5.0 out of 5 stars Bright young thing..., 4 Jun 2013
JF Penn is a bright young thing on the thriller scene. She writes well and the storyline is gripping. You don't need to know much more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, 8 Feb 2013
In a rather saturated, often slightly tedious niche (long-books-about-long-bike-rides), Janapar stands out. It's theme is fresh and honest. Definitely worth a read.

I think that all of us who run, and run a lot, appreciate how difficult it is to articulate why we run. So I admire the bold attempt here. It is well-wriiten, with thoughtful aphorisms and reflections. Like all good marathons, I felt the first half was a bit slow, but the second half much faster. I really enjoyed the chapters about the Spartathlon. It was so miserable it made me think "I want to do that!"
