Publisher's Summary

Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, The Rookie is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of Any Given Sunday with the space opera style of Star Wars and the criminal underworld of The Godfather. Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed, and rival players are assassinated. Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a nineteen-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."

not for me

I can watch american football (that's right they don't play football ;) but listening is very hard. at the beginning was very hard to get to this book especially that in background there was fans cheering during the game (that is so annoying and the sound between scenes why why why )
with Unabridged Audiobook why they do all the sounds that are mostly annoying
we hear buzzer and then narrator read that we hear buzzer background noise is very irritating

funny thing the best thing from book was american football and i don't like american football
