Fantastic read. It's intelligent, unpredictable, and altogether hard to put down. I've been following the author since he started a popular sports blog and while his blogging skills are second-to-none it's great to see him take his writing to a new level with this very enjoyable novel. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
A hundred years ago, Thomas R. Marshall was governor of Indiana. He went on to become vice-president under Woodrow Wilson. In Marshall's autobiography, he wrote that Indiana had a way of producing first-rate, second-rate men. In 1997, Indiana proved it could do even worse when it abandoned its one-class high school, statewide basketball tournament. The tournament had been the model for today's NCAA March Madness. But the Indiana authorities convinced themselves it was better to have four diluted mini-champs than one actual best-in-the-state winner. Indiana turned out to be the Big Loser.

That's the back-story for the finely written INVINCIBLE, INDIANA. The actual tale involved a young, first-year coach fresh from the Butler University staff. He arrives in Invincible and deals with the eccentricities and biases of a small, fading community devoted to its high school team. Invincible loves basketball, a condition once common in towns throughout the state. Invincible, however, has something else. It is deeply protective of their team's legendary record: 49 consecutive .500 seasons.

In a less able writer, this book could have been a sappy, preditable stereotype. Fortunately, Dunlevy took a street-real approach. With the exception of a couple of high-minded speech blurts, the dialogue reflects the way people talk under stress. Nothing shocking. The language is just unvarnished, what you hear rather than what your aunt pretends she wishes to hear. When he puts characters in rugged situations, they sometimes come out with their plumes drooping. The writing tugs the reader through the pages, not with building tension, but with growing curiosity about whether the author will be able to look you in the face on the last page. Find out. Read this excellent book.

I enjoyed the thrill of the team's evolution from apathy to greatness. The human relationships that developed through out the story and the life lessons that the coach and the team learned through the season made me want to read it again and underscore those passages so I can use in my daily life.
