Feeble. Don't waste a credit. I have been an Audible customer for very long time and have felt compelled to write only one other review. This book compels me to offer another. The character development is very thin and plot is convoluted. I usually enjoy Meltzer, but this book strikes me as the product of an author under contract for a book - any kind of book, and not necessarily a good book. I could not bring myself to finish it.
I have regularly runs ultras since 2001. This book has spurred more growth in a single listen than all those years, combined. What others have called "bird walking" is the true substance of this book. While the actual race is fascinating, the research and stories about running, in general - shoes, or the lack thereof, nutrition, physiology, and psychology - are a veritable goldmine for an ultrarunner, or anyone aspiring to try.
I am not one to write reviews, but feel compelled to do so in this case. I wish that I had read the first review of this book prior to ordering. It is, in fact, a waste of a credit. I like James Patterson and can hardly believe he wrote this story. The plot is ridiculous, the characters are flat, and the events are completely predictable. I had a difficult time listening to the entire book. Do not waste your time with this one.
