Customer Review

on 19 December 2011
Sport novels are notoriously hard to write. Even successful multi-million selling authors like John Grisham fall flat. This is not a typical Grisham legal thriller. Instead, he has written a tale about a journeyman quarterback who leaves the NFL to play American football for the Parma Panthers in Italy. Not a bad initial idea, but Rick Dockery's adventures in Italy just aren't that exciting. His team win the Italian Superbowl for a happy ending - no suprise there - but there are few plot twists and little to keep the attention of the reader. The matches themselves are bruished over quickly, as though Grisham realises that describing sport is a pitfall for many authors. Grisham's legal thriller fans will be disappointed, but I'm afraid that sport book fans will be disappointed too.
