The book also gives a road map for finding success in basketball . It should be read by anyone with a child who takes basketball seriously.

I recommend this book for anyone . It was a fantastic epic story . The type of tale of African life that has been destroyed by the legacy of slavery and colonialism . The type of tale that we know must’ve been told but not given the opportunity to be spread to the masses . A story of love , betrayal good and evil magic and empire . These are the tales that fuel imagination and creativity , while just providing a damn good ride

The book was a great continuation on the series . The changes in character were right for the changes in their life stories . The book kept you guessing and wondering who were the villains behind the main story .
I don’t get any of the superficial criticism . Which were way off based .if you’ve read and like the others , you’ll love this one

The NBA has returned to prominence on the backs of phenoms like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Garnett. The media promotes them, the shoe companies pay them, and America applauds. But how exactly do such players reach the pros? What do they give up to get there? And what happens to those who fall short?

I rated this book a five because ,even though a written documentary , it was very entertaining .
Additionally , I found myself rooting for and hating some of the people.
The book provided a glimpse into what it take to become a top b ball player and what I might need to help my son with for him to succeed with his basketball goals.
1/2 way into the book I immediate researched and hired a trainer for my son and some of his friends . Some people had an issue with a female reader if a male author . Foolishness the narrator was great

All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

Just a fantasy which probably will be hard to rival . After awhile I felt like I had taken the journey with the gunslinger.
It's very hard to describe how a book of this magnitude really creates an emotional state of being within the listener that moves from the vicarious to heartfelt involvement in this epic journey . Very rarely could anyone tell a story like this which covered many lives and years within years and lives within lives and have a listener almost hate for it to end
I almost began to feel like king was sending messages to me .
Fantastic

This series of books is like going on an adventure. The characters are great and represent a rich variety of American symbols.
The gunslinger motif alone could've won me over but the addition of American youth, inner city white and educated black made it a powerful story of our reality.Just read it🌚

But Akin actually has five parents: a male and female human, a male and female Oankali, and a sexless Ooloi. The Oankali and Ooloi are part of an alien race that rescued humanity from a devastating nuclear war, but the price they exact is a high one the aliens are compelled to genetically merge their species with other races, drastically altering both in the process.
