Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I'd highly recommend this audiobook -- it's a gritty true story of a phenom bowler in New Jersey who got involved in the mob, served time in federal prison, wound up a homeless crack addict on the streets of Manhattan for seven years, then met an angel who changed his life. In the end, he goes back to Vegas to bowl in the biggest-money bowling tournament in the country. What happens there is profoundly inspiring.
What other book might you compare Redemption Alley to and why?
I think of this book as a movie -- a "Rocky" of bowling, or "The Sopranos" meets "Hoosiers."
Which scene was your favorite?
The match between "Ruby Red" and Bob Perry, when he gets beat up by John Gotti (who thinks he's throwing the game).
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
I loved this book. Although it's emotionally wrenching, it winds up being a huge inspirational lift.
