    Darryl Brock s If I Never Get Back is not and also does not in any way claim to be either a literary classic or a masterpiece But reading does not always have to be a chore or an academic undertaking, and for the sheer pleasure of entertainment, for an appreciated escape from reality into the pages of a novel, not only does If I Never Get Back always and continuously grab the...

    This is probably 4.5 stars due to the fact that the time travel aspects are pretty weak and the ending could be stronger, but I couldn t bring myself to knock a whole star off because, as a writer, the research Brock put into this novel absolutely floored me If you love baseball and the 1800s and nostalgia, that will get you in the door, and you could simply stay there and enjoy this book, but if you want to delve a little farther, maybe run a few Google searches on the topics the main characte This is probably 4.5 stars due to the fact that the time travel aspects are pretty weak and the ending could be stronger, but I couldn t bring myself to knock a whole star off because, as a writer, the research Brock put into this novel absolutely floored me If you love baseball and the 1800s and nostalgia, that will get you in the door, and you could simply stay there and enjoy this book, but if you want to delve a little farther, maybe run a few Google searches on the topics the main character discusses, you will find an intricately woven t...

    The ol sudden trip back in time blends with baseball in this very entertaining tale by Darryl Brock, which spawned a sequel Throwing the modern man back into an earlier age to see what happens hardly is new, from Mark Twain s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur s Court onward.The Twain reference is appropriate, because the main character in If I Never Get Back, Sam Fowler, does in fact meet a young Twain on a twain er, train after he s inexplicably transported from the late 1980s to 18 The ol sudden trip back in time...

    Wonderful book by Darryl Brock It is a combination of Time Travel and Baseball as our narrator takes a spill in present day and wakes up in 1869 Cincinnati where he becomes associated with the first professional baseball team the Cincinnati Red Stockings While many baseball folks seem to bow down in homage to Kinsella for his time travel works of Shoeless Joe and The Iowa Baseball Confederacy this is a far superior book It is filled with rich historical people, places and things and for Wonderful book by Darryl Brock It is a combination of Time Travel and Baseball as our narrator takes a spill in present day and wakes up in 1869 Cincinnati where he becomes associated with the first professional baseball team the Cincinnati Red Stockings While many baseball folks seem to bow down in homage to Kinsella for his time travel works of Shoeless Joe and The Iowa Baseball Confederacy this is a far superior book It is filled with rich historical people, places and things and for the life of me I cannot figure out why this novel has never beed adapted into a movie Where Kinsella s books are fantasy, this book really shows us what it was truly like to live in 1869, and the adulation that America s first professional team received We have gamblers and we see lots of pollution We have Mark Twain, along with members of the Irish Fenian Society who want to invade Canada, which are dead on accurate po...
