Fever Pitch is the bitter-sweet autobiography which vividly accounts the elation and utter despair of a love affair with a particular football team. A phenomenal best seller and William Hill Sports Book of the Year, it captures the truth and absurdities of the obsessed Arsenal fan's mind, and whether you are interested in football or not, this is a sophisticated study of masculinity, class, identity, growing up, loyalty, depression - and joy.

    " This is a great book for the sports-obsessed idiot in all of us. It is also a cool history of British football for this era and even as an American I remember a lot of it. There aren't many people feeling sorry for Arsenal these days after they made it to Champions final in 2006, just like the Red Sox won the World Series as the movie was being made (or written). Who would have thunk it? "

    " It was a difficult book for me to get through. I had read some excellent reviews, and have read other pieces by Hornby, granted, most are short, but I did not find it very engaging. Maybe it's because I do not enjoy soccer very much, maybe it's because I would find someone so obsessed with one sport to be a bit annoying. I love sports as much as anyone else, in fact, more than most people, but an obsession like that is just irritating. Of course, I also am not familiar with soccer/football in England, so perhaps English people or other Anglophiles would enjoy it immensely. "

    " another book I could not finish, actually had no luck in gettting started --- my mind kept wandering as I read. "

    " A must-read for any football fanatic. So much different to the movie. Nick Hornby is mad, brilliantly mad. "
