Book: On My Chest, by Adoni Patrikios
Where I got it: Free Kindle download
Length: 208 pages
Briefly: an English football team struggling at the bottom of the League and in danger of relegation, hires a woman as new team manager. This is the story of how it works out for her, and for the team.
Comments: This is a great story idea – but gah! The book turns out to be so PATRONISING – ultimately, women are baby machines, and football is for guys, right? It’s written from the perspective of a sports journalist, and I suspect that the author may actually be one, because he writes descriptions of games that are very credible. But as for the rest of it… a waste of reading time. (Don’t start me on the grammar…)
