I felt I was THERE, in the story!
The narrator, the writer, because I identified with is character.
I laughed and cried! It really made me think about my own childhood and how we played baseball in the field at BBQ's or in the park on weekends, how I wanted to play 3rd base JUST LIKE MY DAD... I had a dream...
This story really showed me the behind the scenes relationship of pitchers and batters; their "rules".
An amazing story wrapped up in a lesson of history, geography,endurance and perseverance!
Some of the things that happened to the POWs in the prison camps was very hard for me to listen to; I wept at the strength and faith of these men.
I would have struggled with the Japanese names and phrases.
I was humbled and educated by this book. Well worth listening to.
Will listen again!
There's so much information, so many things I took from the book to apply to my own life that I'll keep this in my Kindle to listen to a couple times a year.
I just kept waiting for the story to pick up or get interesting and it NEVER did. What a complete waste of my time and money!
It was boring. The story line was dull.
I won't throw the baby out with the bathwater...the narrator did the best he could with the material he had.
