Playing for Pizza by John Grisham


This was a really short read and a complete non-thriller or we can say non-Grisham kind of book. The plot revolves around an NFL player Rick Dockery who has a disastrous career and made history by making his team loose a match that they had already won. To escape all the death threats and change of scene he moves to Italy to be a part of Italian version of NFL and play for a team named Panthers until a better offer comes along.

This story is like any sports movie you would have seen but a well written one. There is a happy ending to this book for sure......and then there is a lot of gyan on Italian food, cities and wine.

One thing is for sure, this book will make an amazing movie......
