Much as I tried, I couldn't get interested in this book. The negative reviews were right and I wish I'd paid them heed.
Not a great book but a pleasant diversion for baseball fans especially those who have sacrificed a few brain cells for Heilemann-doused Cubs games. Will is always fun to read and his love of baseball (and Wrigley and the Cubs) is clear and dominant.
The narration was pretty good but the narrator doesn't know enough about baseball to know how to pronounce Sutter (he pronounced it how it looks) or Alou (whom he called "A-lo-oo").
This may be a very good book for all I know (although I am doubtful). But this audio book is almost unlistenable. The narrator's monotonous presentation is bad enough, but the background music (apparently someone over-produced this audio book) is both irritating and too loud, it actually drowns out the reading. I forced myself to listen to a half hour of this terrible presentation before having mercy on myself. A wasted Audible credit as far as I'm concerned.
