The only thing Pat seems to love as much as his wife is the Philadelphia Eagles. (BOO!) Even though Pat's an Eagles fan I could really relate to the moments he was worshiping the Eagles with his family. Whenever he did the special Eagles cheer with fellow fans I thought about shouting "IN-COM-PLETE!!!" with Broncos fans and the immense satisfaction it gives me. Sports fans will appreciate the comradery forged by the love of a team that Pat experiences throughout the tale.
This book is a real joy. Pat's eternal optimism made me smile from beginning to end. If you're feeling like you have a black cloud following you around, read The Silver Linings Playbook to give you some hope.
P.S. This is the 2nd book I read for my Colorful Reading Challenge. 7 more to go!
P.P.S. Now I can't wait to see the movie!
