    ePUB Michael Shaara à For Love of the Game Kindle ↠ For LoveeBook ã à love free, game epub, For Love mobile, of the epub, Love of the free, For Love of the Game ePUBThis is a lovely story Written in a Hemingway esue style it covers the last two days in the baseball career of a future Hall of Fame pitcher The characters are well drawn and believable The inner ramblings of pitcher Billy Chapel are particularly well done The book takes us into the heart of baseball where time is an illusion and the past and the future somehow are joinedIt's basically a one day read and yet I suspect it will stay in my mind for a long time The love story is done in a totally understated manner which the plot such as it is reuiresThe only book which comes even close to this story is Bang the Drum Slowly by Mark Harris Like Harris' novel even though the story is ostensibly about baseball it is also about friendship commitment growing up and honoring yourself by doing the best you can no matter the circumstances I saw the movie based on the book years ago It starred Kevin Costner and was an admirable attempt t
