    Read Un gioco da grandi reader ↠ Paperback Ý Benjamin Markovits Un gioco da grandiI didn't grab this one with any set expectations I was perusing a current shelf at the library and the idea of reading the account of a semi pro basketball player playing in Germany and his growing up sounded intriguing There were parts of interest in this one for me but the writing style and the lack of enthusiasm expressed by the author in his own life accounts really make most parts uite labor intensive for the reader The trials and challenges of attempting to play a sport for a living with all of the barriers of doing it in a foreign country take a backseat in the narrative to the lust and intrigue found in a young woman living in the same flat who has a young daughter whose father happens to be one of his teammates This just wasn't a great read to me and in reading it unsure of the big idea or story the author was truly trying to get across with his account

    Read Un gioco da grandi reader ↠ Paperback Ý Benjamin Markovits Un gioco da grandiThis story begins promisingly in the early 90s with Markovitts a recent American college graduate who hasn't played organized basketball since high school who he gets the idea to send a tryout tape to some European club teams Unexpectedly he makes it and ends up playing for a small market suad in Germany and falling for the ex wife of the only other American on the team an aging star hoping for his last shot along the way Yet this book never went where I hoped it would Of course it's a memoir not a novel and you can't change real life but I couldn't help being struck by the lack of humor throughout as if Markovits now in his 40s can't look back upon this part of his life with anything but a great big tired sigh The tone is heavy and dour You might think that a p

    Read Un gioco da grandi reader ↠ Paperback Ý Benjamin Markovits Un gioco da grandiBella scoperta Markovits poi recensito anche sul magazine settimanale delle Gazzetta dello Sport Bel libro di sport con il basket ben disegnato e coinvolgente anche nelle azioni di gioco non facile da farsi Ottima la traduzione dei termini tecnici Ci sta anche la traballante love story per 300 pagine che ualcosa sanno trasmettere
