    One thought on “Ron MacLean's Hockey Towns”

    1. It s like sitting down and having a few beers with Ron MacLean Read it over the weekend Just couldn t put it down Fantastic stories Most I hadn t heard before Made me tear up and laugh at the same time My wife is a teacher She read a couple of the stories and said the reason it s so good is because it s not just a hockey book, it s literature.

    2. This is a non fictional short story based book, It was written by Ron Maclean who is the anchor for Hockey night in Canada and Hometown hockey With hometown hockey, Ron goes from hockey town to hockey town across Canada on Sundays to host the segment Hometown Hockey and NHL game and connect with his fans Along the way, he learns about all of the adventures from some of the interesting people along the way The towns not only host big showings, but get to showcase what there town offers.The book R [...]

    3. was a good hockey read about small towns and hockey players enjoyed it quite a bit MacLean is one of the personalities that when you read a book by that person, you can hear his voice in your head as you read it.

    4. One of the best hockey books I ve ever read It s as simple as that True hockey fans, especially those from Canada will appreciate the stories in this book.

    5. quick easy kind of read, turned out a bit better than a I thought after the first few pages Some good stories but not a lot to sink the teeth into here.

    6. Much like his previous book Cornered , Hockey Towns is filled with plenty of interesting stories, anecdotes, and hockey culture It s a good read for anyone who is a hockey fan MacLean has a skill for combining equal parts intrigue, hockey action and memories, and touching stories that are in many ways uniquely Canadian Of particular not in my mind are the final story about Aurele Bourgeois, Michel Goulet s story told in his own words, and a story of a promising young goaltender beset by tragedy [...]

    7. There are some great stories in this book Unfortunately, the way they are told could put you to sleep Too many times the narrative is interrupted for pointless name dropping and backstories like stopping mid fight to tell you who the linesman involved is I was inspired to read this book after I heard Ron MacLean on the radio telling the amazing story of Brad Dalgarno s career However, I think the book would be much better if it got rid of the folksy, dithering tone and concentrated on the amazin [...]

    8. This is a wonderful and eclectic look at the struggles and sacrifices that many lovers of the sport have endured for the passion of the game Ron MacLean s Hometown Hockey tells of interesting places and stories spanning from Winnipeg, Manitoba to Moncton, New Brunswick and beyond A very enjoyable read from an under appreciated man.

    9. A collection of short anecdotes about various hockey players from various places across Canada The book has Ron McLean on the cover but feels very ghost written Some of the stories are compelling but many leave the reader waiting for a payoff that doesn t come At best it can be said that McLean is suited to the television than print medium.

    10. Very sombre and poignant stories about individuals in the hockey world In several cases gives a glimpse into the competitive world of trying to make it in the NHL, and the struggles some players had to undergo in order to do it, often in a marginal role like an enforcer.

    11. This is a great collection of stories about hockey people As in real life, most are not NHL stars who made millions of dollars playing pro hockey they re just people with a story and Ron MacLean does a great job of telling those stories.

    12. I got this book from my oldest brother and his wife for christmas It is about some of the famous hockey towns in Canada that have well known hockey players I enjoyed reading it It was a good book.
