93.  My Most Excellent Year:  A Novel of Love, Mary Poppins, and Fenway Park--Steve Kluger

What did you think?  One person I recommended this to stopped reading it 50 pages from the end because he decided he didn't like any of the characters.  I couldn't even believe it.  I really liked this one a lot.

How do you stop reading a book with 50 pages to go?  That's like not watching the last 10 minutes of a 3 hr movie!  I thought it was a great book.  Entertaining characters, loved Augie the most.  I've recommended it to several people.
