  1. This was clearly a departure for Grisham, much like Bleachers and Skipping Christmas, insofar as they departed from his usual lawyer related books Actually, he seems to enjoy the departure as these light hearted books tend to be well written and enjoyable In this case, Playing for Pizza is a light hearted romp through Italy using football as an excuse to settle on a topic The story line is predictable as is the ending, so we re left with a not too deep story of an ex NFL quarterback and his PLAN [...]


  2. This story is not about lawyers Instead it is about a football player in Italy, but not really even a sports novel A very good read Don t expect a whodunit, but sit back and enjoy a story of travels in Italy The only complaint is when I finished the book, I wanted to immediately go to Italy and had to wait.


  3. Having lived in Rome for 9 months while a student during which I played on an Italian club baseball team, I re visited some of the wonderful moments re learning the game form the Italian perspective Several of the characters in the book were very much like some of my teammates While they practiced and played with intensity, the comaraderie and food wine were even important.The protagonist s arc of Italianization from his initial awkwardness to nearly complete immersion driven by the friendly, ac [...]


  4. Quick John Grisham read one of three novels he has written that have sports as a setting as far as I know Story of a fallen NFL football player who finds himself playing in a lower level Italian American style football league held interest Liked watching the main character grow as a person and realize sports is secondary to relationships My mother was Sicilian so I enjoyed the Italy travelogue and cultural references Definitely a light read his other two sports related books Calico Joe baseball [...]


  5. Not a mystery Not a legal story It s the fun story of an athlete facing what appears to be the end of his time in the sports world, but finding fun and discovering things he never imagined It s a fun and quick read, but you will remember it Not the excitement of a courtroom But it does the excitement of dinner at a great Italian restaurant.


  6. This is an unusual book from Grisham It revolves totally around football, it s a bit dry for anybody that doesn t follow football and the plot lines rather impotent next to The dissecting of the football plays I really liked the book but I really like football For those who don t enjoy football I don t recommend this book for all others I do recommend


  7. There s not much else in this book While there is a plot, it s not the least bit interesting I suspect Mr Grisham wrote this book to show case his love of football and to have a pay day for researching Italian history I skimmed over all parts football and history and finished the book in less than two hours I wouldn t read it unless you re deep into football or Italy.


  8. John Grisham has done it again No legal mumbo jumbo though I love those too to wade through, just a well written story about a United States football quarterback who had become a joke in his home town When the opportunity to play American Football in Italy is presented, the ageing quarterback it s convinced by others and himself that if wanted another year playing football, this was his chance.Grisham describes each province that Rick is dragged through by the energetic girl, Livvy, who has beco [...]


  9. This was unexpectedly interesting and fascinating Normally I expect a story about the law from this author, but this was about American football, about which I know nothing It was mainly set in Italy, with lots of connections with America It was about turning failing into succeeding and without being in any way patronising It was a bit of a page turner because I really didn t know what to expect next A delight to read and to keep returning to I didn t really want it to end.


  10. I used this product for reading It isn t quite what I expected from John Grisham but I rather enjoyed it nonetheless A very gentle and humorous read helped along by revealing places of interest in and around Parma and descriptions of gastronomic delights The story has a not altogether unpredictable ending but that didn t spoil it If one thing came from reading this it is the wish to visit Parma.
