The Blind Side by Micheal Lewis
THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016
People note outcomes, and reason backwards from them.
I saw the movie a few years back and enjoyed it, even though I don’t like football. It was uplifting. I saw the book in the ‘grab and go’ selection and decided to give it a whirl.
This is an autobiographical account of Micheal Oher, football player for the Baltimore Ravens. He started out as nothing but a big black kid born on the wrong sode of the street and how fate interviened and made him into one of the most sought after rookies in High school.
He ended up getting found by the Tuhoy’s, and given the life that anyone deserves. And in the process begins to learn and adapt and overcome the obstacles placed before him.
Since I don’t much like football, the historical bits kind of rolled right on through and I tended to skip over them.
Overall, a good read and a happy ending. 🙂
