Truthfully, I could not get myself to finish Patchett's acclaimed novel Bel Canto, but Run was spectacular! The events in the book occur over the course of 24 hours, and I didn't even notice that detail until the end. But I sure felt it. I was reading Run when I should have been sleeping.

Life's too short to read bad books! THIS book, however, is very worthwhile. What a pleasure to read such flowing & meaningful prose & enjoy the interesting story of a family in Boston & the unusual circumstances of their intertwined lives. THIS book is what "pleasure reading" is all about!

This book is wonderfully engaging. It takes you through the twists and turns of interlaced lives in ways that unfold like a good mystery. Patchett is both wise and passionate in her storytelling.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Run, a worthy successor to Bel Canto, shows off Patchett's trademark gorgeous prose and emotional depth. Her characters are believably flawed, but ultimately good and decent human beings who you want to spend time with.

"Review" by , "Ann Patchett can be counted on to deliver novels rich in imaginative bravado and psychological nuance."
"Synopsis" by , Set over a period of 24 hours, Run shows how worlds of privilege and poverty can coexist only blocks apart from each other, and how family can include the most unlikely of people, in this novel about secrets, duty, responsibility, and the lengths people will go to protect their children.
