The writing team that delivered the bestselling Faithful, about the 2004 Red Sox championship season, takes listeners to the ballpark again, and to a world beyond.

It’s Rays/Mariners, and David Price is breezing through the line-up.

The only reason I didn't give this book five stars is because of the narraration. I'm a diehard Stephen King fan, and like his audiobooks best when he narrartes them. The person reading this book just doesn't seem to pick up on King's subtle sarcasm the way others who have recorded his books do. The storyline is fast paced and interesting though, and the narraration doesn't take away from that. Definitely worth the money; it's a fun, quick listen.
This short story by Stephen King is thought provoking, well written and entertaining. The reader is enjoyable and the pacing is well done. Reading King is like settling in to chat with an old friend...... It doesn't disappoint!
