The Chosen: worth the baseball drudgery?

April 1, 2009

This is my latest audiobook pick.  There was no particular reason for grabbing it, I just recognized the title at the library & took it home with me.

Yesterday, I spent my morning & afternoon commute on disc 1 (of 9).  The entirety of the disc discussed, in length, a baseball game.  Before yesterday, I would’ve said I didn’t care for baseball.  Now, I think I may hate baseball.  One hour of my life — 11% of the book — wasted on describing innings, strikes, balls, outs, swings, infields, short-stops, blah, blah, blah, blah.

It has occurred to me I know nothing about this book.  I think I’ve heard good things.  Am I remembering incorrectly?  What is this about?  Is it worth it?  And will there be more baseball?
