I am not sure what to make of the style At times it reads like a transcript from a documentary on Emil Zatopek Yet it was engaging At times it read as if a favorite uncle or storyteller was bringing us back to the time of a running hero the story being told in present tense It's hard to say how much I miss through the translation but I always trust that the translator has tried to maintain the voice of the author I am curious and will ponder the style for a while It is definitely a great read for runners and former runners and tells of time before the sport was stolen from true athletes by corporate sponsored performance enhancing drugs

An excellent brief portrait of the life of a top athlete in communist Czechoslovakia Echenoz chronicles Emil Zatopek's rise from a non athletic teen working in a shoe factory to an enthusiastic runner and a true sensation of international competition For many years Zatopek was one of the best known celebrity's in his country though his life took a sad turn after his vocal support of Alexander Dubcek's liberalizing but short lived reforms in the late 1960sEchenoz adopts a conversational and often casual tone Reading this book it's easy to imagine that Echenoz constructed a couple of particular narrative vantage points and then worked at creating a style allowing him to slip fluidly between them Trying to pin these vantage points down I began picturing the narrator as perhaps sometimes a close personal friend and sometimes an anonymous countryman who has followed Zatopek's career closely and with great relish And though Zatopek's famous competitions accumulate uickly in this small book there is never any monotony to the races since Echenoz has a great talent for pulling the uniue spectacle out of every sceneFinally I should note that the narrative in this book is relaxed breathes a bit than in some of Echenoz's novels And though it is not uite as challenging as say Chopin's Move the novel is nonetheless a very engaging read
