The race was said to be the most difficult in the world Seven days spent traversing the Mongolian steppes on wild ponies Not my cuppa but fun to experience through someone else Lara at loose ends decided this was something she needed to do despite the costly entry fee She prepares little and becomes a nineteen year old underdog though she soon has others pulling for her There are vivid descriptions of the Mongolian steppes many allusions and uotes from Genghis Kahn We meet dome of the other racers and one young woman whom Lara is determined to beat There are funny incidents much self reflection but the prose is witty self deprecating The story is fast paced never boring and a joy to read Humans love of horses and the endurance it takes to even race in such an event let alone win Which by the way is not a spoiler because this is known from the get go

Review Rough Magic

Download Ó PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Lara Prior-Palmer Lara Prior-Palmer ↠ 2 Read Review Rough Magic Cided to enter the race As she boarded a plane to East Asia she was utterly unprepared for what awaited herRiders often spend years preparing to compete in the Mongol Derby a course that recreates the horse messenger system developed by Genghis Khan and many fail to finish Prior Palmer had no formal training She was driven by her own restlessness stubbornness and a lifelong love of horses She raced for ten days through extreme heat and terrifying storms catching a few hours of sleep where she could at the homes of nomadic families Batt. I have mixed feelings about this book The setting and perspective are great a memoir by the first female and youngest winner of the Mongol Derby an endurance horse race The writer s style is hit and miss A little too cursory too eager to float into lines of poetry when action is needed My biggest beef is turning the author s main competition another young woman and first time racer into a villain after barely laying eyes on her This woman s chief sin being that she arrived prepared confident and ambitious And so our protagonist hates her How childish How petty for a woman who continually portrays herself as independent minded Although we know who wins the ending still feels like a let downOverall an interesting read but not the riveting horseback adventure I d hoped for
