CR: the Brothers K
i didn't expect it to be that long, and it is pretty long. yet i've managed to stay with it so far, being about halfway through at the moment.
unfortunately, i don't understand some parts of it, those that refer to baseball (and that's a whole lot).
i'm from a non-baseball nation. i've never played it, never seen it bein played. (also cos i don't have cable)
so it's kinda hard to comprehend the obsession that the family has with it.
yet Duncan's writing style, and his compelling characters keeps me going. i love the brothers, how different they all are and yet similar.
i just hope that i can finish it before it's due back at the library! (which is unfortunately pretty soon)
