Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Baseball is in the Schneider family blood. Each member of this family, from family founder Felix Schneider in the 1800s to Snider Flint in the present day, has a strong tie to the game and to Brooklyn. Through the years this family has dodged bullets on a battlefield, pitched perfect games, and dealt with the devastating loss of family and the Brooklyn Dodgers. Nine innings--nine generations. One game--one family. Through it all, one thing remains true: the bonds of family are as strong as a love of the game.

   Great Read
I read this at my son's insistence. This book weaves the history of the country through different eyes, most notably through baseball. This is not a baseball book, but it is there for the taking. This was one of the funniest books I have ever read in a long time. A baseball fan would love how the game is tied by the lives of all characters with enough non-sports life in the story to keep the non-fan engaged. The 2nd Pitcher through the 4th Season is by far my favorite sections, but overall, this is a great summer read for anyone aged 10-95. While not a scholar, the language used was accurate during the period, and the story never lost its flow. Need something light that will make you lower, take a swing with this one.
   A Wonderful Read!
I have to admit that one of the only things I know about baseball is that there is no better hot dog on the Earth than one eaten in the sunny bleachers of Wrigley Field. But even with my limited knowledge of sports, I can appreciate the nine stories of The Brooklyn Nine. This novel has it all - humorous stories, like the local girl who takes the feisty Mafioso. Heart-wrenching moments like the boy who realizes his hero is not what he thought he was. And a sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat story following a pitcher as he tries to throw a perfect game.
   A Baseball Adventure Story
I thought the book Brooklyn Nine '' by Alan Gratz was awesome! I recommend this book to people who love historical adventure stories or people who like baseball. I gave the book a five - star review because I REALLY enjoyed it! It was full of action and packed with fun!
   Great Book! Finished it so quickly!
This book was extraordinarily well mixed with sports and history. The family generations were a little difficult to keep up with, but this book was spectacular otherwise. I know nothing about baseball, but Mr Gratz made the book so good and descriptive that I couldn 't put it down. But in all, this book was great and I would recommend this book for everyone.
   There's a lot in this book
This book is young, especially for a rich novel. It is grammatically well-written. I like the style of the author. The 9 chapters progress in chronological order, are true to baseball and baseball's evolution and follow a family through time. There is also an heirloom that connects the generations. What I did not expect was the introduction of controversial current topics in every chapter of child labor, immigration, alcohol and drug abuse, betrayal, women's rights, prejudice,... It would be a 7th book for, say, superb graders to read and discuss in class.
   This is a great book! I read it with my 8th graders ...
I read it with my 5th graders and then borrowed my 8th grade son from one of the other teachers, and read it in three days. He then asked for his own copy of it for Chirstmas and has already read it twice.
