not just for football fans...,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game (Taschenbuch)
Ok, I admit it: I bought this book because I liked the movie preview. I'm not normally a reader of biographies, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect.
I was pleasantly surprised. Michael Lewis writes a fluid story (though I'm not sure I understood half the football history/strategy that found it's way into this book) that's easy to follow even to someone who has no idea about the rules of american football.
The story itself is fascinating, touching in parts and intriguing all the way through, granting the reader a little insight not only into the whole world of college sports (or rather pre-college sports) but also shows how great the gap between the rich and the poor, whatever their respective skin colors, can be. It also gives the reader a peek into the lives of what seems to an outsider a typical well-to-do born-again christian family. This was particularly interesting to me (I'm european, not many born-again christians over here) in that it managed to convey in a very casual and unobtrusive sort of way the beliefs, ideals and convictions of these people.
