really liked it

"The Art of Fielding" is a captivating novel about the discovery of a baseball prodigy and his journey toward potentially being drafted to play professional baseball. Having said that, I would not call this a book about baseball. Yes, that is the backdrop for the story as the main characters attend college and play on a team together -- however, it's simply a engrossing story with compelling characters that live, breathe, and reach out from the pages and take hold of you. I'm purposely not revealing much about the story because the beauty of the book is in the directions it takes as it surprises you page after page.

NOTE: if you like this book, also check out "How a Book is Born: The Making of The Art of Fielding." It's an A+ look into the publishing world.

Both books, highly recommended.
