Fantasy and baseball? An odd combination to be sure, but Chabon pulls it off. I've passed this book up at least five times because of the baseball connection (I am not a fan of the sport.) Finally, I chose to listen because of my husband's love of The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Chabon's Pulitzer winner from a few years back.
Summerland wasn't anything I expected, and I loved every minute of it. The story is sunny and fun and makes you remember being a kid on a warm, green summer day. I still don't like baseball, but I can appreciate a great story.
