    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.

    Overall

    This book starts off well, peaks during the Western States 100 narrative, but never really picks up any steam beyond that. I didn't find it as self-congratulatory as others, but I found his writing style lacking the detail I wanted from his experience. By far the worst aspect of this audiobook was the narrator. In order for me to enjoy an audiobook, the narrator has to have some game, and this guy was pretty bad. Very long pauses between chapters, and robotic conversational inflection were distracting elements from what could have been an enjoyable book.
