I was unhappy about the amount of baseball in this book. I either wanted more baseball and less people or more people and less baseball. But! I was impressed with Harbach's ability to make me care about sports. I like baseball, but this book made me like it more. Also, I feel like in adult books everyone sleeps with each other AND NO ONE KNOWS WHY.

Christiana I think I'm probably thinking about it too much, but I just want a motive for sex once in awhile. Just like, one in three times.

Tamara I'm with Christiana on this one.

Mandy Isn't having sex its own motive?

Christiana I don't think it always is! It seems like I keep reading adult books where the text is all like "he was loafing around her house and slept in her bed and smelled and then they had sex". So they do and then during or right after they're all like "I don't even like this fish face." WHY? I just don't understand how regular people are supposed to understand that when the person isn't even into them in the slightest way.

Alison LOLOLOLOL, I don't think I've encountered this particular phenomena in adult books, but now I'm totally gonna be on the lookout for it.
