Book Thoughts May 2016

Boys Among Men by Jonathan Abrams is about the years between 1995 and 2005 when high school basketball players skipped college and went to the NBA. Players covered include Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnet but the book also covers some less successful players. It is interesting.

Brady vs Manning is interesting but not as good as I hoped. I thought it would be more interesting than it turned out to be but I am not sure why. Gary Myers is a good writer but his best book might be the Catch from a few years back. Brady vs. Manning is still worth reading though.

Extreme Prey is good. It is the latest Lucas Davenport novel from John Sandford. Lucas is unemployed but recruited to do a favor for the governor but danger lurks nearby. (I missed the last novel in the series, so I don’t know why Lucas quit.) Richard Ferrone reads it on audio.
