Review

July 24, 2013 Madeleine rated it 4 out of 5 stars
If you've ever thought about dating a runner from your running club, or if you've ever wondered how to move on from fear of falling in love again after a bad experience, Running from Love is the book for you.  

From the Author

I love running, I love writing about relationships. I was discussing relationships on my track club with some female members when it hit me that I should write a book about two runners liking each other and navigating the first steps of dating. Voila - Running from Love was born.

Why would anyone LOVE this book? The story is about two runners meeting and falling for each other, sort of. The story line sounded good, the reviews were good, how could I lose?

However, I found I HATED the heroine. She was self-centered, judgmental, and stupid to name a few. She goes with a guy for 3 years, he criticizes, judges her every action, tells her how to talk, does everything but physically slap her. He is the love of her live! R U KIDDING ME? This guy is a total jerk and has no redeeming qualities. He dumps her over the phone no less and in 8 months he is married to the rich socialite. Then after a short time he decides the marriage is not working because he is bored so he shows up back on her doorstep.

She gets ready pissed because she sees the hero with a group of women and assumes the worst. Hangs up on him because he was talking to a woman on the phone, etc. Acts like a crazy woman. BUT SHE IS SEEING HER EX who is still legally married, in some countries, and she seems to be okay with that. REALLY? At least he wasn't DATING any of these women he was just having his picture taken, in public, with them. She is DATING a married man, considering having sex with him again but oh, almost forgot. He was the love of her life. Sterling character that he is.

The hero I liked. Sort of. He has all the makings of a good hero, he came from a poor family and was the son of the custodian of one of the largest estates in his area. So he grew up around rich but he didn't share in it. So far so good. But then, he seems to do everything he can to copy the rich that he professes to dislike. Especially the fake and phony women. Yet every goal seems to get into the country club to be around them. And he pretends to be one of them to achieve it.

I haven't been able to put down this love story! It's one of the best romantic novels I have read and as a runner, I love the fact that the main characters are both members of a track club. I am thankful I have a loving husband and don't have to deal with the dating scene, but this novel has brought back lovely memories of those first chance meetings that turn into something big.

The story seemed to drag. The Characters were inconsistent and the love story was dull. I am a runner and thought I might connect that way, but it wasn't good enough to captivate me throughout the book.

Very "cookie cutter" and predictable. This book was one I could not feel or really care about the characters. Would not recommend it as there are to many other books that are better around

This book gave me a lot of joy and enthusiasm, real enrichment. It touched me deeply. Mrs Gaston builds on almost 400 pages with emotionally rich images, as well as satisfying character progression of the two protagonists. The author paints the inner landscape of the two protagonists with lively, realistic insights and authenticity.

Each of us in one or the other of the two main characters faces similar emotional and social conflicts. The writer has a special sense and also delight in language. I enjoy her neologisms as well as her word choices. Her writing style is like a good glass of wine or champagne. I highly recommend this book.

I probably got this book for free a while back and am finally getting around to reading it. I made it 5% of the way in and really don't find the heroine to be at all likeable nor the heroes mental checklist of her annoying habits. I do know the "real world" is full of bad habits but to make a plausible, and better yet, enjoyable love story, the reader has to like the characters or plot or something to keep an interest in the story. I did not. I was rolling my eyes and grimacing at how far along I had read.

Glad I got this for free because paying the current price of 2.99 for this would have pissed me off.

Totally loved this book and I'm not even a runner - but I felt like I understood the running world through the eyes of endearing main characters, Farrah and Jude. The author creates excellent visuals of places they run and introduces the reader to many strong and memorable characters along the way. I was impressed with the growth and openness that occurred in both multi-faceted main characters, Farrah and Jude as they wrestle with their past and rise above it. As they each search to find themselves and honor their inner values and beliefs, they beautifully find each other.

alas, it doesn't look like it's to be -- ms. gaston that's a plea to you :] ... A very insightful story from both pov's and that's the best part. why this guy can be so aware of Farrah's internal conflicts but not in the most obvious of situations (i.e. other women) tells the story of men vs women thru history I suppose -- he just seems like such a dope sometimes. Did love the competitiveness that our heroine portrays and her growth within it as well. but .. surely there can be more in this story to tell .. please, please !!!!
