    A dominant force in the sport of ultrarunning, Scott Jurek is a seven-time winner of the 100-mile Western States Endurance Run and a two-time winner of the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon through Death Valley. Eat & Run offers an inspirational account of Jurek’s life as a runner and vegan. Regaling listeners with jaw-dropping tales of endurance, Jurek also delivers sound science and practical advice—as well as his favorite plant-based recipes.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    At first, I really enjoyed this book. Learning about Jurek's childhood and path to a plant-based diet was informative and inspiring.

    Eventually things evolved into a series of race reports packed with minutia. I wanted to hear less about his mile splits and more about the story surrounding each race. Perhaps there isn't much story to tell, however, as Jurek comes across as rather dull with a singular focus on running.

    I finished the book, but would not recommend it to a friend. If you are interested in learning more about plant-based diets, consider Veganist by Kathy Freeston and The China Study, both available from Audible.

  • Obsession, Deceit, and Really Dark Chocolate

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 33 mins)

    Story

    Sophie Katz's relationship with the irresistible and occasionally insufferable P.I. Anatoly Darinsky is on the fritz when a friend recruits Sophie's investigation skills to decode her possibly two-timing husband's strange behavior. When Sophie shows up in a short, red cocktail dress and her friend's hubby winds up dead, the loveable would-be sleuth can't help but take on the job.

    TRACY says: "Not as engaging as previous books"
    "More fabulous work from Kyra Davis"
    Overall

    Kyra Davis rounds out her Sophie Katz trilogy with another suspenseful, sexy story. Fans of Davis' previous work won't be disappointed and Gabra Zachman continues to provide humorous, varied narration. An excellent read or listen!
