Farewell To Cricket Reviews
My copy of this book was bought used. It has a Geelong Library stamp in it. It seems decades old. I have no idea how much I've read of it, but nothing less than 5 stars for the Babe Ruth of cricket, as far as I'm concerned.I can't say how much "personal" info is in it, i.e., whether it qualifies as a memoir or not. Much of it is reports of the various Test Series that Bradman played in over the years, his memorable scores, match-by-match summaries, that sort of thing.The only reason I went downstairs and took a look at it was that I just listened to a Paul Kelly song called "Bradman". I'd never heard it before, and was surprised to hear a pop/rock song about Don Bradman. (view spoiler)[ All right, let's set the record straight. I'd never heard of Paul Kelly until about an hour ago, from my GR friend Louisa from Melbourne). Now I've downloaded his Greatest Hits album and am listening, very much pleased. (hide spoiler)]
Disappointing and boring book by cricket's greatest ever batsman,full of too many match details and statistics.I read this years ago,just because it was written by Don Bradman,but the only thing I remember is how dull and dry it was.
No Cricket lovers book collection is complete with out a book on or written by the greatest batsman of them all, Sir Donald Bradman. Having said that, I honestly found this book to be written in a style that was rather boring to the reader. Still a must for Cricket lovers though.
It read as though it was written by a stockbroker. Interesting to read Bradman's view on many subjects that had irked him but dreadful writing style. Just as well he could bat.
