THE BLIND SIDE Evolution of a Game

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

Contemporary Culture • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

With MONEYBALL, Michael Lewis established himself as a premier chronicler of the role of money in professional sports. In THE BLIND SIDE, Lewis solidifies his position, presenting a fascinating glimpse into the evolution of left tackles as key players in professional football. The book focuses significantly on Michael Oher, a ghetto kid without education or family, who enrolls at a predominantly white Christian school. Stephen Hoye’s narration is ideal. Hoye is presented with a diverse cast of characters, and he provides each with a distinct style—from the Tuohys, who take in, educate, and socialize Oher, to the “NCAA Lady,” who tries to find evil behind every good deed. Hoye varies his delivery and tone superbly, presenting an ideal parallel to the emotions his listeners surely will share. D.J.S.
