Not exactly the Holmes story you would expect. It took a little while for the story to develop. I was losing faith early but the book hit a stride and I enjoyed the latter 2/3's. Be a little patient and I think you will enjoy it if you like Holmes mysteries.
It is a well told story and there are lessons to be learned from someone who made herself into one of sports biggest success stories. Nobody did it for her...Pat made Pat and she had great influence on many lives. I think the story brings that out well without over doing it. I am not a Tennessee fan per se, but I am a fan of success and positive influence. The book is well done in my opinion.
The book is from two perspectives. A spy first and then her best friend. It is like two books in one. How it is developed is very unique and I think more than a few will have a difficult time warming to it. I was close to giving up on it but stuck it out and was glad I did. I thought it turned out to be a very well told story in the end.
The book took a long time to make a point. I almost gave up on it a few times but stuck it out. It does get interesting, but I think it could have gotten there a lot sooner. A little more complicated than it needed to be. If you are going to go with it, patience will be the word of the day...it will eventually get there.
I thought this book did a great job describing the ins and outs of how college football works. Some interesting stories about major college football programs and the coaches and kids that make them up. Well written and told.
When you buy one of these stories, you probably know what you are going to get up front. You have an expectation. The book does not disappoint. The story is fast paced and holds your interest. If you like this kind of book, you will like this book I think.
I just happened upon this book as a recommendation. I like spy novels and this one did not disappoint. The reader did a good job and the story moved along well. I hope to find more like it.
