    In 2007, Chrissie Wellington shocked the triathlon world by winning the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. As a newcomer and a complete unknown to the press, Chrissie's win shook up the sport. A Life without Limits is the story of her rise to the top, a journey that has taken her around the world, from a childhood in England, to the mountains of Nepal, to the oceans of New Zealand, to the trails of Argentina, and finally, across the finish line. A Life without Limits reveals the heart behind her success.

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, we'll narrated and good story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The subtle evolving nature of it that at first was too subtle and I got a little bored/let down, but I stuck with it (not hard to do actually) and am glad I did.


    What does Jim Broadbent bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The proper accent and apparent age range of Harold.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing extreme. I did laugh, but not cry, although it was very heartwarming.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book for people who like less action but more human nature-type stories. Really good and I miss the book now that I'm done!
