Less Chris McCormack
Something not sports related
It just came across as Macca loving himself at the expense of all others. He repeats himself a lot. I listened to this while I ran and found myself getting really annoyed and wanted it to be over. I was not inspired. I couldn't identify with him at all.
I would recommend and have recommended this book to other runners. Its totally inspiring and highly entertaining.
I really liked the section on barefoot running (although I personally run in nike volmeros myself), and the section on the long footrace with the Tarahumara Indians in the second half.
I listened to this book while running and it inspired me to increase my distance and run longer and harder. I have listened to it twice already and plan to listen to it again. Great book!
I liked that it was read by multiple people. It helped me get into the story more, like a performance.
There were moments in this book where I laughed out loud, smiled and sat perplexed. I really enjoyed it. I am a teacher who works with students with autism and I found the main character in this book to be highly interesting. Jodi Picoult did her homework on Aspergers.
This was my first Jodi Picoult book and I will be listening to more!
I love that the book is read by the author. It gives it a really personal touch.
There is so much that is good about this book but I don't want to spoil any of it for people who haven't listened or read it. If you haven't experienced it, please do. Its a great listen. Its a page turner. I didn't want it to end.
