The title is just perfect...The Fall is Cross Country season for track. And, since training begins in the Summer, it is a long season. But the title hints at other meanings. The Atlantic team has a devastating season, and the team "falls." After a tragedy affects the team, one of the young men on the team "falls" as well.
What I really loved about this book was how well Mr. Krinsky captured the local color of his fictional town. The running routes, landmarks, and even the types of workouts and exercises the team partakes in all appear in the novel. These made the novel feel very realistic to me and knowing a little about high school track helped too.
Amid grueling training and high hopes for a winning season, along with the untimely death of a fellow runner, "The Longest Fall" explores the full spectrum of the personal and sometimes lonely reality which is running.
A satisfying and well-written work!
