    This book is incredibly captivating and I cannot put it down. It's about time someone gave this race the respect that it truly deserves! Whether you're a runner or not, get yourself a copy. It takes you through the epic journey of running the race from multiple perspectives without having to actually endure the pain and suffering of the race itself. Definitely worth the read!

    Langton has a style that is similar to Jon Krakauer, who is my favorite author. It weaves the story of 8 main runners as they battle 103 miles and the elements of nature that come with it. I found myself really cheering for all of them to succeed. The book does have a couple editorial or printing challenges, so it's not perfect, yet the issues are not distracting to the story or to the reader's ability to follow it.

    I started reading this in the airport and didn't mind that my flight was delayed by 3 hours. I was wrapped up in each of the stories and just wanted more! Very well done.
