    In this exciting seventh entry in Thomas Perry's Jane Whitefield series, Jane spirits James Shelby, a man unjustly convicted of his wife's murder, out of the criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles-but the price of Shelby's freedom is high.

    John says: "Non-stop action all the way"
    "Poor value for money..."

    It's only 8 hours long - all the other Jane Whitefield books were 12/13 hours. Yet this book was the same price as the rest. I feel rather cheated.

    In the Fall of 2006, Dean Karnazes, known as "the Lance Armstrong of the running world", took on the ultimate challenge: running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days. Dean set off in a caravan packed with fellow runners, with nothing more than a roadmap and a determination that defied all physical limitations.

    Where does 50/50 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty highly


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dean Karnazes and Matt Fitzgerald ? Why or why not?

    Yes, especially if Karno narrates it himself.


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't enjoy the side story of the crew collecting a total of 50 women's phone numbers at the 50 events... Women aren't things to collect and add to a list like race finishes... A bit misogynistic and rather disappointing.

    Karnazes reveals the mind-boggling adventures of his nonstop treks through the hell of Death Valley, the incomprehensible frigidity of the South Pole, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains and canyons of the Sierra Nevada.

    Andrea says: "Not as self-congratulating as others have said"
    "Narrator licking lips noises are distracting!"

    If you could sum up Ultramarathon Man in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring - astounding - awesome!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have Dean Karnazes narrate the book! I didn't notice it while listening using headphones. However while listening thru the speaker I became aware of the narrator doing something like licking his lips at the start of sentences. Some wet lip sound. Once I became aware of that it was all that I could hear and I almost didn't finish listening to the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes altho I didn't have time to.
