Two Steps Forward Reviews

  • Odette Knappers

    In YA is coming of age echt een genre, maar in 'volwassen' romans kom je het niet vaak tegen dat karaktergroei het hoofdonderwerp van een boek is. Maar in deze wel.

    En het is zeker een goed er sterk boek. Ik vind het ook mooi hoe de verhaallijnen van de personages zich ontwikkelen. Maar toch 3*.

    De schrijfstijl sprak me niet heel erg aan, hoewel het wel vlot weglas. En de hoeveelheid negativiteit en drama en gedoe tijdens de wandeltocht ook niet echt.

    Al met al heb ik veel YA gelezen met een beter

    This collaboration between Australian writing powerhouse couple, Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist, is a satisfying page-turning romantic comedy, with an accurate and fascinating travel diary side-story.

    Graeme and Anne have walked sections of the Camino on more than one occasion, and it shows in the detailed and intimate descriptions of the trail itself and the towns and villages encountered along the way.

    The central characters, Martin and Zoe, will draw the reader along as a passenger on their indi

    I was first on the list at my local library for Two Steps Forward, as I have been eagerly awaiting any new work with Graeme Simsion's name attached. I was obviously overly excited because Two Steps Forward did very little for me. The parts I did enjoy and warranted all the stars was meeting all the characters in the midst of their Camino de Santiago pilgrimage to Spain. It was so interesting to see everyone's reason for making the religious pilgrimage, and not only did I learn something new but

    "In 2011, literary couple Graeme Simsion (The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp) and Anne Buist (Medea's Curse and Dangerous to Know), walked for 87 days from Cluny in France to Santiago de Compestela, covering 2038 kilometres."
    Knowing that the authors actually had firsthand experience allowed me to understand why the trail became a character in its own right. I loved this element.

    However, the two main characters were very one-dimensional to me. The grieving three-week widow Zoe did not seem to be grieving at all. I didn't feel anything from her and this impacted all the other dynamics such as her internal and external journey and her slow romance with the divorced male lead: Martin who she meets on the trail, and who I struggled similarly with but not quite as much. Maybe this was due to the audiobook performance, maybe I read this on a bad day, maybe the trail completely outshined everything else (which is an explanation I could live with), but it was my experience nonetheless. Although 100% unemotional for me personally, I thoroughly enjoyed learning about this ancient pilgrimage that I don't remember ever hearing about before.

    Learning is good. Three stars.

    This was an entertaining read and reignited my interest in walking the Camino. I enjoyed following Martin and Zoe on their journey to Santiago. It was filled with many wonderful characters just like you would expect to meet on the walk. Both authors personal experience with The Way is quite evident with the attention to detail and the descriptions of the many villages and accomodation places visited along the way. As well as the wonderful friendships that can develop. The Camino has a way of bri ...more

    **3.5 stars**

    I wanted to really love this book and although I did enjoy it, it just didn't reach that height.

    I've read a few books about travels on the Camino Trail (not all non fiction) and maybe I was expecting more of the same.

    If your looking for a book where people lost in life find their way while on the trail, then this is a good one.

    If your looking for a book more about the trail and it's trials and tribulations then this may fall short.

    Thank you to Text Publishing and Goodreads for a co

    Two Steps Forward by husband and wife team Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist was an uplifting and thoroughly enjoyable novel. Though completely different from Simsion's "Rosie" series it contained a number of my favourite elements. For example the writing was engaging so that once started I didn't want to stop reading, the characters were likeable, the story well executed and the setting interesting. Having walked the Chemin/Camino themselves - from Cluny in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain ...more
