2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing, 27 April 2010
This review is from: Zimmer Men: The Trials and Tribulations of the Ageing Cricketer (Paperback)
I was expecting great things about this book having read the reviews on amazon and having read Penguins Stopped Play a book about the Captain Scott XI. Zimmer Men is another book about that same team, but where the late and great Harry Thompson succeeded, Marcus Berkmann fails and fails miserably. The story is pleasant enough but there are a number of books in this area about the travails of a village cricket team so you need something a bit special to stand out and I am afraid this book is not special. I was really disappointed in the end and would not recommend this book at all. I am now reading Fatty Batter which is a great book on the same theme, but Penguins Stopped Play stands out as the leader. Buy that, not Zimmer Men.
