I have listened to a few of DeMille's books and like those this story is pretty good. It moves a little slowly and I found myself becoming very impatient at times.
What surprised me most was Scott Brick's narration. I usually like him and have gotten books simply because he's the narrator. However in this case he sounds almost bored and a little to melodramatic. So I suggest that you better be as much of a Scott Brick fan as a DeMille fan to really enjoy this.
Since reading this book I have taken off my watch, stopped training for specific events and forgotten about PR times. I have gotten back to running for its own sake and I have enjoyed every moment of it. I am enjoying running in a way that I haven't for years.
This book brought me back to what it was like to run as a child, to run for a shear joy of it. It captures the spirit of running better than any other book I have every read.
The changes I have made since reading this book I believe have reconnected me in a deeper and more meaningful way to what it means to be human. I am extremely grateful for that.
And its just a great story, perfect pace and great characters.
