I was excited to read and review this book because it sounded unique and because it had a baseball theme. I grew up following baseball and thought this book would be an interesting read.
Steal Away Home tells the story of a mine living with regrets. Through flashbacks, this book shares the story of the man's past all while a baseball game is playing out in the present.
Who This Book is For:
I thought this would be a good book for baseball fans, but I don't really know who will like the whole weirdness of it.
What I liked:
The story definitely kept my attention, even if it left me confused.
The characters were interesting.
What I didn’t like:
I don't get this book at all. I don't really know what the ending was supposed to mean. I don't know what the message was supposed to be. I don't know who in the story is supposed to be "good" and who isn't. I don't really understand any of it. Is it pro-suicide? Is that not what happened? Is it all imagined? I don't know if it's just me but I really did not get the book.
There are some elements that Christians might not appreciate, including some language.
Overall, I don't get this book and it left me feeling confused.
I give Steal Away Home 2 out of 5 stars.
