I picked up this book because I always pick up John Grisham's new books. Needless to say, he surprised me with this story because I kinda went in expected a patch eyed evil mysterious murdered when I heard Calico Joe. The surprise was very very pleasant.
The book was easy to follow despite all the baseball stats showing incredible performances by Cubs and Mets teams.
You do not end up feeling pity for Joe or Warren. Neither of them deserve any for different reasons.
