Run by Ann Patchett Book Summary

"Engaging, surprising, provocative and moving...a thoroughly intelligent book, an intimate domestic drama that nonetheless deals with big issues touching us all: religion, race, class, politics and, above all else, family." -- Washington Post

From New York Times bestselling author Ann Patchett comes an engrossing story of one family on one fateful night in Boston where secrets are unlocked and new bonds are formed.

Since their mother's death, Tip and Teddy Doyle have been raised by their loving possessive and ambitions father. As the former mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle wants to see is sons in politics, a dream the boys have never shared. But when an argument in a blinding New England snowstorm inadvertently causes an accident that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard Doyle cares about is his ability to keep his children--all his children--safe.

Set over a period of twenty-four hours, Run takes us from the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard to a home for retired Catholic Priests in downtown Boston. It shows us how worlds of privilege and poverty can coexist only blocks apart from each other, and how family can include people you've never even met. As an in her bestselling novel, Bel Canto, Ann Patchett illustrates the humanity that connects disparate lives, weaving several stories into one surprising and endlessly moving narrative. Suspenseful and stunningly executed, Run is ultimately a novel about secrets, duty, responsibility, and the lengths we will go to protect our children.

How did I miss this book? Ann Patchett can spin a tale, but she is a master at the the mental, emotional, and spiritual machinations of her characters and how they weave into each other’s lives. Very good read.

Too bad. This book is a train wreck.

- Kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing did2 star

Based on the book description, I went into this read expecting something more exciting, so my review is definitely skewed by that, but I just found Run very boring. It was well written, but I didn't really care what happened to the characters. Once I realized it wasn't getting any better, I stopped reading. It took me a long time to realize that - I read 9 out of 11 chapters.

- Not my favorite but a 5 star none the less.5 star

Everything Ann Patchett writes is more than worthy of 5 stars and "Run" is no exception. While not my favorite I did enjoy this book so much. The character development in ALL her books is flawless. It does't get better than Ann Patchett so read them all!
