The Rookie: Book 1: Galactic Football League | [Scott Sigler]

The Rookie: Book 1: Galactic Football League

The Godfather Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assassinated. Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."

    "Supurb reading - Highly recommended"
    Where does The Rookie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Rookie is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to period.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There are too many highlights to list. Basically I am a Sigler junkie and love this series. As someone who isn't from the US it also has me hooked on the NFL now too.


    Any additional comments?

    This sci-fi novel is "Even Given Sunday" meets "The Godfather" meets "Aliens". It's a fabulous romp which I first listened to as a podcast. Since then I have bought the hardcover and the audiobook.
