Let’s save the details for later and start with the plot in which we get to follow the story of Eric Horton, he is in high school and has made to the football/soccer team, as a goalie. He is joined by his companions Will and Cole. Then there’s finally Renee, another understudy that has come to America with her father who’s a researcher. ...more
The thing that I didn't like about the book is the suspense part. It could have been more better and make the story more interesting to read.
The characters portrayed are well developed. The characters, you can actua ...more
There's another important and special thing about the protagonist, he is very intuitive. He can literally give his thoughts wings. That part of the story really caught my attention, many a times I guess how a story ends. So color me very happy, I am uber cool special. Now all I need to do is ...more
This book follows around Eric Horton. He is a junior in high school and has made the varsity soccer team, as one of two goalies. Eric seems to be a pretty average student, though he does take a couple AP classes, one being AP Environmental Science. His friends Will and Cole are also in this class. This class is also where he meets Renee, a new student that has come to America with her scientist father. This girl becomes Eric’s love interest throughout t ...more
I find it funny how I read two soccer books back-to-back. Right after The Romeo Club, I jumped right into this one. I mention this because I was in the right sort of mind for the soccer references. It's not that I have anything against soccer, it's just that I personally haven't played in so long, I sort of forget what it's like. But now I'm digressing.
What I meant to get at was this: I've never seen quite a combination like this. A mix of soccer, physics, and.... a French girl. I n ...more
The Field is an interesting YA read that's rather difficult to classify. It's part paranormal, part science. There's a bit of mystery and some romance. One thing I liked about this novel is that it's so different from other books I've read. Most YA authors don't explore science, much less physics. Some theoretical physics theories seem so fantastic, especially things like the universal consciousness (Ouch! Don't hit m ...more
I hate writing bad review because it makes me feel like a horrible person, but I won this book in a First Reads giveaway so I feel obligated to review it. I did not like this book at all. It was so boring that I really struggled to finish it. The teenagers in the book were very unrealistic and the author completely failed at making them sound like real teenagers. She tried way too hard to add a bunch of cool phrases to the teenage ...more
I am not huge on science or soccer, but the premise of this book made me absolutely want t ...more
The soccer games had plenty if excitement and suspense, but Eric's day-to-day life and his experiments with Dr. Auberge just didn't keep me engaged very well.
The book is well written, but I think it would have been more interesting if Eric had figured out his ability to pr ...more

Eric Horton is a junior at Monroe HS. He's on the soccer team and taking AP Environmental Science. He dominates the soccer field, but he's also learning about the Universal Energy Field, alternative energy sources, navigating new love, and maintaining life-long friendships.
I loved this story of discovery. Eric is ex ...more
And that's where the second field comes into the plot. The Universal Energy Fiel ...more
The idea of this book is quite appealing, and I do wonder how much of the science is true, given the writer's background in science.
