Book Review: Arkie's Pilgrimage To The Next Big Thing by Lisa Walker

This is a book review of Arkie's Pilgrimage To The Next Big Thing by Lisa Walker recently published on 2 February 2015 by Random House Australia.

Lisa Walker was born in Holland, grew up in Fiji, spent her teenage years in Brisbane, and she now lives in New South Wales with her husband and sons. This is Lisa's third novel.

This is a funny and inspiring story of Arkie a 40 something Australian woman in the midst of a divorce and on a mission to get her mojo and her life back.

Arkie befriends a Japanese girl Haruko and together they go on a modern day pilgrimage around Australia's big things, as a twist to the traditional pilgrimages throughout Japan.

This is an upbeat and interesting read, especially for those interested in travelling Australia and it's big things .... The Big Pineapple, The Big Banana, The Big Prawn, The Big Macadamia, etc.

This story has a lot of hidden meaning and inspiration too and I found the spiritual side of the book interesting and uplifting.

It was a very easy book to read, the writing flowed, and I felt that I was right alongside Arkie and Haruko on their journey.

I recommend this book to anyone who has lost their mojo or is on a search to find yourself, you might just find what you're looking for in this book.

I give this book 4 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:

3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
