Publisher's Summary

Abby Rogers has been on health kicks before - they involve eating one blueberry muffin for breakfast instead of two. When Abby is encouraged to join her sporty best friend's running club - by none other than its gorgeous new captain - she finds a mysterious compulsion to exercise.

Then her colleague, Heidi, turns up at work and makes a devastating announcement, one that will change her life - and Abby's - forever.

    "So funny with true to life experiences"
    What made the experience of listening to Girl on the Run the most enjoyable?

    The story was brilliant , wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered the book. Ordered it because I have just started running myself, but you don't have to be a runner to enjoy the story. The irony makes it fun. Narrator was brilliant and brought the characters to life.Some moments surprising and sad but not for long.


    What other book might you compare Girl on the Run to, and why?

    a Bridget Jones story


    Have you listened to any of Emma Gregory’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to this narrator before , but will certainly look out for her now


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh out loud


    Any additional comments?

    Looking to see which Jane Costello book I'm going to listen to next

    "Love the book, Performance - meh"

    I love the book and have read it a few times, but I wasn't a fan of the narrator. She was okay, but her male voices all sounded exactly the same. She also sounded strangely formal in numerous parts of the book.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book and Emma's performance was spot on! Jane Costello is a very funny writer and I love how everything ties up
    Perfectly in the end.

    I love well written mysteries, cosy crime, magical realism & historical fiction. Humour, believable characters & a sense of place are vital.

    Story
    "Easy Listening On The Run"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was a fairly easy and enjoyable listen though not nearly as funny or well written as other books I've read by Jane Costello. I found the main character slightly annoying at first and unaware of what was obviously happening in the lives of those closest to her. However, it is a heart-warming story with not only romance but friendships at it's core.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought Heidi's story was moving and well portrayed. (I can say this because I have been diagnosed with a related condition.) Heidi is a talented and lovely young 20 something newly diagnosed with one of the worst conditions imaginable and working out how to fight back as best she can. The main character, Abby, makes huge changes in her own life and work to support her friend and employee. Through this many lives shift focus and new relationships are formed, including for Heidi.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was clear and matched the pace of the story but I have to agree with another reviewer that all the men's voices sounded the same.


    Did Girl on the Run inspire you to do anything?

    It reminded me of things I've done in the past.
