Calico Joe


Calico JoeCalico Joe by John Grisham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My wife knows how much I enjoy reading Grisham so when she saw this book on sale at Target she bought it. It is a very easy read but an excellent read. Calico Joe is a rookie playing for the Chicago Cubs. He is setting all kinds of records and is on pace to be the all time rookie ever until his career is cut short when a pitcher throws and hits him in the head. The son of the pitcher years later when his father is dying sets off to meet Joe and try to sit up a meeting between the two. Grisham weaves both fact and fiction into the story. Many former Cubs players are mentioned in the book. It reads like a true story. It is so close to reading like a true story it makes one want to do research to find more information about the fictional Calico Joe. If you enjoy a good fiction story or enjoy baseball you will love this book.
