    In Jon Sindell’s novel “The Mighty Roman” baseball is much than just a sport It’s a stage that spotlights the challenges between one generation and the next It exposes who we are as individuals as well as who we are as a society Through baseball we can see the reflection of human behavior good and bad Sindell writes a compelling and humorous story about a young minor league baseball player trying to turn his boyhood dream of making it to the major leagues into a reality He constantly challenges his cranky “old school” coach who he has dubbed “The Mighty Roman” It’s a classic tale with modern themes dealing with cross cultural communication generational differences and personal identity Many of the characters in book seem oddly familiar to my own experience of playing Little League Babe Ruth and High School baseball What I loved about this book was the uick pace and colorful usage of humor As a songwriter I am always looking for authors that inspire me with their creative usage of words Sindell’s writing reminds me a little bit of Thomas Pinchon who is one of my favorite writers I highly recommend this read whether you are a fan of baseball or not In my case it bridged the gap between the off season and spring training

    I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads This is a fun fast funny read with some great laugh out loud sections I'm not a huge baseball fan but I really enjoyed the baseball action I enjoyed this book so much than The Art of Fielding and on par with Calico Joe Anyway if you like baseball stories you're gonna love this one

    Jon Sindell's The Mighty Roman is a great baseball yarn It tells the story of a young man's pursuit of the all American dream of putting your foot on the lowest rung of the professional baseball ladder and trying to find a way to ascend that magical stairway to The Show And it lovingly tells the bitter sweet story of what it feels like to slowly wake up from that dream as the reality of the odds stacked against you becomes clear There is plenty of baseball action packed into this lyrical ode to our national pastime and any lover of the game will be enthralled with the insider's view of both the individual competition and the intricate machinations of minor league baseballBut like many great works of fiction this tale works on than one level It also illustrates the cultural divide that has polarized our country as our hero takes us on a humorous and personal journey of discovery What our hero discovers is his relationship to his coach The Mighty Roman who is an intriguing mixture of Captain Ahab and Archie Bunker who is not so much a villain as he is a metaphor The conflict between this hard nosed manager and his multi cultural ball club personalizes the story of the ethnic and generational conflicts going on beneath the surface of our every day lives as 21st century Americans It's a really enjoyable read whichever level you care to focus on

    I really enjoyed reading this book The language of the book was the best part for me it was often like poetry I have to admit that I did not like the main character Roman he is evil and at times made me want to throw the book at something However the other characters are so likable and the prose was so good to read that I kept going past the evil deeds of this character I am a lover of baseball so that part of the book was great for me The depictions of how the lowest rung of pro baseball works reminded me of my childhood going to Tucson Toros games in the 1970s when they were a farm team for the Cleveland Indians There was an innocence about baseball at that level that is gone by the time they get to the majors This faith that one day each player will get to the big show is clearly demonstrated in the book along with the reality that most of these players will not ever get to the major league team As I usually read historical romance and classic English literature this was a stretch outside of my comfort zone but I really liked it and am glad I read it I hope to read from this author as I really liked the way he used the language

    I won this book through the first reads giveaways This book was like 35 stars for me It's a great baseball yarn that includes a little love fatherson relationships and hot button political issues including gay rights and illegal immigration I really liked all the stuff that wasn't really about baseball I loved the narrator Matt Marola and his roommate Rex Hirsch I liked the relationships among the players I thought Sindell did a good job of dealing with political issues But I have to admit I don't know a lot about baseball and I got a little glassy eyed when it got heavy on the baseball talk That was the only thing that kept it from being a 4 star rating

    A very fun read Great character development and really just an enjoyable page turner Very engaging and believable characters and a glimpse into the best and the worst that make up sports It was as if Holden Caulfield was speaking through the narrarator and he himself played minor league baseball I'd recommend this book to anyone that enjoys sports even if baseball isn't your favorite sport it makes you want to go to the ballpark and watch the guys who are there for the love of the game

    This book is so much than baseball It is the collection of people dealing with cultural issues of sexual preference and illegal immigration It definitely appeals to those coming of age At times the book is poetic and beautiful and frustrating all at the same time in a good way ; I hope this book gets the coverage it deserves I am thankful I won the goodreads giveaway and got to read and review this book

  8. Tracy Reilly Tracy Reilly says:

    This book was a pleasure to read and you don't need to be a baseball expert to enjoy the interplay between characters It has the added attraction of presenting the good vibes in a realistic non saccharine form that are created from being on a team the bonds that are created Jon also has a great sense of humor adding to the enjoyment highly recommended

    I won't review my own book but I will say that if you're looking for a fast funny thought provoking novel about baseball and the modern American man and who isn't? you've come to the right place
