4.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent Book, June 5 2002
The book itself is good overall and is a story that all baseball fans should read. This book is a reading level that 12 years of age and older could read, and when you do, you will get tied up in reading it all the time. At first when you start reading, you might think that it's a boring book, but you shouldn't stop because it gets better. The book starts off with Ray Kinsella, the main character, hearing a voice saying, "If you build it, he will come." This meant that if Ray built a baseball feild, Shoeless Joe Jackson would come. These words inspired him to do so, and he did.
The reason this book was appealing to me was because I am into baseball myself. I think anyone could enjoy this book, baseball fan or not.
