Everyone thinks that their workplace is especially crazy -- their boss is the biggest creep, their co-workers are the most incompetent, their Chad from Accounting is the Chaddest, and the most Accounting -- but they're wrong. Those aren't especially crazy places to work. Not compared to ...

That unholy mess of a pit runs up to 2.5 miles deep, and its 236 miles of tunnels house a ridiculously massive underground complex. Every day, 4,000 workers are lowered into the mine in giant, three-story, 120-person cage elevators. Due to geothermal heat, the temperatures in the lower levels of the mine can reach up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Should we let it fall apart? By all means. But a reviewer should either obey his instinct to ignore such a novel completely, or read it and review something else, or read it and try to offer a reasoned judgment. Having in the meantime finished The Art of Fielding , I have to say that while Gessen is wrong about its being “impossible to dislike,” it’s not terrible either. The vaunted first pages are well done, with an undeniable flair for sportswriting.

One reason this opener works so well is that the prodigy is seen by an observer, from a distance. Unfortunately, the young man ceases to be an enigma even before the page numbers get into double digits.

The same shallowness marks everyone’s thoughts and feelings in The Art of Fielding , even when, as is fortunately often the case, the narrator relates them in his own concise words. This is one of Pella’s lovers:

‘Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing’—Arundhati Roy

WARNING: THE POWER GRID (AND THERFORE THE INTERNET) WILL LIKELY COLLAPSE AT SOME POINT PRIOR TO THE APOCALYPSE ON NOVEMBER 19, 2017. PLEASE DOWNLOAD A PDF COPY OF THIS REPORT AND PRINT IT OUT TO SHARE WITH FAMILY & FRIEND WHEN BABYLON STARTS TO FALL.

AUTHOR’S NOTE :  Since Planetary Alignment commenced on January 20, 2016, I have made numerous erronious calculations in respect to the End of the Maya Calendar and the start date of the Apocalypse. As the great Wayne Gretzsky once stated, ‘You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take’. To err is human and my mis-calculations are further proof that despite being the so-called Messiah, I am just a mere human. That being said, I am now 99.999% sure that November 19, 2017, is in-fact the date of the Apocalypse which I and the World have been anxiously waiting for.
