    1. Book four of the series Still a solid story but not as exciting as the two prior ones Two strange events did occur but for some reason they didn t impact me to the same degree as other events in the prior books In any event, I am anxious to finish the series and only wish the author could write faster You can t go wrong with a Richard Paul Evans novel His prose seems effortless and you feel like you are walking along with the character I received the book on 5 7 and finished on 5 8.


    2. As with the previous 3 books in this series, this author gives insight into how much other people touch your life in some way, be it for the better or not so much the better, in life s journey to mold who you are and who you will choose to become along the way Very much looking forward to the last book in this 5 book series and would highly recommend this easy read series to all my friends.


    3. Alan Christoffersen began his walk from Seattle to Key West almost one year ago Devastated by the death of his wife, the betrayal of his business partner, the loss of his business and his home he was contemplating suicide, but decided to walk instead After collapsing at the side of the road at the almost halfway point of his walk, Alan discovers his recent bouts with vertigo are being caused by a brain tumor Having to deal with yet another hospital stay, Alan decides to have the procedure done i [...]


    4. Just as good as the first three books in the series although I was a little distracted by the side journeys For me, my favorite part of the series is the actual traveling and this book seemed to be lacking that But it thoroughly captivated me and I could not put down the book until I was finished LOVED the last few paragraphs before the epilogue Do we really have to wait an entire year for the next in the series


    5. I have read every book Richard Paul Evans has written this is not including his children s books I love The Walk series I am looking forward to the conclusion at is coming out in May 2014 I think what I love most about all of his books the diary entries that are usually VERY THOUGHT provoking Some of my favorite QUOTES have come from Richard Paul Evans books


    6. It was like reading a travel log I am tired of Alan feeling sorry for himself Some things he encountered in this book were too weird for me.


    7. A Step of Faith is the fourth in The Walk series that began in 2010 It is preceded by The Walk 2010 , Miles to Go 2011 , and The Road to Grace 2012 While it is not strictly necessary to have read the first three in order to understand and enjoy A Step of Faith, I would strongly recommend it The premise of The Walk series is that Alan Christoffersen, living in Seattle, had it all his own advertising business, a lovely home, and a beautiful, loving wife, McKale who also happens to have been his ch [...]


    8. Sorry, this was my least favorite of the walk series I found it rather boring where too much time was spent telling me what he ate for each meal I really detested the part of the cult encounter that bordered on sci fi perhaps alluding to Christian Scientist It didn t flow with the story and had no purpose in my mind I ended up skimming over El s the cult leader prophecies The fact that Allen was obtuse about the obvious adoration of two women and the concern from his father made him seem selfish [...]


    9. This Walk series is definitely worth it and the wait between books Not only do you get to follow Alan on his cross country walk, you get to see him grow up as he goes with his various trials I really enjoy this series


    10. This one seemed a little boring at times But he met some interesting scary characters And of course, Mr Evans ended with one of his usual cliffhangers Yay for me, I have the last book to read So excited for the end of this journey.


    11. I loved this book,even though I found out that I was reading book 4 of the Walk series, I thoroughly enjoyed it It reminded me somewhat of Peter Jenkins books about his walking across America, though this series is fiction Here is a quote from the book that really hit home with me regret is a useless emotion it s like brushing your teeth after you find a cavity.Now, I will be going back and starting the series with book 1.duh But then I was in the library and no access to to check it out first T [...]


    12. Another great book in this series.With a subtle, religious subtext, the story keeps moving and the character has me reading these quickly


    13. I am so glad there is just one book in this series Seems like it could have been two books at most Too much detail on what he ate, not enough substance to the book.


    14. This is one of these stories that makes feel better, comfortable, like hot bath or a long awaited nap It gives sort of katharctic experience to the reader.


    15. Again I l8ved the story and again I can t wait to read tge final installment It will be bittersweet when rjis Walk is finished i don t want to see it end I am attached to Alan, Nicole and Falene very much I love tjis story and really can t tead it fast enough.


    16. Eh, it was ok Few strange parts, a girl picks him up and gives him a ride to a hotel where they share a room Really What woman in her right mind would give a homeless guy a ride and then proceed to spend the night Also the whole cult experience was a little strange.


    17. This was the 4th installment in this series and it has been great In the back of the book it says the next installment in May 2014n t wait.


    18. The Walk Series, recounting one man s walk across America Seattle to Key West death to despair despair to hope hope to assurance assurance to a big fat hairy detour No matter how much I or the rest of humanity wishes otherwise, life is not lived in smooth, downhill expressways, but in the obscure, perilous trails and rocky back roads of life where we stumble and feel our way through the fog of the unknown Life is not a sprint It was never meant to be It is just one step of faith after another In [...]


