    " I liked many of his other books better. This one seemed weak to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pegg | 1/17/2013

    " This is a wonderful story about courage and never giving up. Loved it! Some of the "football talk" was over my head (yeah, I know, but I'm not a fan) but that didn't interfere with the story at all. Highly recommended for an inspirational, feel good, Hallmark moment type of story. "

    " I do like the way Jenkins tells a story. I'm not even much of a football fan, but he made me take interest in the characters, and even enjoy the football games in the story! "

    " Kind of choppy, but a good read. I was told it would be better to actually watch the movie before reading the book. Too late, I read the book first, now to the movie! "

    " don't really like to read about sports, such as football, but this story is very good. I would read it again.. "

    " I really liked this book! It got a little boring at some points but the ending was really good and much different than what you would expect. The movie was good too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 7/9/2009

    " In the tradition of Christian fiction, this book is as light and predictable as an episode of Little House on the Prairie and literarily (is that a word?) nutrient-free as an episode of Frasier.

    It's also quite likable. "

    " I read this book in maybe two days at the most. The story was compelling and easy to follow. I recommended it to a friend who finished to right away and then told her mother about it. A good read. "
