I have been on hold for this book for about a month and a half and I would like to know if this book is worth it.
This is a clear example of how a movie version of a book doesn’t always follow the book. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved the movie and cried right along with the rest of the movie-goer. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Sandra Bullock to win an Oscar for her role as Leigh Ann Touhey.
Part of the book does chronicle the life of Michael Oher and his rise to the elite ranks of football. Notice that I said part of the book . The book also discusses the strategies surrounding past and current offense and defense plays and players. The author explains (in simple terms, so if you aren’t that familiar with football you will still understand) how the position to protect the quarterback’s blind side has revolutionize how many teams play the sport.
I highly recommend this book. A must read for those of us already on the countdown to football season. GO RAVENS!
