Bear Town

512aJxv1kQL._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_I was so excited to read Fredrick Bachman’s newest, Beartown. I had trouble getting into it and struggled to keep up my interest through the first third. The jumping between characters were too confusing and in-depth descriptions about the underpinnings of hockey team structure just were not interesting to me. It then picked up a bit, but around the 50% mark, I felt slogged down again. While the story twist was compelling and I felt more engaged with the characters, the pace was too slow to keep me enjoying the book. However, the last quarter moved along at a good clip and, in the end, I enjoyed the resolutions to each story. On the whole, though, I would say this was not a favorite of mine.
