Not quite sure what I think of this book. Love the movie, but not overly addicted to sports stories. There are times when this is told like a great story, but there are other times when it seems put together like many magazine articles---some of which maybe aren't exactly related. The chapters that jumped around in time and subject were somewhat off-putting to me. Overall - ok, not as good as the movie. ( )

Michael Oher is homeless due to his mother's drug use. The Touhy family takes him in and eventually adopts him. He is behind in his academic skills and the family provides tutors. He goes on to college and becomes a member of the NFL. ( )

This book is truly one of the best books i have ever read. Watching the movie first, i had the impression the characters in the book would be the same. Shocked that it was not, Michael Lewis gave me a better understanding of who the characters really were. The main charcter Michael, learns his way through life with a fearless attitude. Although he grew up on a bad note, being intrigued by drugs and having the absense of a true family, his independant self does not let that stop who he really is. Taken in by a white family who is exact opposite as Michael, the readers are able to see the value in what family connections really mean. Although he was not excel in school, he found his passion through football. Michael Lewis teaches many readers an important lesson. No matter what you are going through, push through it and find yourself, just like Michael did with football. Although this book has many valuable lessons, the only thing i was dissapointed in is how Michael Lewis focuses more attention on the game of football, rather than the story of Michael and his family. I would reccomend to anyone who is interested in sports as well. ( )

Interesting study of Michael Orr as he moves from a destitute child in Memphis to a premiere college football athlete. Much different than the movie by the same name. ( )

There were two parts to this story. The first part was about the evolution of the offensive lineman in football. The other part of the story was about Michael Oher and his path toward the NFL. Both storylines were very interesting, but I didn't like how Lewis skipped back and forth in time between both stories. He would switch narratives abruptly and it was confusing at times because I was listening to the audiobook. But I was very interested in finishing the book. I was a graduate student at LSU when Nick Saban attempted to recruit Michael Oher and I remember the stories surrounding the recruitment and the NCAA. Coach O (who ended up with Oher at Ole Miss) is now our head football coach. The personal connections made the story more interesting. The best part of the whole book however was listening to the narrator attempt Coach O's speech and accent and then have to translate it. Priceless. ( )
