Book Review: The Moonballers by Jeffrey Sotto


If Jane the Virgin had a three-way with It's a Sin and Todrick Hall's Forbidden, the result might be The Moonballers.


Fast-paced, (melo)dramatic, and with a cast of lovingly, unapologetic, stereotypical characters, it's the most entertaining book I've read since Burn It All Down by Nicolas DiDomizio.


The dialogue is sharp and witty, and the plot builds and builds until it barrels into telenovela territory - not that I'm complaining.


There were a couple of formatting and spelling issues, but I didn't care, because behind all the farcical satire is real heart and the characters subtly shift from stereotypical to people I could relate to.


It almost made me want to take up tennis.


Almost.


So… read it, read it, READ IT.
