  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #2
    Kagge (Silence, 2017) was the first person to walk to the South Pole alone. He has also trekked to the North Pole and summited Mount Everest. But this book is not about the thrill of adventure or perilous journeys. Rather, Walking reads much like the act of wandering itself as Kagge's narrative meanders through different thoughts with short vignettes about his life and candid take-aways from his varied experiences. Kagge's purposeful lack of plotlines and direction is meant to challenge readers to let go of traditional constraints and take pleasure in his lyrical and sometimes philosophical prose, just as he encourages people to walk for pleasure without hurry. Kagge's intimate relationship with walking and the natural world resonates throughout this reflective book, and his awe and wonder are contagious. A brief read, Walking is meant to be savored at a leisurely pace and is a perfect companion for those who seek mindfulness and meditation in their everyday lives. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
