Many books have been written about crossing northern Spain on the centuries-old Camino de Santiago, but this one by a Torontonian is funnier, cleverer and more informative than most. —Vancouver Sun(2007-09-22)
The title, subtitle and first line of Jane Christmas's memoir tell you almost everything you need to know about the book: who, what, where, when and why are laid out neatly, and the first sentence, 'Impulse is intuition on crack,' sets both the hook and the tone . . . It's a great first line and it suits the book, which is relentlessly smarter, funnier and holier than thou. —Globe & Mail(2007-10-06)
Forget Elizabeth George and her Oprah field memoir about a pilgrimage of rediscovery in middle age. This is the real deal . . . [Christmas's] style is equal parts Nora Ephron and Bill Bryson, balancing pithy observation with the history of the trail and her own experiences upon it . . . The warts and grottiness of Christmas's journey . . . are recognizable and relatable, much more so than a glossy religious experience or steamy love affair, and much more enjoyable for its accessibility. —Quill & Quire(2007-12-14)

I was very disappointed in this book and it left me sorry i bought it as the Author was so self absorbed and let the beauty of the whole experience pass her by and it come through strongly in this book. Only at the end she get the real meaning - but by then it was too late.
