Gave It A Read 
it a read it s definitely the same story as Damn Yankees But how does it hold up against its famous stage adaptation Well both versions f the story have their pros and their cons it ultimately depends n what you re looking for from the story If you want to really explore Joe s mindset during all f this then The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant is the book for you It s well written engaging and a uick readOn the surface there s not a huge amount that s different between The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant and Damn Yankees It s identifiably the same plot just with some changes here in there in the journey from A to B If you ve seen the musical you absolutely know what happens in the novel Joe Boyd makes a deal with the devil Mr Applegate Applegate know what happens in the novel Joe Boyd makes a deal with the devil Mr Applegate Applegate turn Joe into a young successful baseball player for his favorite team in exchange for Joe s soul Joe insists n an escape clause being crafted into the deal and the rest is history Joe leads the Washington Senators to victory after victory gets tempted by Lola and goes toe to toe against Mr Applegate in the fight for his soul It s definitely the same story And to be fair it s a great story It s a riff The Gollywhopper Games: Friend or Foe on the Faust story probably best known from Marlowe s tellingf the tale But there s a reason certain stories are considered classic stories Mr Applegate is every bit as interesting in the novel as he is Parafilias (Spanish Edition) on stage and the book is filled with a lotf really fun ideas and some really solid prose from Wallop nowhere near as It's Like This obtuse as you might think the prose in a 1950s novel might be It s a pretty uick very enjoyable readHowever there are a lotf differences some The Mirage of which I found surprising thanthers One f the biggest problems with Damn Yankees is the way it underutilizes and underdevelops its female characters Lola is probably the most iconic character from the stage show but she s pretty underdeveloped there She has a lot f scenes but we don t really get to know much about her So going into The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant I hoped that we might get to learn about her from the novel since the novel had space with which to develop her Surprisingly though she s developed even less in the novel than she is Rituels secrets des Templiers onstage Her plot arc is basically the same Applegate brings her in to tempt Joe but she ends up falling in love with Joe but the novel doesn t develop that at all Joe s pretty awful to her in the book yet she s still in love with him The novel doesn t show us what she sees in himr why nor does it spend any time with her to really make us care about her at all and so it s difficult to track why she does the things she does in the novel s climax The novel certainly wouldn t make anyone a fan f Lola and that s a real big shame Sure we get to learn a bit about her past but that doesn t make up for dropping the ball in every ther regardThe same is true for Joe s wife Meg in the show Bess in the novel She appears in about as many scenes as Lola does in the novel and is given even less development She s just the stereotypical housewife I suppose that s understandable given the novel was written in the 1950s and is told primarily from Joe s point A Mild Suicide of view But it s definitely a negative aspectf the book Basically if you re going into this novel hoping for information about some Beethoven for a Later Age: The Journey of a String Quartet of thether not Joe characters you ll be disappointedBut the differences aren t all bad though As I mentioned the novel is written from Joe s point Born to Ride: A Story About Bicycle Face of view so he gets a lot development than he did in the stage version Wallop really takes us into Joe s head and lets us see his thought process We get to see him struggle with Applegate s machinations If you re gonna underdevelop everyone else it s probably a really good idea to make sure your main character is. Decades before Fieldf Dreams there was The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant the classic baseball fable that became the hit movie and musical Damn Yankees Now a new generation is ready to discover this delightful book restored to its riginal title with a new introduction by basebal. ,
