    Story
    (216)

    On the morning of December 22, 2005, New York City firefighter Matt Long was cycling to work when he was struck by and sucked under a 20-ton bus making an illegal turn. The injuries he sustained pushed him within inches of death. Miraculously, after five months in the hospital and more than 40 operations, Matt was able to start his recovery. This book chronicles Matt's road to recovery as he teaches himself to walk again and, a mere three years later, to run in the 2008 New York City Marathon.

    Sarah says: "Only 1/2 way through and loving it"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Long Run to be better than the print version?

    Excellent book and so inspiring. So great to listen to while out for a bike ride or a run.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the blackest points in his life and how he managed to crawl back up and keep trying.

    Story

    Alexandra had high hopes: the arse of an athlete, the waist of a supermodel, the speed of a gazelle. Defeated by gyms and bored of yoga, she decided to run. Her first attempt did not end well. Six years later, she has run five marathons in two continents. But, as her dad says, you run with your head as much as with your legs.

    Michelle says: "Laughed, cried, gasped....Marathon story!"
    "A Light and Funny Summertime Read"

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

    Yes, I would highly recommend this book. The story itself is great and the narrator is easy to listen to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charlie Bucket of course. He is the hero but remains humble and kind and caring.


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

    The different voices of the different characters really brings the story to life. The accent helps make the phrases and names sound proper.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The description of the smells and tastes of the chocolate that Charlie experienced when he was so hungry and his family starving.
