    Even the most die-hard baseball fans don't know the true story of William Blockade Billy Blakely. He may have been the greatest player the game has ever seen, but today no one remembers his name. He was the first - and only - player to have his existence completely removed from the record books.

    What did you love best about Blockade Billy?

    Baseball - it is a baseball book, from the "old school" type baseball books. S. King is sooooo good, with descriptions, it is easy to get a visual picture in your head of the setting / time frame, etc.


    What other book might you compare Blockade Billy to and why?

    "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" was my first thought - regarding a comparison. However Blockade Billy is really too short to compare, I wanted more! I thought it was too long to be a magazine article ( and too long to be considered a short story) and too short for a book. But I did like it.


    Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first. I thought Craig Wasson's performance was very good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I wanted to listen to this while doing my training run. Either I've too slow, or the book was too short, because it ended before the run :(


    Any additional comments?

    This is not classic S. King - it is different for him. I'm somewhat of a S. King fanatic. He is the ultimate story teller!
