I could not "put it down". Each chapter leads you into the next and the author does an excellent job of weaving in interesting side stories and research into the main narrative. I started this yesterday morning and have finished it in less than 36 hours. I'm sure I will be listening again!
The narrator is just great! I haven't read the print version, but this audio version really brought all the characters to life.
I loved the interactions between the Tarahumara and the "outsiders" when they were getting to know each other and learning to work together.
The big race -- all of it.
It was frustrating to be in the middle of a story -- like the race in Colorado -- and having it interrupted by extensive background information on every new character who was introduced. And yet, when we got to the main race in the end, we knew all the characters really well, so I guess it was worth listening to all that information.
I love books! But my family of 8 leave me little time to read, lol. Audible has been the perfect solution!!!
I hate running, but I love this book! Packed full of information, excitement, and great stories. Might have to give run another try!
