What a mess. I got the audiobook of this book because the principal story about a fictional female owner/manager of the Dallas Cowboys who gets kicked out and starts a competing league with the Paterson Pork franchise sounded really good. And that plot line was. It was enjoyable. But the book has a dozen different ones going on and as magnificent as the full-cast audiobook performance is, it was excruciating listening to it for week after week as I waited for the eventual World Bowl between the Cowboys and the Pork.
This is one of those books that you need to read so you can accelerate through the plot lines you're less interested in. It's great writing – don't get me wrong – but listening to it in real time was hard.
