    Karnazes reveals the mind-boggling adventures of his nonstop treks through the hell of Death Valley, the incomprehensible frigidity of the South Pole, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains and canyons of the Sierra Nevada.

    "Great story, awkward reading"
    Overall

    Read the print version years ago and am now listening to it for summer motivation. Love the story, although I recognize that he's not as unique as his writing makes him out to be ??? there are many more like him who run ultra marathons ??? but, as is the case for most public faces, he's got the charisma to share it.

    While I would have preferred the author's reading, the narrator does a fine job. But, there are numerous pregnant pauses throughout. Up to 5 seconds of silence in the middle of a chapter ??? and I'm listening at 1.5x! At times I can even hear the inhalation of the narrator for a moment before the narration continues. It may simply be poor editing, but it sure makes it awkward to listen. I prefer a continuous flow with short pauses in between chapters.
