The town idolizes him. Players old and young have returned to pay their respects. Neely congregates with them on the bleachers as they wait for Rake to finally pass away. It is in the many conversations and revelations that follow that Neely can confront what his explosive relationship with Rake really meant to him and, in the moment of loss, find redemption.

"I defy even the hardest jock not to shed a tear." (Daily Mirror [London])
This story of an over the hill football player returning home for his coaches funeral just goes on and on. Pretty boring stuff - especially if you don't understand American football - particularly during the interludes of football announcing.
Grisham has two books families i know.
the epic movies material about legal staff, which i really like, and the small, shorter "Human" staff which i LOVE.
add Bleachers to skipping Christmas, playing for Pizza and admire his look into the human soul.
when author is the narrator add extra level to my admiration, it takes the book to next level most times. on this one, it sure does.
"What an annoying voice"
I really should listen to the previews before purchasing the books. This book is read by the author. I think he should stick to writing!
i have read this a bit per day i thought it was good but i did not understand it as much untill i listen to it in all at once because reading it is using my thoughts not the authors! but listening is the author's thoughts and experiences.
