Michael Morpurgo has a way of writing a good solid story and out of the books of his that I have read, I would say that Born to Run is easily his best, mainly because Morpurgo does not compromise the story in anyway. The novel is about a boy named Patrick who rescues a litter of greyhounds and keeps one, which he calls best mate . Born to run is a very good book for me, I think. It is easy to make the reader understand while showing a lot of thoughts. It’s about a greyhound and his amazing journey.
