The Legend of Bagger Vance was a fun read. If it had been any longer, I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much, but it gets right to the point, bringing out the mysticism and real struggle involved in golf or any other sport, and then extending the metaphysical message out to encompass all of life. The narration itself is good but nothing special- this book is really about the message.

Liked this movie and thought I would read the book. Enjoyed the book, although some of the mystical stuff Bagger says and does is hard to relate to. Will keep this book and read again.

What a great book! I'm always afraid the book will ruin my experience with the movie, but this book enhanced it. Charming, delightful and heart warming to the end.
