I found this book to be engrossing and fascinating. I wouldn't consider myself a baseball fan, but I couldn't put the book down. Beginning with morden baseball's creation as witnessed by a recent German immigrant, the story of baseball is intertwined with the story of the Schneider family. The accounts are well-told and cover captivating aspects of American history as well. I found it a little challenging for my 8th graders to read independently, however, I plan to teach it as a class novel in the near future.

I first bought this book as a Birthday gift for my niece (a Boston Red Sox fan!) and as always wanted to read it first to make sure it was something I thought she would enjoy. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. It's very well written, it has all the elements you want in a story. It made me smile, it brought back memories, it tugged at my heart and brought tears of joy and sadness in equal measure. It is truly a wonderful story that should be shared with families. It will make a good 'read aloud' story book for parents and a great book for young readers who may not always enjoy the task of reading. I would recommend this book ( and I have ) to teachers and friends. Thank you Alan Gratz for writing a great story!

I have liked the book. I don't like how they switch characters as much as they do though. What i do like is how they played baseball back then it was different from how we play baseball. An example is back in inning one they said "so they bloody devil" which was telling them to hit him with them ball. I know that meant hit him because the next sentence was "the ball was zooming by his ear". That is why i like the book Brooklyn Nine

If you want to learn about a little of baseball's history from the 1800's, to about right now this is the perfect book for you. It includes info on what the Brooklyn Dodgers were named before that. There are nine good interesting stories in this book. So come on baseball fans hurry on in to Barnes and Noble to get your copy of the Brooklyn nine!
