His inner thoughts of how he felt about being pitched at by Clements and what he was thinking when Clements threw the broken bat at him.
No, I haven't.
Yes, his feelings towards how the NY fans accepted him and backed him as well as how he felt with and dealt with all the events surrounding 9/11. His big home run in the return game after 9/11.
Simply a must read for a NY Mets fan.
The final chapter was the best of all the chapters.
Very monotone. Detracted from the story.
More story than just bedroom scenes.
Book is listed as "unabridged" but it reads/listens as if it was abridged. There are so many places that seem to be skipped over that if there was more context it would be more interesting and draw you in more. Good bones, but needs more.
This is my first by Catherine Bybee.
Yes. I enjoyed looking in while Ree fell in love with her Marbaro Man.
It is the story of falling in love we all would like to experience firsthand.
This is hard because there are so many, but, when he asked her to marry him I think tops the list.
Here again, there were many. Every time you got to witness their growing love for each other touched me very much.
Just wonderful to see a real-life love grow in this age of disposible everything.
Enjoyed a love story based in times where showing an ankle was a no-no.
The dislike to love turn of the story.
My first listen by Veida Dehmlow.
Most extreme reaction was I didn't want to turn it off and stayed up quite a few nights when I should have been sleeping just to keep listening to the story.
Could relate to the character telling the story. Could feel for her story about leaving Ireland and coming to a whole new country.
She tells the story with an Irish accent where appropriate. Made you feel you were actually hearing characters speaking in person.
The trials of coming to a whole new way of life.
Enjoyed the book until the last chapter. There should have been at least one more chapter to bring the story to a close. Left so many things up in the air - too many loose ends and not those at least I felt good about deciding for myself what she was going to do. I would have preferred a nice neat package of the story lines all tied up. You are lead to believe she is headed back to America, but does she. Does she follow through with her marriage? Does she get the promotion she worked so hard at college for? Does she live happily ever after with Tony? Even if they didn't go into details, a chapter written later in her life with a look-back on these items would tie everything up in a neat package.
Too many questions left unanswered at the end.
