What a story

I felt like I was with him the whole way. You don't have to be mad to read this, but it helps

Easy reading for audio book

Read two previous books and they inspired me to undertake a number of challenges in 2019. Easy read.

Makes adventuring accessible!

Sean is an extraordinary, ordinary bloke. His enthusiasm runs through all his stories.....The narrator carries this enthusiasm in his voice...

Good but not amazing

I found the narrator a little off putting and also that the story lacked structure. It just seems more like the random thoughts of Sean Conway stuck together. Enjoyable enough but not the best.

Lot's of giggles and running tips

I loved this book so much, I didn't want it to end. Sean tells his story with so much honesty and humour. I loved hearing about the people he met, places he stayed and the tips and hacks he lived by when running a marathon a day.

Inspires adventure and gives a little hope for us all !

Love hearing about Sean’s adventures with his ever so slightly odd take on everyday life, Sean obviously doesn’t mind telling some of the more embarrassing moments of his epic journey across Britain . Really hope he has some more stories to tell very soon !

Incredible and Inspirational

I absolutely love Sean Conway! He has such a brilliant attitude to everything and a wonderful style of story telling. This book was funny, witty, motivational, inspirational, and just a damn good story! At times, I laughed out loud and I'm so upset that it's finished!!

Another geat adventure

I have Seans first book on my shelf at home, his adventures are never dull. It's a shame he didn't read the book himself (hence not quite perfect score). I can't wait for the next installment.
