Perfect for a triathlon newbie

What made the experience of listening to To the Finish Line the most enjoyable?

Chrissie's style is fresh, funny and engaging. I have huge admiration for Chrissie and won't hesitate in recommending this book to triathlon newbies.

What did you like best about this story?

The volume of the recording was quiet low throughout and particularly at the beginning of each chapter. This made it hard to hear at times whilst driving or when out running near busy roads.

What about Imogen Church’s performance did you like?

Imogen is a 1st class narrator and her tone perfectly suits Chrissie's style. Imogen also narrated "A Life Without Limits" and as such it felt as if I was listening to an old friend :-)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Difficult to listen to in one sitting due to the length and the content.

Any additional comments?

I would suggest the book description should give more guidance on the target audience as the content was geared more towards a beginner and less so for the intermediate to seasoned triathlete.

Good, but not brilliant

Good content, but not inspired as I thought I might be and also not inspired by the narrator.

A very well put together book that is well written and excellently narrated by Imogen Church.
