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.
