Thoughtful. Engaging. Hopeful.
The author was honest and gracious and open.
There were not a lot of 'scenes'.
I did not have an extreme reaction. It was simply a very pleasant book to listen to. There were insights and anecdotes that were engaging enough to keep me listening the whole way through.
One of the best. Her narration and keen storytelling kept my interest the whole way through.
The whole audiobook was collection of memorable moments..
She is a wonderful performer.
I haven't finished the audiobook because everytime I attempt to I find myself increasingly agitated by the stories and end up switching to another audiobook. The stories have been thus far almost wholly banal and often grating. The stories are about average people who hated exercising and then started running, and lo and behold, discovered despite themselves that they enjoyed it. This is the great insight from each story and gets boring quickly. They are the types of stories you expect to see in the pages of Self magazine or some other publication cashing in from the weight loss industry. But at least in those pages you'd get the fun of before and after pictures.
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. Haruki Murakami's books don't always lend themselves to an audiobook format, but this book was well served by it. It is a wonderful personal meditation on running and the routines of life. For anyone that runs regularly this book will feel like a dear companion. My only criticism is that it ended too soon.
I don't know, but i do know having Tina Fey do the narration was integral to the success of this audiobook.
There were so many laugh out loud moments it's difficult to isolate one.
It was a great audiobook.
