A Darker Shade of Red

Adult
Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Every football fan has heard the term "redshirt," but few know what it actually means, or what a year or more as a redshirt can do to the players who endure them. This novel provides an edge-of-your-seat expose of this hidden, hushed-up aspect of college football. No one who reads this stunningly powerful book and gets to know its characters will ever forget it, or forget them. More

Review by: Terry Beckett on March 05, 2013 :
My Freshman year playing football in college was a disastrous memory I carried around for years. Never really could put it into words that would give it the justice it deserved. That was until I read, "Darker Shades of Red." Those lost words to that experience were finally voiced. By reading this incredibly well written book I was finally able to lay some past monsters to rest. My wife of 30 years is currently reading it. Finally, she can stop asking me to share those years of yesterday. Now she will have the opportunity to feel the pain and taste the dirt of the Grid Iron I once knew.....all through the masterful writing of Lloyd Pye.

Review by: Rex Rossbach on Feb. 15, 2012 :
Coming at this as a reader of Mr. Pye's non-fiction material (okay, some may say pretty "out-there" non-fiction), I was expecting a solid read but wasn't sure if its lack of crypto/other-worldly material would be a limiting factor. I was dead wrong!

Do you need to be a sports fan, particularly an American football one, to relate to this book? It wouldn't hurt, but is definitely not a requirement. It's a great story that will suck you in regardless of where you're coming from.

I gave a copy to my Dad to read, and he gave it 2 thumbs up as well.

I put Mr. Pye right up there with Whitley Strieber and Graham Hancock. Good company for sure.
