Gold is the story of Zoe and Kate, world-class athletes who have been friends and rivals since their first day of Elite training. They've loved, fought, betrayed, forgiven, consoled, gloried, and grown up together. Now, on the eve of London 2012, their last Olympics, both women will be tested to their physical and emotional limits. They must confront each other and their own mortality to decide, when lives are at stake: What would you sacrifice for the people you love, if it meant giving up the thing that was most important to you in the world?

Very Good--but not great--
I enjoyed this new novel, but it did not end up being one of my favorites. I guess I was hoping for a little more of the sport/Olympic storyline than personal drama, but it is a novel after all! It was written and narrated very well. My ratings reflect how much I enjoy a particular book, and overall, Gold was not a bad way to spend my time and credit--

What did you love best about Gold?
I loved the complexity of the relationships and the revealing of the backstory in small doses.
What did you like best about this story?
It was a blast to read during the olympics and be able to watch the athletes in action in real time.
Which character – as performed by Emilia Fox – was your favorite?
All of the characters were great, but I think I liked Tom, the coach, best.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I'll never forget the scene with Zoe and her brother. Never.
Any additional comments?
I was so addicted to listening that I extended my workouts so I could keep listening! I had horrible withdrawl after the book was over and I'm having a hard time choosing my next listen because I was so immersed in Gold.
