Today, we are proud to feature the voice of T-Bear from the United States. T-Bear writes about how he could not put down The Greener the Grass until he finished the book.
Started reading this late one evening with eyes half asleep, but couldn’t put it down until the end. I thoroughly enjoyed going through the ride of small-town to big-time, being on the ‘inside’ of the big leagues, and feeling the emotions of the writer/character along the way.
Who knew that a big time ‘jock’ had similar doubts and fears (and voices in your head!) as the average Joe (not Namath!) with a big dream. There were some edge of your seat moments, and I found myself hoping for the call, the historical pass, the miracle, the paycheck, the acceptance, and the future!
Life is a roller coaster and this book was a great example of one undulating ride. I also liked the writing style once I got into the poetry of it. And, like some other readers… I wanted part 2 asap!
PS: I’m from the pocket protector world, so did appreciate that character too.
Thank-you T-Bear for your poignant words and review. You, dear reader, inspire us to write and to live by the words we write too. You are our purpose at Happy Living, and we are so grateful to you. It is both humbling and incredibly gratifying to hear the voice of readers like T-Bear. Thank you for sharing the journey of Happy Living with us.
