Even though most people wouldn’t classify this as an audiobook, I think it does. I mean, it doesn’t matter, I just wanted to write a quick review about this great and gripping story, not all that unsimilar to the stranger in the woods by Michael Finkel. The main character was fascinating and resonated with me strongly. The little facts about clockmaking and the reference to other literature were nice details that added to the experience. The audio recordings just made it super vivid and I wish more non-fiction books were done this way, although I understand it is very difficult to pull off. One of a kind!
This has been my favourite book that I have read in the year 2020, and although the year has just begun, I think it will remain one of, if not the favourite at the end of the year. An insightful book looking into the solitude life and what it can bring. What brings a man to make a decision like this and how did he get away with it for so long. These are the people that if you met them in real life, you would want to ask them so many questions and try to understand what goes on in their mind and if you were able to do the same in such a situation. Definitely recommend this book to anyone.
Uplifting book from an uplifting author, despite the tough personal period that he had to go through.
The book gave me a new perspective on running, the ability to do it for others and to find joy in such a simple activity.
I had never heard of the podcast, of which the author is a host and I will for sure check it out, since I did quite enjoy the type of humor, it was subtle but brutal at the same time. Because of this book, I signed up for the local running blind organisation, that connects (near)blind people with volunteers that would like to help said people to go and run again and let the others be their eyes. It makes me feel good, knowing something like this exists and makes me less anxious to become blind.
Great motivational and relatable comic from The Oatmeal.
Dosed with plenty of humor, it takes very little time to read through this comic.
Which is great for rainy days, in which you struggle to go outdoors for a run. In the past I came across a shorter version of this book online and when I found out there was more, I didn’t hesitate to get my hands of a copy.
I am not familiar with the other comics of the author, but I do like his style.
The part about the DO or DO NOT was a bit confusing at times, since it was playing with sarcasm and not always was that obvious.
Great insights in what motivates people and athletes in particular, with their drive to excel in endurance events! I enjoyed the variety in the examples, including stories from sports that I never considered to be that interesting, but in the end it is about people aiming to achieve their goals and seeing how they sometimes hold themselves back subconciously. The story about the person getting shot while out on a hunting trip, is the type of unexpected thing that can change your life for good and to see this type of comeback is heartwarming. This is definitely a book that I would like to read again in the future when I am training for a particular event that is close to my heart.
