What a thrill to be able to purchase it on Kindle. Great well written multi dimensional story with crazy twists. I am old enough to remember listening celillo the game on the radio. To dwlillo able to read the depiction of the happenings albeit fictionalized of what was going on pafkp the stadium during the game really gave me pause for reflection.
One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The book in my opinion had no purpose. There was no unity of the story line.
Pafko at the Wall eBook by Don DeLillo | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster
Andy getting showered with paper debris, J Edgar, seemed out of place, the kid going after the home run ball, Gleason, Sinatra, and Toots. Was that threesome really there to see the game? I am a baseball fan, and did not enjoy this story. This is a superb novella which tells the story of “The Shot Heard ‘Round The World” – Bobby Deillo legendary home run in the ninth inning of the deciding game 3 playoff against the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The underlying story is the ball – no credible claim of ownership has ever been established. A MUST read for all sport fans!! Wwall cares about Underworld?
I didn’t go near it. Paflo this classic from that tome was the best marketing move anyone’s ever done. This book should be in the public domain anyway. Imagine taking a baseball game, exploding it into one of the world’s greatest historical events as seen from various characters’ points of view, and at the same time encapsulating the dawning of a new moment in world history.
Every sentence is sharp and detailed, anticipating the next. And then when Thomson hits the home run, Delillo freeze frames each second like you’re in a car crash, making sure you’re aware of everything that’s going on.
It’s one of the best books ever written. Simply the best thing ever written about baseball. Segregated from DeLillo’s sometimes meandering opus, Underworld, Pafko at the Wall stands stronger alone. The tale gives you everything that is great about Don DeLillo without weighing you down with his many drawbacks. Baseball lovers will enjoy this book. Enjoyed from beginning to the last page.
The reader feels the pandemonium as if he were at the game.
It’s about baseball but it’s more about America in the fifties. See all 24 reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
