THE LAST HERO The Life of Mickey Mantle

by | Read by Jonathan Marosz

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

This book is written and read by evident baseball fans, and their combined enthusiasm for the great American pastime creates a literary interlude as compelling as a tied game in the World Series. All of baseball's titans find their way into the book, and Jonathan Marosz's performance convinces us that we are really hearing everything we hoped for about the game and the players we love so much. Marosz has a quick and pleasant style of reading that frequently prolongs a word to create emphasis. This audiobook is a biographical roller coaster, as its subject climbs to athletic stardom, then succumbs to alcoholism. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
