    Very inspiring and motivational

    I love the narrative style of the book and how we learn about Murakami personality and motivations. I could relate to some of his stories and feelings even though Im just an occasional runner.

    Courir parce qu'on aime ça

    Livre agréable à lire sur un coureur longue distance. Ne fait pas partie de l'élite mais son histoire ressemble à plusieurs coureurs amateurs.

    A special glimpse into a creative mind

    One reviewer of this book called it “a quirky gem.” It is. It lets you get inside the head of Murakami and you get to see what makes him tick. You learn how his running is so essential to his writing. In one part, he questions whether anyone can really like him, being the way he is and expressing what he believes. Based on this book, I like him. I already loved his work.

    Marathons as par of life.

    This is at first sight a lightweight, self-deprecating autobiographical history. But it didn't take long for me to realize that it is a personal essay of significant depth. It presents an attitude toward life and living by example that succeeds in a way that explicit formal exposition cannot. I won't waste words by trying to present it here; only that I found it inspiring while preparing for another kind of marathon -- nanoimo, the annual challenge of writing 50,000 words in November.

    What i talk about when i talk about running

    It's like a tour guide of where he has lived but with a pair of running shorts instead of a sense of humour What he seems to talk about most when he is running is himself. All these places he had lived he tells me but I don't care. All the subtle thoughts he might have had it how he relates to other runners he hardly tells us.
