While I appreciate the story and the subject and the performance - I've listened to so many others that I enjoyed even more. I would try another.
Nothing special. Somewhat predictable.
I've listened to over a hundred audiobooks. This one was not in my top 50%. But I wouldn't know that unless I completed it. So I would say yes.
I listened to this while running as I thought it was meant to be a classic running novel. It is, but mostly assuming that all runners are men. Where are the female athletes? I know it's of it's time, but the sexism is pretty blatant, and the female characters are thin and have no get up and go.
Other books in this genre speaks more generally to the amateur runner or connects the elite runner to the everyday runner.
Okay i listened to the first 2 chapters and i nearly fell asleep while driving.
I love running and have read a lot of books on running, and this is one of the very worst ever.
