'WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT - IF IT HAD BEEN TRIMMED DOWN'
Strengths: Gives a very good insight into the craziness of hurtling downhill on scree. The author has a good narrative style.
Weaknesses: Way too long and drags in places. Like teh Count, didn't manage to finish it. Gets a bit repetitive and easy to lampoon as a series of anecdotes along the lines of: "Mad John McMad, of Madshire, holds the one-legged record for the Horseshoe Run, what a hard man."
Overall: Good for harcore fell-runners. If you only have a passing interest, you'll start off enjoying it, gradually get bored, and finally put the damn thing down never to be picked up again.
