Spectacular Storyteller Richard Paul Evans Invites You on A Walk, a Really Long Walk Series
May 14, 2010
Richard Paul Evans has a lovely way of making women memorable in his new book series THE WALK. Each of the women in the story just pops in a way that makes them real for me, like someone I know and understand.
While I gave Evans' first in this series 5 Stars, I don't know if I will read the others. Evans is poking into new territory here as a master of one-book stories that are hard to top. I never read fiction, except for Richard Paul Evans. The power of THE CHRISTMAS BOX and his other books as single doses of delight worked for me. I am a fan of this author.
Can Evans move into this new territory with his usual finesse? I don't know the answer, because, as I said, I do not know if I want to walk any more into this series. Right now, his lead character doesn't have the usual Evans' charisma, pull and power. His wife did, but.....
I suggest you give this series a try. Make up your own mind. You may well be a series reader. Many fiction readers are. We non-fiction buffs are often one-bookers.
Evans is a good story teller. He just may be able to pull it off.

My emotional reaction to this book was inspiration and excitement, that I CAN DO THIS feeling. Timothy Ferris inspires you to go out and grab the bull by the horns. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to get a leg up in business, or trying to grab a hold of their life and control it instead of it controlling them. The setting is the business world This isn't a novel. It's … more
DELETE THESE QUESTIONS IF/AFTER YOU RESPOND!! I felt very inspired. He lost so much, but the book touched on possibly there was meaning to his loss. I would recommend this book to anyone going through a difficult time and struggling to make sense of it. The book is set in Seattle, WA. The main character decides to take a major walk to clear his head, to Florida! Our … more
When I am not writing or painting or teaching, I am reading, literally hundreds of non-fiction books every year. Why? Because I love learning from other people's journeys. Authors work hard to bring … more
