5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful of book of true life human kindness right around the world!
This is a brilliant story of how determination can get you what you want, but mostly of just how wonderfully kind people are all around the world. This story really inspired me with the idea that we are all one people on this Earth despite our differing circumstances. We all
suffer the same diseases and in particular Cancer is a world-wide issue. All around the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable feat (feet) by Rosie; shabby effort by HarperCollins
ROSIE SWALE POPE's remarkable achievement is admirable.

The fundamental purpose of Rosie's trip, together with her almost incredible endurance, an eternal optimism, and her own unswerving faith in the goodness of all and everything - human, animal and spiritual - keeps her going. As it does the reader too, actually.

But what a disappointing effort...

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a little run arounf the world, 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes: 5 Years, 29 Marriage Proposals and 53 Pairs of Shoes (Paperback)
This book was certainly one that made me have late nights, almost impossible to put down. I really enjoyed it, and so did my husband. He also found it kept him awake late, or early mornings.

this book is the fastest book i have ever read, purely because i could not put it down. it is an emotional roller coaster, and for me; a book about mental and physical strength whilst remaining warm at heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story, 13 Jun 2010

This review is from: Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes: 5 Years, 29 Marriage Proposals and 53 Pairs of Shoes (Paperback)
Wonderful story. It is not so much about running. Or even Rosie. But about the people and cultures across the world. Plus, of course, endurance.
This may be a man thing, but some maps in the book would have helped to put the journey in context. And also, more details on the organisation behind it all and the equipment being used... Okay that is a man thing.
If one thing, the book is almost too short. I would have been happy if the book was twice as long.

This review is from: Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes: 5 Years, 29 Marriage Proposals and 53 Pairs of Shoes (Paperback)
You have to admire Rosie Swale's guts, her sheer determination to complete this epic voyage is mind blowing. During her run, she camped out in temperatures of -50 degrees in mid winter, fended off madmen and wild bears as well as sustaining various injuries not least frostbite. What a brilliant read...

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a little run around the World..., 3 May 2010
This review is from: Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes: 5 Years, 29 Marriage Proposals and 53 Pairs of Shoes (Paperback)
I cried at the beginning and the end, and laughed, worried and was filled with admiration throughout the rest of the book. I enjoy this type of travelogue and this was one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superwoman Rosie, 12 Nov 2009

This review is from: Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes: 5 Years, 29 Marriage Proposals and 53 Pairs of Shoes (Paperback)
Even though we all know Rosie makes it home safe and sound, I still feared for her safety throughout the entire book. Rosie's bravery amazes me and the love and kindness of the people she met along the way warms my heart as it did hers. Bravo Rosie. If you get the chance to hear her speak GO! Rosie is even more amazing in the flesh which is probably one of the reasons she got 29 marriage proposals on her run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, 12 Oct 2009
This review is from: Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes: 5 Years, 29 Marriage Proposals and 53 Pairs of Shoes (Paperback)
Just a Little Run Around the World: 5 Years, 3 Packs of Wolves and 53 Pairs of Shoes: 5 Years, 29 Marriage Proposals and 53 Pairs of Shoes

An inspirational and action packed read.
I bought the book as a gift for my daughter, she loved it and lent it to me.
I in turn also loved the book, all Rosie's adventures and experiences are described in great colourful detail, with lots of humour and a sense of deep meaning.

I could not put the book down. Rosie Swale-Pope is a remarkable and extraordinary woman. She made the impossible to become possible. Zuzana Necedova
