten to either develop the love scenes with Falene and not added as an epilog, or better yet have Alan marry Nicole for the right reasons. The reader needs to identify with the heroine. I did not want to see her dumped into another relationship with a doctor who wasn’t developed as a character at all. Evans best efforts went into the descriptions of the places he walked through, and he did this well by showing the readers about places many of us have never been to. He developed interesting situations with the people he met on his journey. I really felt the cold and the rain and the sore muscles. It was the characters he met in his adventures that made the books interesting. I doubt that I will ever start reading another series of books written by this author. Five years is too long to wait for a poorly crafted ending.
