A golf novel! Ugh! While understandable, that preconception of THE GREEN is wrong. This novel is marvelously entertaining from the outset, and Christopher McDonald's narration fits perfectly. On its face, this is the story of Eddie Caminetti, a golf hustler recruited to the U.S. Ryder Cup team. But it is also a subtle look into human nature from the perspective of Caminetti, who plays every angle, and a few that most of his fellow golfers never contemplate. This book requires a tongue-in-cheek approach, and McDonald pulls it off. The way he portrays Caminetti's smooth confidence adds immeasurably to the story and demonstrates the difference a skilled reading makes. Some books are pure fun, funny, and insightful. This is one.
