All reviews for Born to Run

  1. okay

    I got this book a while ago now, and when I first got it, I loved it! Michael Morpurgo became my favourite author, and I read all his books. Now I have really got bored of him. I re-read born to run recently, and it was not very enjoyable, maybe because I’m older now.

  2. This is a heart warming story about a dog and its three friends Patrick, Becky and Joe. After being rescued from the canal as a pup to wandering the streets homeless, Best Friend/ Brighteyes/Paddywack has seen it all. Read this book and join this incredible greyhound in its many lives.

    I could tell this book was sad from the moment Patrick saved Best Mate from the canal. It shows you the whole life journey of Best Mates life right from the beginning. This book has to be read carefuly to understand it properly.Brilliant book!

    This is a really moving book about one girl and her beloved dog who travel the town in search of a loving home. I would recommend this book to anyone, and I would also give Born To Run a 4 out of 5.
