Petr says, “I liked the story and how passionate one can be about running and endurance and pursuing dreams. It inspired me to run longer distances.”
Emily says, “I felt a connection to this 67-year-old woman who lived and worked on farms all her life before deciding she needed to hike the 2,050-mile Appalachian Trail. The suffering she happily endured on the trail must have been a welcome relief from the darkness of her past.”
Victoria says, “This is one of my faves because of the empathy and understanding it creates within you as you experience the loss of eviction through the eyes of the evicted. It’s a powerful piece on how to better take care of your neighbors.”
Eduardo says “It’s easily one of my favorite books. The struggle of the guy who was adrift at sea … he never lost hope. You could almost feel what he was feeling. That’s the vividness of the writing.”
Remi says, “Finnegan has a way of pulling his reader into what a life of pursuing their obsession and journeying all over the world really feels like. Bonus points for the years in South Africa which bring it back to a moment in history … beautifully written, permeating passion all the way through.
Guillaume says, It has the best reread value of any book I know. Every piece is incredibly beautiful and well written, and the whole volume oozes a sort of calm melancholy that always gets me.
David says, “This was one of the most pivotal books in my life.”
Thanks for reading!
