    World Series Book Review

    ¿I¿ll just turn and take it in the shoulder blade.¿ Roy thought. The pitch from Miller then swerved and hit Roy in the head. That was a very important part from the book ¿World Series¿. The book is about a World Series played between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Cleveland Indians. The book starts out with Roy, the Dodgers right fielder and the story¿s main character, getting hit in the head. The Dodgers fall behind in the series three games to one. Then Roy rejoins the Dodgers and they win the World Series in seven games. This was a great story if you like baseball. One of the main reasons I liked the book was I liked the way the author, John Tunis, described each play. He did a great job of expressing the sights and the sounds of each play. He made you feel like you were right there on the field. In one part Roy is trying to catch a fly ball that seems impossible to catch. John Tunis then expresses the sound of the crowd yelling and the first baseman warning Roy of the wall. He described the sounds of the vendors in the stands yelling about hotdogs, scorecards, and drinks well, it made me feel like I was in the stands. Another part he described well was the clubhouse before and after games he included many details about the sounds and horseplay that happened. Another reason I liked the book was the fact that he included on the field events as well as off the field events. Some of the off the field events were important like one time Roy punches a reporter for calling him ¿washed up and wall shy¿. This was very important because Roy had to pay a fine for his actions. Another important and funny off field event happened when some of the players dressed up as painters and poured paint onto the owner of the Dodgers. He got angry because right after it happened he found out who it was. They then told him it was just a weak solution and he calmed down. The manager got signed for another season and that was an example of an important off the field event. My last reason for liking the book ¿World Series¿ is the excitement. The whole series is exciting. One example of excitement is when the Dodger¿s centerfielder, Swanny, hits a walk off game seven winning homerun. It won the game and the World Series. An exciting part happens when Roy has his first at bat since being hit in the head. He comes up in a key time but strikes out. Another exciting part is when they win their first game since falling behind three to one in the series. Overall this was a great book that I highly recommend. It was exciting, funny in parts, and interesting. It was one of those books you couldn¿t stop reading. B.Hamm
