This quote from Dorothy Parker sums up my feelings on this book: "This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force." That's exactly what I did when I got to the completely predictable (and incredibly disappointing) "surprise" ending. I really can't believe I persevered that long.
This was my favorite book I have ever read. This was not just your typical football book about a team going to the championship and winning. This book was about an individual that overcame all odds and became a very sought after player in the NFL. When you read this book Lewis paints a vivid picture of how Micheal Oher (the main character) grew up and the struggles he was faced with and how he overcame all of these struggles to become the man he is today. This book is very well written and it was the only book that I have ever read that I could not wait for my next encounter with.
