Maybe. Both are very good. I like the way the narrator brings Welch to life. Just right!
Franco. He's funny and devoted.
This was the first.
It's not really that kind of book. There are some emotional bits, but mostly it's entertaining, uplifting, and funny at times.
You don't have to love football to enjoy this book. Short and sweet!
I'd give this 3 1/2 stars. The story was fun, simple, and enjoyable. I loved how it began and how you get to know Nick, the main character. I also really, really liked the ending. I listen to these Grisham books about sports with my 12 & 14 year old step sons, this is our third of Grisham's, This was the best of the three. The narrator just wasn't very warm and didn't include any of the humor in his voice, he was a bad choice for this story.
Still worth a listen though.
Not a timeless classic by any means, but a nice break from my usual reading material (and welcome after a stinker of an audiobook)
Not relevatory, but for someone who knows football, or has travelled in Italy (or wants to) an entertaining short read.
John Grisham makes a great come back with this book. It has a few twist to keep you interested, and it isn't predictable as his lawyer stories.
This book just makes you feel good. The character are great, he describes Italy and its people to the tee and tells a story in a way that makes you want to experience it first hand. Grisham continues to create works of art. I am sure this will hit the big screen. I highly recommend it.
I am not a fan of John Grisham. This book looked good to me in spite of that and I ended up enjoying it immensely. While it did have the trademark character out of nowhere that really had no place in the story which always drives me crazy, I found this book to be really quite enjoyable.
My husband and I were very disppointed in this book. It is not up to the standard that we've grown to expect from John Grisham. Filled with bad language and illicit sex, this book has no good story line. We would give it no stars, but since one star is the lowest, that's what we gave.
