    High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was the best quarterback to play for the Messina Spartans. 15 years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into a football dynasty. Now, as Coach Rake's "boys" sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake – or hate him.

    Overall

    This audio/book has no beginning and no end. It does not have a significant plot. I just wonder what Mr. Grisham had in mind when he wrote this book. Very very badly written book. I am very disappointed. I also think that Mr. Grisham should not read his own books. This may have been a problem with the audio itself. It is very hard for me to keep my review in the guidelines because I did, to my chagrin, spend the dollars to hear/read this book. In the future I will be more careful when selecting one of his novels. The hate love with the coach was never developed in the book. He should have spent a good deal more time in defining his hero/antihero approach. I can only give this book a one star for the effort of writing it. I can only support my claims by the total number of books I have purchased in the past several years. This is the worst of all of them.
