Book Twenty.

This was all about baseball without actually being about baseball at all. An American college was the setting, a baseball tournament the context and the characters themselves the plot.

I enjoyed it. I was interested, invested. I wanted to know what would happen to these people, if and how things worked out for them. And for the first two-thirds of the book, it was getting a solid four stars.

I didn’t like all of the characters, at least not all of the time, but they were real enough more me to be interested in them, to want to follow their lives for a little while.

Ultimately, the end of the book was a let down to me. The first two-thirds, while enjoyable, were very long. It deserved a more satisfying, less rushed ending, or else it needed to be more heavily edited.

I enjoyed the writing and the characters, but not the construction, delivery and climax of the characters’ stories.
