I enjoyed reading this book and plan to get it for my family members for the holidays.  The story was creative and kept me guessing.  I don't know anything about cricket but I enjoyed the sports theme.  The story of the curse was really creative and the characters were entertaining too.

If you love to read, buy the novel, and clear your calendar and don’t stop reading until you’re done!  The novel’s a real page turner, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Despite not knowing the difference between a wicket and a wildebeest, my lack of knowledge about cricket didn’t slow me down – in fact, the book made me curious to know more.  At its core, the novel is about the human condition – and the human spirit – in all of its forms, set against the backdrop of cricket.  Well-developed and interesting characters, the history of apartheid and South Africa, and a suspenseful plot were compelling enough to pull me through to the end, and leave me wanting more from this author.

The Curse or The Cup is a fast-paced, heartwarming novel about family, race, revenge, and forgiveness —with the sport of cricket as a backdrop. Being an American who knew nothing about cricket before reading this book, I was surprised that my unfamiliarity with the sport never hindered my reading experience. I found it easy to relate to the flawed but beautiful characters—the family that’s been torn apart by decades of racial prejudice, the young man who must make a choice between hate and hope, and the friends who help him along his journey to achieve his dreams. I would definitely recommend this book.