    19. I read this book in a day and I am a slow reader I ended up skipping through paragraphs that just talked about what he was eating or how his phone was dead and he had to plug it in I don t care if he puts ketchup on his plate and then eats it This book was filled with trivial details that felt like it was just to take up space Books 1 and 2 were so good, had so much substance and really had an impact on me but 3 and 4 have been big disappointments I feel like Richard Paul Evans is selling out, r [...]


    20. After re reading the first 3 books and eagerly awaiting this one, I was not disappointed in the story, the characters or the journey I felt as if I discovered about myself by reading of Alan s walk I felt at times as if the story was rushed and maybe needed telling I just have a problem with a character saying, I won t write of that part of my journey, lol , but it was a great story, at times making me really wonder how people do it, walk like that, I know that some do.I have read all of Richa [...]


    21. I will leave you with this quote from the book s main character For the third time since I began, my Walk has been delayed In the beginning, I had considered these stops on my journey as interruptions but I m coming to understand that perhaps these detours are my journey No matter how much I, or the rest of humanity wishes otherwise, life is not lived in smooth, downhill expressways , but in the obscure, perilous trails and rocky back roads of life where we stumble and feel our way through the f [...]


    22. Loved it Not my favorite in the series so far, though That would be the first two This one had a few non walking parts which were an interesting diversion, but seemed distracting to the journey Also it seemed to zip right through several towns without telling a story about them SPOILER ALERT The part where he wanders into a cult I found to be disturbing and scary I didn t like the tension I felt as I read through it It was done well and again, interesting, but just not my cup of tea I guess Even [...]


    23. I feel like I ve been on this journey with the main character Alan for several years now Sorry, Alan but that s not a compliment This being book 4 of the series, I felt that as the reader I would have some sense of conclusion and satisfaction Richard Paul Evans seems to enjoy the idea of But wait There s Though not a total loss, I did enjoy and was somewhat surprised at some of the events that transpired However, in one particularly outrageous chapter I found myself rolling my eyes and sighing [...]


    24. I am a big fan of Richard Evans books and The Walk series have been superb But this book along with book 3 started to question to where we re taking Alan in this journey The details of how he selected his meals, to where he lodged was interesting in book one and two, but becomes quite redundant in book four I was not a fan of the cult encounter seemed a bit scii fi for me and rather disturbing Although I did like how it shows how important that gun is that was given to him by him father in the e [...]


    25. In his book, A Step of Faith, Author Paul Richard Evans, left his painful memories behind him and criss crossed America on foot to see what was on the other side Meeting with the locals as he journeyed through various States, experiencing the culture, tasting various dishes, and sharing historical events makes his book an enlightening and interesting read I finished his book feeling like I went along with him for the road trip and learned so much that I can t wait to get back on the road with hi [...]


    26. This novel did not disappoint Evans has a way of writing a lot of detail, that most authors could do but lose your attention, but he does so without making you bored It was great to continue Alan s journey across the US.The added love interest was not too heavy It added intrigue without stealing from the beauty of the novel In fact, I m interested to see where that goes My major complaint with this book is the fact that to finish the story I have to find the next book I want to read it now All i [...]


    27. Very good story with just the right amount of adventure, human connection, spirituality, and drama Great writing skills I read it for my book club, not especially excited to begin, but read the whole thing in a day once I began It s the 4th book in a series, but no need to have read the previous ones to thoroughly enjoy this one I will probably check out the 5th one, as we are left hanging off a cliff on the last page.


    28. Like the books before it, I read this in a couple days Easy read, but very interesting, and heartwarming too My only hangup is I thought this was the last one So now I have to wait for the last book to finally finish the journey These books could easily be combined into two or maybe three books and it still bothers me that, for obviously marketing purposes, Evans spread them out into five Oh well, I guess They re still excellent.


    29. I am glad that Alan Christoffersen is almost done with his walk It has been a long journey I am thankful for his steps of faith where he has shown us that a shattered world can emerge into the light He is starting to emergeI think I hope I always remember that everyone has suffered than I know And to always have hope and faith in the future and love and live no matter where life takes me Sometimes life s walks are LONG but don t give up and never stop dreaming


    30. Book 4 done and just started book 5 Life is not lived in smooth, downhill expressways, but in the obscure, perilous trails and rocky back roads of life where we stumble and feel our way through the fog of the unknown Life is not a sprint It was never meant to be It is just one step of faith after another.
