Swap has an interesting, possibly fun concept but I found that the whole book was from Sheldon’s point of view. Nowhere did we actually hear from the other participants.

My first impression was that this was written by a self-styled "author" with a very juvenile maturity level. It wasn't because of spelling and grammar errors, which generally drive me nuts in "free" books that are pretty much self-published. It was in the tone of the author and his sentence structures. I soon realized that there was no real structure to this book. The timelines jumped all over the place even within each section. It was very hard to follow, the humor was adolescent, the sex was gratuitous, and I was just very disappointed with the whole experience of reading this book. The author evidently had many more ideas that he didn't know how to incorporate into the story and so he wrote an Epilogue that reads like an Appendix - just a lot more disjointed information about the major and minor characters. I would not read anything again by this author.

Once you get past the cheesy cover art, you'll find an entertaining book. Chock full of pop-culture, bar room banter and great movie references, it's a fun book to read.

This is the story of a young man who grew up trading baseball cards, and then later switched to trading baseball wives. Against the odds, Sheldon became a minor celebrity in his Ohio hometown. Born with a hearing defect and raised by a single parent, he still managed to play professional baseball, even though an unfortunate incident got him busted back to the minors.

Born down in a rust-belt town
The first pitch he threw was when he was real young
His friend was like a dog, chicks in heat so much
That he spent all his life just getting it up

That friend would be Tom, a fellow ball player who shared his exploits with the team, but his personal thoughts only with Sheldon. Tom married Lucy, a political activist fighting for the underdog and unaware of his dalliances. Lucy grew up poor, and was doing her best to be a good wife, mother and superhero until the day things clicked with Sheldon.

Got in a little hometown jam
When things got a little out of hand
Soon he came up with his swap plan
To go and become Lucy's man

Sheldon was married to Eleanor, a gorgeous woman with a monstrous past. Eleanor was rarely happy, and then one day she discovered that she and Tom had at least one thing in common.

The story moves fairly slowly, although fans of baseball and movie trivia won't notice this at all, and ever so often the author spices things up with a ribald recollection or two. Despite the title, the book is mostly about Sheldon, Tom, Lucy and Eleanor as individuals, and is rather skimpy on the actual logistics and details of the actual swap. Some questions are answered in the epilogue, but by then you're already more into the sideshows than the main attraction.

An interesting concept, and chock full of movie facts, this one is a gem of popular culture.

This book reads like a very entertaining Richard Russo novel (Empire Falls). Sheldon Marsh is the main character whose entire life has been influenced by his mother and her love for movies. Sheldon and his mother spend their waking hours likening the real world to movies they have seen. When they are not doing this they are seeking advice from their favorite bartender they have nicknamed The Ralph.

Sheldon a former major league pitcher, has issues with his wife and comes up with the brilliant idea of changing wives with his best friend Tom, who is also a pitcher that plays with Sheldon on the Indians minor league team. The author does a brilliant job of giving separate character studies of Tom and the two player's wives (Elizabeth and Lucy). Each one has their own issues.

I really enjoyed this entertaining and sometimes hilarious look at another small town with wacky things happening. The author also gives a listing of each character at the end with what happened with the rest of their life (like the end of Animal House). I have just received the author's second book and look forward to another great read!
