really liked it
bookshelves: american, sport, friendship

I quite liked "The Art of Fielding". It was an unpretentious read set at a factitious College in the US. The setting and characters were well evoked and even though I never thought I'd enjoy a book about baseball, this offered much more than a simple book about sport. Right towards the end of the story is a great quote about soul - "soul isn't something a person is born with but something that must be built, by effort and error, study and love. And you did that with more dedication than most, that work of building a soul- not for your own benefit but for the benefit of those who knew you". In my opinion, this quote might define the book - "The Art of Fielding" has soul!
