    "The Natural is arguably the best baseball novel of all time and was inspired by film star Robert Redford and is a fantastic baseball player."

    "Many will say that the movie has outdone the book, pointing to character flaws and small plot holes, but The Natural tells a compelling story of hard work and talent. I read this book years ago to my nephew during his little league days (I left out some of the more adult portions) and, in my opinion, this book is a must have for any baseball fan, especially those who have seen and enjoyed the movie. "

    "The Natural follows a baseball player who was born with a natural talent for the game, and documents his struggles and many tragedies as he makes his way to the top. The book does not follow the typical 'man overcomes problem and everyone loves him' formula, but instead thrusts you into a world full of chaos, despair, and devoid of mercy. Ultimately it forces you to think, and I find that's always a good quality of books such as these. I couldn't recommend it more!"

    "If you like Robert Redford, then you're in luck because this book will give you some good backstory and understanding about the movie of the same name that he starred in. It's also an okay read if you are just a fan of baseball, in general."

    "This looks like a good suspenseful read. I am not much on sports based books, but this looks like a great novel. I like that I can add it to my kindle page and access it anywhere. Its not expensive either, so I am intrigued by that. Adding this to my list as well."
