  2. This is a complicated book On the one hand it is a highly personal look at the shortcomings of one man and or should I say because of his obsession with a British football soccer team, seemingly so narrow in scope that I have a hard time thinking anyone but an Arsenal fan would enjoy it On the other hand, it just might be the greatest sports book ever written, enabling those who don t get sports to understand how and why certain people they love can care so much about a bunch of grown m This is a complicated book On the one hand it is a highly personal look at the shortcomings of one man and or should I say because of his obsession with a British football soccer team, seemingly so narrow in scope that I have a hard time thinking anyone but an Arsenal fan would enjoy it On the other hand, it just might be the greatest sports book ever written, enabling those who don t get sports to understand how and why certain people they love can care so much about a bunch of grown men running around chasing after a ball I want to recommend this book to everyone I know, but with the caveat that they will probably not enjoy it Hey you should read this I think you ll hate it Fever Pitch is Hornby relating his struggle as a die hard sports fan in his case soccer , and what an unmerciful, miserable, and ultimately inescapable experience it truly is To love a sporting team is to know th...

  3. Just an okay book which is disappointing from this author I expectedThere were hints of his usual entertaining writing style and at least having grown up in the same time frame in the UK I did know some of what he was talking about However his descriptions of his obsession were actually very sad and he came across as a rather shallow and unlikeable individual I think I would have liked to hearabout his life and less about who kicked which goal at which match whenever I have to s Just an okay book which is disappointing from this author I expectedThere were hints of his usual entertaining writing style and at least having grown up in the same time frame in the UK I did know some of what he was talking about However his descriptions of his obsession were actually very sad and he came across as a rather shallow and unlikeable individual I think I would have liked to hearabout his life and less about who kicked which goal at which match whenever I have to say his memory for all...

  5. The football season ended with a huge sense of relief but almost instantly I was in pain at the thought of June and July, those two months of the year when I have to fill my mind with thoughts other than when are Arsenal playing next What time of the night do I set my alarm for The two months without football are the worst of the year Not least because now that I am living in Australia, as opposed to England, it s also winter It felt like the perfect time to finally revisit one of the book The football season ended with a huge sense of relief but almost instantly I was in pain at the thought of June and July, those two months of the year when I have to fill my mind with thoughts other than when are Arsenal playing next What time of the night do I set my alarm for The two months without football are the worst of the year Not least because now that I am living in Australia, as opposed to England, it s also winter It felt like the perfect time to finally revisit one of the books I ve enjoyed most in my life, the memoirs of Nick Hornby, the now celebrity Arsenal fan and writer of lit light novels that get turned in to not bad movies.Having initially read this book in 1994 at the age of 12, before my world changed in so many ways and before professional football in England changed in so many ways I was curious as to how Fever Pitch would stand the test of time and how accurate my memory of it was And I am happy to report that I enjoyed a...
