Reviews

Novelists O'Nan and King set out to keep parallel diaries of the 2004 Boston Red Sox season not knowing that the infamous "Curse of the Bambino" would end after 86 years with a World Series win. A chronicle of disappointment and despair was thus elevated into a celebration of a magical season. As both writers describe the highlights of the games they attended or watched on television, their quite different personalities come into focus. O'Nan, a converted Pirates fan, has a boyish enthusiasm, carrying his glove to games to snare foul balls and asking players for autographs. King, who has had his heart broken too many times, places everything in the context of Red Sox lore. Faithful may be one of those cases where the audio version is superior to the book because the readers do such an outstanding job. Adam Grupper captures O'Nan's innocent optimism, while veteran King reader Ron McLarty conveys King's crusty cynicism. The casual fan who does not know that "Lonnie" refers to Jim Lonborg, pitching star of the 1967 Red Sox, may be bewildered, but others will relish this encounter with two such knowledgeable spectators. Highly recommended.-Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
