A light, quick read that tells the story of an AFL season from multiple perspectives. The structure has its strengths, but the constant flicking between characters mean that the heart of the book (the complicated relationship between draftees Mick and Jake) is lost and few characters are really developed. A good one for footy fans. ( )

Mick Reece and Jake Dooley, best mates since childhood, begin their first professional season playing AFL with little notion of what they're getting into: the complexity of the beast that the game must feed. In Game Day, Miriam Sved brings this beast into the light over the course of one season of Aussie Rules.

This novel is a poignant and clear-eyed exploration of what sport means for Australians, and the intensity with which we pursue and cherish it.… (more)
