4.0 out of 5 stars I guess he got back, November 1, 2002
This review is from: Two in the Field (Mass Market Paperback)
This is good stuff, just not as good as "If I Never Get Back," which remains one of my favorite recent novels.
I guess my one real concern about the book is that it's more of a continuation than a sequel. I doubt that it would stand well on its own, as there are characters and events that would just seem to come out of nowhere if you don't have the background of the preceeding novel.
Just a few, brief comments:
1. It's a worthy follow-on to the original novel, but you should definitely have read If I Never Get Back first. (Or heck, just reread it; it stands up really well!)
2. There is definitely less baseball, and less focus on baseball, although it does recur throughout.
3. The ending seems a bit hurried, and less carefully crafted than the rest of the novel. I still haven't decided whether this is just because I didn't want it to end, or whether I'm not pleased with the ending.
It's well-written, well-researched, and well worth the time to read it.

I appreciate all your recommendations. I went through all of yours based on this one and as a result ordered up the other book you mentioned Shadow Diver. Thanks!
