Weird. Very Weird. - My Review of Steal Away Home

Published by: Thomas Nelson

Written by: Billy Coffey

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.

Steal Away Home

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.

My conclusion:

Overall, I don't get this book and it left me feeling confused.

I give Steal Away Home 2 out of 5 stars.

I received this book free to review from BookLook. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
