    It's not often I sit down and read a book in one day, but this was easy. It had a little bit of everything, from the drama of running ultra-endurance events in the desert, to an extremely cute dog, to possible dognapping conspiracies and intrigue.

    It is a very lovely story and really just shows how a small animal can have such a profound effect on someone's life. Gobi is an absolutely awesome little dog and I am glad that everything has worked out for her.

    I would highly recommend reading this b

    This true story was so heartwarming and a perfect antidote to the recent dark and bleak books I had read.

    Dion Leonard, an Australian living in Edinburgh, had only been distance running for a few years when he went to China to compete in the Gobi ultra marathon - 155 miles over seven gruelling days (it makes me feel ill just thinking about it). In the desert the daytime temperatures got up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit or even higher so its a real test of endurance. On this race he encountered a litt

    This is an incredible book.  I first heard of Gobi on social media  when Dion set out to bring her home, and followed the story through the devastation of her going missing and the jubilation of her being found.    Devastation and jubilation shared by us all who had been smitten with the story, when Gobi was found I remember the pure joy I felt a feeling that lasted for days and days.  Consequently, it is fantastic to read the behind the social media story and go into more detail of a story I kn ...more

    Having followed Dion and Gobi's story since it broke last year, when it was announced that there was going to be a book about their journey, I knew I had to read it.

    I will admit, I am not normally a fan of non-fiction books. However, the story was just so captivating that I had to know more. And boy, did I get it!

    I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book. The twists, the turns, the sadness, the triumph... All of it utterly engrossed me, from the first page to the very last. I laughed, I

    Confession: I couldn’t say no to the cute little face staring at me from the front cover. It seems I was drawn to Gobi in much the same way author, Dion Leonard, was drawn to becoming her owner!

    Dion uses a combination of flashbacks to his childhood and earlier life, while also following his ultra-marathon race in which life changed forever by meeting Gobi. Usually I don’t like such uses of flashbacks, but Dion does this effortlessly in a way that always maintains a natural flow to the book.

    This is primarily about the author that is an excellent runner, not about Gobi.
