cruelties of the loggers and camp workers as well This is a metaphysical journey as well what is your gift and your place in the world Well written and unusual I ll probably read it again Maybe 45 I always struggle with rating young adult books I felt this one is good for all ages It might even need older readers not because the content is mature it just felt like a serious book Writing was excellent Just the right amount of soccer and story It s a 1001 book and I found an ebook of it available there s no other reason I Dream Save Do: Life is Short, Live Your Dream decided to read it today I knew it was about soccer and I honestly can t think of something I like to read about less than sportsBut it is a 1001 book And it was available today And it is short So I plunged in Love soccer Then this book is for you Keeper by Mal Peet is a great book that will take you on an adventure like no other Keeper follows El Gato a boy who grows up in a small South American village and meets a strange ghost like figure that trains him to become the best goalkeeper in the world This book is very well written but I would have liked it even if it hadetail on El Gato s time while he lived. This stirring adventure a soccer story a ghost story efies expectations Both lyrical and gripping KIRKUS REVIEWS starred reviewWhen Paul Faustino of LA NACION flips on his tape recorder for an exclusive interview with El Gato the phenomen. In San Juan and played the club team there and of A Description Of Where description of where village lived in was and what it was like but otherwise than that it was a very good book My favorite part of this book is how well Mal Peet evelops El Gato s relationships with others and how he feels about certain things this Modern English in Action (Level 12) development of El Gato really allows the reader to become attached to him andraw the reader into the book even This book also accurately Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms depicts the life in a small forest village and how the role of men and women is muchifferent there than in our society Keeper is a great balance of fantasy iversity and the beautiful game of soccer This is a great balance of fantasy iversity and the beautiful game of soccer This is must read book for every soccer player or anyone who wants a fun and thrilling book 301218 read 021115 i The Alcohol Blackout: Walking, Talking, Unconscious Lethal did not then ando not now have any argument that promotes this to five stars i just Digital Feminist Activism: Girls and Women Fight Back Against Rape Culture did it is called the world s game and the beautiful game but then my love is almost entirely as spectator sure i played as kid not sure if we had actual positions or i just liked wandering upfield and so this book might to educate experienced readers where the game is a bigeal seem thin or contrived as any of those sports heroes bio films ever seen but i like this weird fantasysportmysticism and the exposure of making myth this is how i would like to imagine the players the play the games the emotions i remember The Story of Han Xiangzi: The Alchemical Adventures of a Daoist Immortal (China Program Book) discussing with girl about relative merits of art we were at some ballet and sport i had wanted to watch something not very important she claimed art always expressed some emotions summoned love mourning etc i said the onlyifference was that in sports you never know the ending less the emotions you will have getting there and i was really living through the most boring three hours in monkey suit with beauty beside me but then she had come to some game for me maybe my love of sport is too much to the art end beautiful losses ugly wins to team or player or season narratives but this book works both for me I am not and will not ever be a soccer buff but this book gave me an appreciation for the game that I Alien Mate (Zerconian Warriors, definitelyid not possess beforehand Peet has written a novel that weaves mysticism and football into one package that takes surprising turnsAlternating between current The Responsible Critic: Essays on African Literature, in Honor of Professor Ben Obumselu day and El Gato s childhood the reader is taken on a journey from his knobbly kneed talentless beginnings to his World Cup winning present It s a vivid journey one where every event is written in action packedetail that allows you to be in the moment The characters are expertly Race, Culture and Identity in Francophone West African and Caribbean Literature and Theory: From Negritude to Creolite (Francophone Cultures and Literatures, Vol. 32) depicted El Gato is a character that evolves beautifully like a caterpillar into a butterfly under the tutelage of the mysterious Keeper In the end soccerfootball is a metaphor for life embrace your vulnerability and fear work your butt off and stay open to opportunities and good things will comeIf there was anything to uibble it would be the scenes in presentay Some of the Hot African American Erotica dialogue felt a little flat for me almost like it was an untruth At time it was easy to resent Faustino and his interference into the unravelling past of El Gato Perhaps this was the goal of Peet for the journalist to add a splash of reality to the magical tale of the boy and the shadow As the readers we want to return to the jungle to the Keeper to El Gato s journey as soon as possible It s a fantastic way to build tension within the story and within the readerIt s a lovely read Full of joy for soccer the technicalities of the game and of life the need for belief in yourself and the impossible and the joy in success It s uite a surprising read that runs the gamut of emotions and turns highly recommended Before I go into theetails of this review I feel it ought to be said that I have been a footballsoccer goalkeeper for just about 16 years now come to think of it that s half of my life I was browsing casually for football related literature and amidst the pool of typical football oldstar biographies Keeper by Mal Peet stood outThe first thing I noticed about it was its fiction nature the second that it was given the tagline of a book for adolescentsTo my utmost shame I have to admit that the latter fact turned me off a little So I merely made a mental note about Keeper and moved onIt was only after adding it in Goodreads some one or two months later and reviewing some of the reviews it had gotten that I ecided to actually get and read itI learned that perhaps the only thing adolescent about Keeper is its length 224 pages The Book itself is a wonderful fictional read for any football enthusiast such as myselfThe story of the book revolves around the now greatest football goalkeeper of all times El Gato who after single handedly winning the FIFA world cup for his team is meeting a popular south american sports journalist to give an exclusive interviewThe narration alternates between a ialogue of the two men and a monologue by Gato whenever he recalls his life and how he. Al goalkeeper who single handedly brought his team the World Cup the seasoned reporter uickly learns that this will be no ordinary story Instead the legendary El Gato narrates a spellbinding tale that begins in the South American rainforest wher.
