a true life story of nine men and a boat,
This review is from: The Boys In The Boat (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nine Boys and a Boat by Daniel James Brown for me was a great read which for one main reason it was a true story which showed so much faith in a sport and of course "the boat".
There is a main character within this fascinating book but I for me the main star was the actual boat - as it for me was the centre of the storyline. This is not a normal book speaking about people's experiences at their time of the Olympics but with Hitler actually being there, this story is truly unique and exceptional.
I would highly recommend The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown as not only a terrific book but one with so much more than a typical book of fiction as the author spoke of the races taking place I could almost see the action happening straight in front of me. The author has a wonderful talent of bringing the story to his audience and for that simple reason I would recommend this book to any reader who enjoys a good factual read based on characters like no other.
