This is the first time I've ever just stopped listening to a book and deleted it. I'm a die hard baseball fan but this is just a mish mash of self serving drivel from clearly 2 of the most talented, but self absorbed athletes of out time...don't waste your credits on this one !!
Just the reader...it's a story about a hockey icon ! If you love the history of the game and the changes Bobby Hull ( good & bad ) brought to the game, then you'll like this. If you were around then and have fond memeories of those times, then this will bring your memories flooding back.
It brought me back to a time so long ago. I was a 12 year old kid in Winnipeg when Bobby Hull signed witht he WHA Winnipeg Jets. My dad took us down to Portage and Main to for the ceremony and I can still remeber it like it was yesterday.
We all loved and played hockey and everyone wanted to be Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe or Bobby Orr.
To hear some of the behind the scenes situations and dealings was a bonus.
I probably got his autograph fifty times and he always had a smile on his face and always had time for the kids and the fans.
Despite the picture this author tries to paint a times, I'll always be a Golden Jet fan !
Find someone who knows even 1% about the game and it's history or at least proof the performance before you make it available. This guy mispronounced the name of just about every person and place. It made it sometimes hard to listen to. It may not seem imprtant to the author, but only true fans will be interested in listening to this and they deserve better. A real hockey writer wouldn't have let this happen, it's direspectful to the players of that era.
This is the worst novel I've ever listened to...what a waste of money.
