It is refreshing to read Parker's writing these days when many of the books I read are not of the same quality. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptive style and the story line kept my interest. As a runner, I find the detail Parker put into describing the pains a runner goes through during a marathon intriguing. I am anxious to start the next book in the series, "Racing the Rain."
Mr. Parker understands runners like few other writers of fiction. He understands the mind of the runner, the will of the runner, and the idiocy of the runner. Mr. Parker's writing is much more polished in this book. He creates such beautiful visuals of QC training in the mountains of North Carolina that I wanted to hop in the car and drive there for a run.
This is a must read for every runner!! There are a lot of subtle references that runners of the last three decades will pick up. This stands proudly along side "Once a Runner" as one of the greatest running books ever written.
John L Parker Jr. seems to enjoy writing about fishing just as much as he enjoys writing about running, but the build up in the first book is essential to the story (despite being a little slow).
