Wrigleyworld: A Season In Baseball's Best Neighborhood Wrigleyworld: A Season In Baseball’s Best Neighborhood by Kevin Kaduk
My review
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Look, Kevin Kaduk’s chronicle of his year living in Wrigleyville and going to all the Cubs games he could won’t win any awards. But even though it’s pretty self-indulgent predictable fare (the Cubs didn’t win the World Series, spoiler!), it is still entertaining enough to make it worth the read. The characters inhabiting the neighborhood – Ronnie Woo, the Ballhawks, the scalpers – bring life to this tale of drinking and watching baseball. And he gets a bonus star for saying what needed to be said: Old Style sucks!
I’ve started on The Maine Woods by Henry David Thoreau, but I’m not sure how far I will get before putting it aside for more “summer reading.”
