    "love it"

    I'd read the paperback before, but decided to do the audible as I traveled west recently to do a trail marathon. It's one of the best inspirational running books I've come across.

    "Average Book, Narration Not Great"
    What didn’t you like about Quincy Dunn-Baker’s performance?

    As other people have noted, it's really hard to imagine why the publisher chose this narrator for the book. He's way too serious and intense for this story. I picture Scott Jurek as a zen warrior, not capable of hurting a fly and this guy reads the story in a very aggressive tone.


    Any additional comments?

    This is basically the story of Scott Jurek from when he was young to present day. This isn't the same type of book as "Born to Run" where you have a cast of characters who are developed. It's basically just about Scott's journey from youth to now and it runs straight through.

    "Great book"

    I listened to Eat and Run on my runs and commute to and from work. From the opening word to the last I was hooked. I actually finished it just as I was finishing a run before work. Having grown up in WI myself I could easily place myself in Duluth and the other rural northern Midwest towns. I've already recommended it to others.

    Story
    "A insatiable reality novel!"

    The content kept curiosity on high all the way and the narrator made sure you just wanted to keep listening to it until the very end. The realities of the ultra run sport unfolded the humanity of it, testifying all along the human capacity to overcome the most inconceivable goals, unexpectedly overcoming the highest limits.

    "Great book!!"

    I finished this in just a few days. The book covers the mental physical and spiritual aspects of ultra running. Inspiring and informative.

    "very focused book but not a lot of personality"

    I feel like this book is a bit like Scott himself. Very focused, very type-A. It was interesting but I felt like something was left out. I guess I was spoiled by reading Born to Run immediately prior. Overall, great information, and Scott has amazing stories to tell.... it just wasn't a super entertaining read. Love the recipes though! Nom nom.
