Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

Pilgrim’s Progress is a bit of a heavy-handed over-the-top obvious allegory, but I found myself enjoying it. The author did a pretty good job of telling how to get to heaven and navigate through life’s challenges. The version I read had the Biblical references written in the text inside parentheses in italics and I found that took away from the enjoyment of the story and so after a while began to just skip over them. There are quite a few illustrations throughout. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever wanted to read Pilgrim’s Progress, but never got around to it.
