The Art Of Fielding

The Art of Fielding: A Novel - Chad Harbach

I wanted to like this one, I really, really, did!  But it just didn't work out.  It started out okay and interesting.  I mean, all the references to Moby Dick?  I LOVE Moby Dick! 

 

And baseball?  I LOVE baseball.  How could I not like this book?

 

I just couldn't get into the characters.  They seemed so disconnected.

 

And the President of the gay University President stalking the baseball player/student? 

 

Creepy.

 

I had to stop.

 

Sorry.
