The Boys in the Boat

81ZGLCqdG7LI have had The Boys in the Boat on my list (and my nightstand) since I purchased it over the summer. It’s rare that I purchase books and so I usually read them right away. Too many other books from the library kept coming and I put this one aside, knowing I would get to it, but not feeling particularly pressed to, even though I heard over and over how wonderful it was. Once I started, though, even though I knew the outcome, I could not put the book down. The writing was so interesting, fluid, and compelling. Crew is not an interest of mine, but like Seabiscuit (horses not being an interest of mine either), there was a pull to the prose that drew me in and had me on the edge of my seat. I cannot say enough good things about this book and I urge you to run out and grab it immediately!
