Publisher's Summary

At the age of 30, Amy Liptrot finds herself washed up back home on Orkney. Standing unstable on the island, she tries to come to terms with the addiction that has swallowed the last decade of her life.

As she spends her mornings swimming in the bracingly cold sea, her days tracking Orkney's wildlife, and her nights searching the sky for the Merry Dancers, Amy discovers how the wild can restore life and renew hope.

    Story
    "Overall, a well written and read book."
    What made the experience of listening to The Outrun the most enjoyable?

    Hearing about the birds on Orkney and other islands.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Outrun?

    Can't think of 1.


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

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hearing about some of Amy's experiences with depression and some of her thoughts, I can relate to.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, this book is well written and read and I found her journey to becoming and remaining sober interesting, but I found it a little boring at the end and I feel awkward saying that about a story that is actually real life.
