The Path by Malcolm McKay is a fictional story about the daily interactions of modern-day pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage from St.-Jean-Pied-du-Port, France to the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The Camino is a metaphor for the spiritual and intellectual journey undertaken by this group of pilgrims. These Camino trekkers come to find their path in life; unlike the actual walkers who have a destination, a recognizable final point, these wanderers do not necessarily find their way–they come to the Camino lost and leave it without solution.
Mr. McKay’s gasp of human nature is evident in the development of his complex characters. You will love or hate them; you will cry and laugh with them, you will be surprised with the plot twists, and you will find it hard to put the book down.
The only detractor is the book’s lack of editing. If you can overlook these as you read, you will enjoy this book.
