Move 2008 – week 31 update + book review


More focus on the arms. Still feeling good and strong. Some pedaling, walking and gardening kept the aerobics up. A pretty good week overall. Now for the book:

Bleachers Bleachers by John Grisham


My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this on the flight to Austin two weeks ago. Totally up my alley since it is about an iconic high school football coach and the impact he had on multiple generations of players. The former players gather in the bleachers at the school awaiting the death of the old coach as he succumbs to cancer. They slowly open up to each other sharing stories of the coach, not always glowing ones and in the memories of these players, the character of a dying man comes to life. It’s an easy read as Grisham usually is, but also as is typical of his writing, there are some unexpected twists and excellent development of the characters.
