Before I go into the details of this review I feel it ought to be said that I have been a footballsoccer goalkeeper for just about 16 years now come to think of it that s half of my life I was browsing casually for football related literature and amidst the pool of typical football oldstar biographies Keeper by Mal Peet stood outThe first thing I noticed about it was its fiction nature the second that it was given the tagline of a book for adolescentsTo my utmost shame I have to admit that the latter fact turned me off a little So I merely made a mental note about Keeper and moved onIt was only after adding it in Goodreads some one or two months later and reviewing some of the reviews it had gotten that I decided to actually get and read itI learned that perhaps the only thing adolescent about Keeper is its length 224 pages The Book itself is a wonderful fictional read for any football enthusiast such as myselfThe story of the book revolves around the now greatest football goalkeeper of all times El Gato who after single handedly winning the FIFA world cup for his team is meeting a popular south american sports journalist to give an exclusive interviewThe narration alternates between a dialogue of the two men and a monologue by Gato whenever he recalls his life and how he came to be the man that he is todayIndeed El Gato has come a long way to be the grand sportsman that he is now He confesses into the reporter that in order to become a great football player he had to actually give up on playing football first When I read these words I was as confused as you may be now but those challenging words only serve to draw you into the story and the world of the KeeperKeeper is an adventurous at times very magical story about the coming of age that every human being experiences and no two experiences of that kind are the sameWe learn about the childhood home of Gato in South America a rain forestjungle logging camp that serves as the home to the families of the men that work as loggers there Mal Peet manages to describe both the forest and the loggers work in a vivid authentic way It is hard work to cut the forest down to push back nature on soil that has been claimed by it many many years before Man has even set foot on it As such the only respite there is for anyone in El Gato s home camp is football the elderly watch football games on a small TV set together whenever they need not work and the younger ones do of course play football themselves dusty and bare feeted football games those are of course there is nothing glamorous about it but it makes them happy for a while And moments of happiness they need to fade out the cruel and hard working environment that is their logging camp The children s football games however do not excite one young boy one called El Cigueno the stork and one who would eventually be called El Gato the cat the protagonist Back then and out of frustration over his lacking football skills the boy one day wanders off into the rain forest on a route he s never taken before To his surprise he ends up on a clearing in the middle of the forest something very unusual and even unusual is the football goal that is on that makeshift football pitch This is the place where a mysterious person appears a goalkeeper obviously who takes it upon himself to mentor young El Cigueno and have him become El Gato the world s greatest goalkeeperKeeper was a complete joy to read I realise that may be so because I m a football addict but still I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in sportsThe descriptions of the football play are action packed and vividly narrated you cannot help but re enact the scenes inside the book in your head and it is so accurate it is astonishing The emotions and thoughts going through El Gato s mind whenever he plays are surprisingly close to what I tend to feel and think during a game I remember than a few moments when I had a smile on my face while reading the book since it all called so close to home The sports related narrations of the book are top notchThe mystery parts of the book are compelling as well especially since they are closely related to the rain forest That setting made everything that much enigmatic for me It was fairly obvious where the book was headed story wise but nevertheless I felt this never decreased my enjoyment of it I believe that is due to the lyrical perhaps even magical nature of the narration I cannot truly put my finger on it but after turning the last page I sincerely wished that the story would not have come to an end yet I wanted to return to the clearing in the rain forest to El Gato and his mysterious mentor and train football with them
