I thought The Field was an imaginative book full of action and mystery. I liked that the author, Tracy Richardson, blended a believable story about a regular high school boy with just enough sci-fi to make it enjoyable. I also thought the characters were realistic. I think my favorite part was in the ending, but since it gives away a lot of the book, I can’t say what it is. You’ll just have to read it yourself to find out. The book was sometimes slightly confusing to follow. Also, on the editor’s part, I saw a bunch of grammatical errors and flipped words, like “a in” instead of “in a." Unfortunately, a lot of the book dealt with soccer, which started to get a little boring for me. But if you are a soccer fan who also likes a little bit of sci-fi, this book might be for you.
