The Feathery (Book) - 2/1/2009 11:19:44 AM|
Bill Flynn's "The Feathery" is a very fast read. Not only is it well crafted, but it is written wonderfully. Many people read books to "escape," and this book helps the reader to do just that - whether it be to 18th Century Scotland, modern day California, modern day England and Scotland and New York.
I am by no means considered an expert in the world of golf, let alone the history of golf balls, yet I was absolutely able to dive into this story to the point where life would interrupt my reading. This book's focus is not just golf - it is a true "whodunit" coupled with a "whatshouldIdo" type of story, with an interesting twist - with the world of golf as the landscape.
One may think by the book's cover that "The Feathery" is just about a type of golf ball, crafted by hand in the 1800s. It is far beyond that. "The Feathery" incorporates greed, love, loss, survival, and it's relation to the world of gambling, antique collecting and pursuing one's dreams. Right from the start, the reader begins to "root" for the characters.
I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to Mr. Flynn's next novel.

Anybody who can use the term feathery (I have one in a glassed in container in my office) Jameson's Irish whiskey, The British Open, and a good old fashion Scottish murder mystery, all in such close proximity, must be read. Then when you get a chance check out the first couple of chapters of my Raw Talent. The greatest game ihn the world!

Best to you on your book signing on the 19th...please share your thoughts, comings and goings. As for me, I am just chilling after 3 years in Afghanistan.

I read the book and loved it. It's mystery and intrigue with a splash of romance, recommended to anyone who likes the genre.
Hope there will be another one coming from you Bill, soon.
