It's about the 64' World Series between the Yankees and the Cardinals. I've only started it but it's good so far, I'm a huge fan of sports books. "Friday Night Lights" is one of the best books I've ever read, highly recommend it for every football fan.
Recently I also read "Five Families - The Rise, Fall and Resurgence of America's Most Powerful Mafia Empires". Great read, a little historical but very interesting.
I'm currently studying a lot so I haven't been reading much lately, which is sad. I can't wait until all my tests for the semester are done.
Just started the Watchmen graphic novel. Heard it was incredible.
I clicked on this thread to write the same exact thing
I'm about halfway through...having never read a graphic novel before so far it's pretty damn good (addictive too) though not 100% what I expected based off the movie trailers and such. Good read though.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz.
Won the Pulitzer.
Good story, well written, the only thing that ticked me off was that, because it was about a Dominican family, he felt it necessary to drop passages--sometimes crucial passages--wholly in Spanish with no attempt to help the non-Spanish speaking reader understand what he was talking about.
Team of Rivals - lives up to the hype but a little too much emphasis on the million or so players in the politics of Lincoln's cabinet and the Union gov't, not enough (for me) on the specific battles though I understand it's beyond the intended scope.
