it was amazing
Read from September 28, 2011 to September 11, 2012

I loved this book. Ostensibly a novel about baseball, it is really a love story. Or stories about the limits of and passion and commitment between a man and a woman, a man and a man, a father and a daughter, two friends. It is a beautifully simple story about how one errant throw, a symbolic deviation from the intended path, can destroy your belief about how your life should unfold. Life never unfolds along the lines we want. We go astray and then find new paths. The end point is always the same. But the unforeseen path, the implications of the errant throw, are what makes life worth living.
