The Greatest Story
By R. Hughes
This is a wonderful read, and this comment is from a "Two-Book-A-Week" Reader! I have read the novels of Dickens, and this book reminds me in so many ways of Charles Dickens approach to the novel. A stimulating story, a slice of present day life, good guys, with even villains having their attributes! Underlying all, social mores, lessons to be learned, and who will ever forget "Joe & Marie". Finally, just a touch of the supernatural in the purest way, to stimulate our sense of forever! In summary, I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages and gender, even if they have never heard of "baseball!"
Ingenious Story With An Incredible Ending. AMAZING!
I am not a sports enthusiast, this was the first book I've read that
had baseball as a theme, or any sport. Something about it intrigued
me greatly so I purchased it. I am a bit of a history buff so I
thoroughly enjoyed all of the history that was interwoven throughout.
But this was also the first book I've ever read in one day! It was
that engrossing. The story, the layout of it, the twists and turns,
and everything about it was ingenious. And as I read from a previous
review, the ending cannot be described accurately. One has to read it
to believe it. GREAT BOOK! GREAT READ! WOULD MAKE A GREAT MOVIE! 5
Stars aren't enough!
Baseball at its best
By R. Callori
After reading this book you come away with a feeling of being uplifted and transcended into a life you wish you were a part of. It made my love of baseball have a deeper meaning, one I will carry with me forever. These "baseball buddies" are as real to me as any friend or family member. A very memorable read.
is a story that starts agonizingly slow, but finishes in the big
league of stories that are magical, compelling and wonderful. It's a
Wonderful Life baseball story with so many twists and turns that
finally ends like all great stories should. The characters are
compelling, truly human beings whose empathy you share. As you turn
each readable page and the story unwinds, you feel a part of it. It's
baseballs best story as advertised. It's the Gone With the Wind of
baseball magical stories with an ending you cannot reveal because you
could not describe it adequately as Chris Valenti has arranged it
with genius. Five stars aren't enough. This book bats 1000.
book is incredible. I loved, loved, loved it. I read it cover to
cover without putting it down. I couldn't; I was captivated after the
first few pages. Mr. Valenti does a wonderful job, with so many
twists and turns, you'll never figure out the ending. Don't think
twice about reading this one......you most definitely won't regret
it. This would make a wonderful movie.
book I've read in years!
usually very skeptical about claims of being the greatest of anything
so I stayed away for about a day or so then I finally made the
plunge. Glad I did. If this isn't made into a movie I'd be very
surprised. I am very familiar with every baseball title referenced in
the description and most are my favorites. So I was floored when I
finished this book to have learned that every claim held up
specifically. This was also the quickest I've read a book in a while
and I think that says something. Bravo to author Valenti! I think he
has something here and gave us something to truly enjoy. I am very
tough on things and was planning on being tough here too, but I
can't. I can't believe I'm saying this, but this might the greatest
baseball story I've ever read or known. I give it 5 stars!
baseball fantasy epic ever!!
is a must read for baseball enthusiasts, nostalgia buffs and all
others who are tired of reading some of the mundane writings that
have appeared over that last few years. If you read one book this
year make it this one. From the first chapter it has you in its grip.
The uncle, the mystery tale he is about to unfold in chapter one.
After that you can not put it down! Buy it, read it, recommend it, No
Through Time review
can honestly say I've read Innings Through Time more than once. It's
the kind of story that leads you on, wanting you to find out what
will happen next, And it doesn't disappoint you. I found it so
enthralling that after completing it I found myself rereading it.
This book is must read for anyone who enjoys a good story with a
supernatural twist. Steven King move over.
was a wonderful book mixing baseball, time travel, and fantasy. I
could not put this book down. I would highly recommend reading this
you enjoy contemplating a book long after you've read it, this book
is for you. It is NOT just for baseball fans. It is a fun and
captivating read for the young, old, despaired & the hopeful. It
is unpredictable and pleasantly surprising because no sooner you
think you know where it is going, you discover that you don't, as
each enchanting chapter is read. This book has it all; love, tragedy,
mystery, magic and lots of history. The author does a great job
bringing the reader into the hearts and minds of his characters. And
the historical facts interwoven throughout the book causes the reader
to remind himself that the story is fiction. Can someone please make
this into a movie?
