Haven't read much for novel's recently been mostly on the non-fiction train. The last novel I read was probably "The Art of Fielding" by Chad Harbach. It's a baseball book but only in the sense that it is the plot device the author has used to deliver his fantastic story about the struggles of youth around the college age. Being I just graduated from university a year and a half ago and am still bumbling about aimlessly I found this novel very easy to identify with.
I also gave it to my brother who is not a baseball fan in the slightest and he really enjoyed it as well so like I said, it's a baseball book but it's definitely for everyone.
