Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in New England, nine-year-old Trisha gets lost in the woods while on a walk with her family. Her only comforts are the radio broadcasts of Boston Red Sox games featuring her favorite player, closing pitcher Tom Gordon. Lonely, frightened, starving, and cold, Gordon becomes Trisha's imaginary companion - and the key to her survival against an unidentified someone (or something) leaving death and destruction in its wake.




The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is read by celebrated actress Anne Heche, star of numerous major motion pictures including Return to Paradise and Wag the Dog.

    "Can see its value, just not for me."

    I can see why it is as renowned as it is, but it isn't a book I would read by choice, or read ever again.

    Story
    "I was totally along for the ride!"

    I remember when I was 7 years old going to the Bronx zoo with my parents. Around the Elephants (which I wanted to see more than anything) I realized that my parents were no longer right next to me. They were gone and I was lost. An absolute panic washed over me as I tried to collect my scattered adolescent thoughts. I cried and shook all over. It felt like 2 hours till I was found. In reality it was more like 2 min.

    This story is like that times a million! I remembered that feeling of despair.

    I really enjoyed it!

    Story
    "Hit or miss...this was a miss for me"

    With Stephen King it's really a hit or miss. He can hit it out of the ballpark or it can burn and crash. This book was recommended by my co-worker as her favorite of his works. Not for me. I really disliked this book. I thought it was boring and tedious. One of those books that I was simply waiting for it to end.

    Story
    "Quite different. Good, not great"

    I enjoyed this book, but it's almost entirely the ramblings and internal turmoil of a young girl lost in the woods. (And some of those ramblings were really very funny.) I guess i missed the normal dialog you get in a more typical story. Like i said, i enjoyed it, but not a favorite. Narration was really quite good.

    "Great!"

    Amazingly written. Never a boring moment. Just pure suspense. And attention to detail. Nothing short of what I expect from Stephan King.
