Book Review

One of my favourite things to do in my spare time is read and I love getting book recommendations from others so I thought I would include book reviews on this site.  To kick off my reviews, here is one in the words of my husband Jeremy.  He is also an avid reader although he exclusively reads sports and music non-fiction.  

"I just finished an excellent book called The Lost Dream.  It's the sad and twisted tale of former NHL'er Mike Danton.  You might remember in 2004 he was the NHL player who got arrested during the Stanley Cup play-offs for hiring a hit-man to kill his agent David Frost.  I thought I knew the story quite well already, but as it turns out I only knew a fraction of the story of Danton and Frost's relationship.  Despite the fact that Danton tried to have Frost killed and did five years in jail, the two remain close to this day.  If you want to know the whole story you really should read The Lost Dream by Steve Simmons.  It's a page-turner for any hockey fan.  (I read it in four days with an eight month old baby in the house!)"
