i loved this book when i was twenty and it was still pretty good at seventy, if i bit too clever for its own good. but if you get into it (as i did when i was younger), it is quite a trip and probably unlike anything you've ever read about baseball before. since i was a high school english teacher for 40 yrs, i want to qualify my rating. at twenty, i would have rating this a five-star novel. it was stunning at the time and wrapped me up in its fantasy world. CATCH-22 and the vonnegut books also seemed a lot funnier and more profound at twenty. i can barely read those two authors now. but that's now. i think this book and the other authors i mentioned would still seem like fun if you are young and you should try them out. if you're older or think you're mature, i'd try CLOUD ATLAS for cleverness and inventiveness instead. if you have trouble with that book (i did), watch teh movvie and try reading it again. it's a wonderful book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Haunting, Mysterious, and Magical 27 février 2013

This is one of those books written in such a way that you are forced to go back and reread a sentence or paragraph to fully understand what you have read. Having said that, I wish I could say I understood fully this story of a man (or is he God) who has created a world of baseball players in a game he also created. The characters become alive and weave in and out of the life of J Henry Waugh, Prop, of the UBA, at times more alive than he - certainly often more interesting than he. It is humorous and bawdy at times, frightening and haunting. There is a feeling of doom in the life of the middle-aged Prop. of the UBA as well as in the "players" of his eight team imaginery league. One player will die - killed by pitch that strikes his head. He is mourned, celebrated, eulogized, and beatified. And J Henry Waugh? He is a doomed lost soul trapped in his own world of imagination where the real becomes fantasy and fantasy becomes reality. I heard once that all good novels about baseball are about something much more than the game. That certainly is true of Robert Coover's excellent (albeit confusing) book. It is like a banquet - having been eaten it must then be digested. Read it and attempt to digest the novel's many layers of fiction and fictionalized fiction.

Strange, fascinating, story within a story but not in the way most folks think.
At an obvious level, Henry Waugh is an isolated man who spends his time playing a complex, convoluted board game of baseball, with an entire league that he's taken through 50 some seasons. At a deeper level, the teams, players and managers are REAL, but their actions and motivations are driven by Waugh's ruminations. Absolutely fascinating.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 When reality is struck out by imagination... or delusion 11 avril 2015
Par Luc Archambault - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A novel based on a fictional game of baseball played with dices... the main character steps up to the plate, to the dismay of his "real" life friends and co-workers... his game becomes his only reality... the only negative thing about this magnificent novel is the ending, not fully developed. Near perfection, which still merits five stars for the total immersion into a fantasy world...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A lot going on here 18 juin 2013

This is brilliantly written especially considering how long ago it was published, way before fantasy baseball/football became so popular, even to the point of obsession with some people. It is a fascinating read, it may lose you at times, which certainly fits with the theme. I didn't love it, but was very glad I read it and I think in hindsight, seeing what Coover was doing here, a re-read would be very satisfying.
