However, Willies life changes in the blink of an eye. Willie is a sixteen year old high school athlete that has a strong passion for baseball. Willies feeling change throughout the book, especially after the accident. At first, Willie is a strong, independent, and confident young boy with hopes and dreams for baseball.

I actually started teaching it before I had completely read the book, which was a mistake. Seems like the perfect book to give high school students to read, right?

The book covers many important characters,themes and plots throughout the 300 page novel. The reason for this is that Chris Crutcher is very talented writer and as a result was able to produce a very strong inspirational book. With the help of friends in his new town he was able to recover as best he could and be the best person he could be. In the beginning of the novel, Willie senior can be seen as a very strong minded man. In addition to the many characters, the themes of this novel are very relevant and important messages. Willie can be seen giving up in the beginning and the author shows that feeling defeat gets that person nowhere. In conclusion this book is a well written novel that was able to connect sports life in to the pressure of being a teenager. Chris crutcher was able to show that determination and finding one inner self is one of the most important things someone can do.

Plot: The Crazy Horse Electric Game, a classic novel about baseball, features a male adolescent, Willie Weaver, that is an athletic hero until an accident prohibits him from activity. When Sampson Floral battles against Crazy Horse Electric, an excellent team, for the championship title, Willie defeats Sal Whitworth, an outstanding player, with a sneaky catch behind the back. The Crazy Horse Electric Game created an ego for Willie to maintain his high school career. The main character is an adolescent; therefore, teenage girls and boys can relate to Willie Weavers emotions, drama, and athletic career. Personal Response: I give Crazy Horse Electric Game five out of five stars. I recommend Crazy Horse Electric Game to athletes seeking an inspiration in their career.

In Chris Crutchers novel The Crazy Horse Electric Game, Willie Weaver finds himself in an unfortunate situation, out of his control that ultimately changes his life. When Willie Weaver struggles through the unpredictability of life he learns a lot about himself as well as the qualities needed to cope with hardship. Willie Weaver is a strong athlete who has a passion for the game of baseball. In Chris Crutchers novel, The Crazy Horse Electric Game, the exposure of life problems are prominent as a young boys entire world is altered.

This book wasn't the best read ever since it is kind of confusing and gets boring to read. While he goes home trying to recover everyone seems to treat him differently not caring as much about him anymore which eventually leaves to a lot of conflict with family and friends.

I would make s recommendation because it would be easy for them to relate to the characters and it is a fun short read that doesn't take too much time in an athletes schedule.

Chris Crutcher's writing is controversial, and has been frequently challenged and even banned by individuals who want to censor his books by removing them from libraries and classrooms.
