    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleFirst Hornby I've read managed to avoid the brief college craze after High Fidelity came outbut now wish I hadn'tMy roommate lent me this book after it came up randomly in a conversationas I approach 30 and sports fandom becomes ridiculous proportional to my age I find myself having to defend my enthusiasm for baseball and Being in Europe probably has something to do with this too In fact discussing my love of baseball generally turns into an argument foragainst the legitimacyprominence of professional sports in our lives generally and this inevitably leads in my current context to pointless self righteous circle jerks about football hooliganism Suddenly I'm being handed a book about an English football fanAt any rate I find Fever Pitch to be cogent defense of passionate sports fandom with all the sheepish ackn

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleThis 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

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleJust an okay book which is disappointing from this author I expected There 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 hear about his life and less about who kicked which goal at which match whenever I have to say his memory for all those

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleI love this book than I can express I read it for the first time after a particularly painful baseball season Mariners expelled from the playoffs by demonic Yankees and I've probably read it every year since I'm actually reading it again right now because I am painfully baseball depri

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleThe 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

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch Kindle NB I received a free copy of this book from the Goodreads First Reads Program but that has not affected the content of my reviewI wanted to like this than I did I've read several of Nick Hornby's novels and as I generally enjoy reading about sports and I enjoy memoirs and humor I figured this book would be a gimme for me But sadly it wasn't To say that Nick Hornby was obsessed with footballsoccer is an extremely large understatement And like all peo

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleI just finished reading this book for the second time The first time I read it I probably would have given it five stars something about the glimpse into Hornby's world enthralled me but then I wasn't quite as familiar with the lifestyle of being a Premiership fan as I am now Set up as a series of essays Fever Pitch depicts the life of a man who is much much than a casual Arsenal fan while much less than a hooligan It caters to everyone who finds themselves in between those two descriptions As I was reading I found myself at times nodding in affirmation as he described his emotional state during key moments in his lifetime At other times though his experiences and observations were foreign to me since I am an American for example it is difficult for me to understand a lot the nuances between fan bases for different clubs which seemed second nature to

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleI first discovered 'Fever Pitch' when I first discovered Nick Hornby years back we read one of his novels for book club I got it at that time and have been waiting for the right time to read it Last week when I was thinking of which book to read next 'Fever Pitch' leapt at me I thought it was the perfect time to read it with the World Cup on 'Fever Pitch' is Nick Hornby's account of his life as a football fan In the book he talks about how his father took him to his first football match when he was around eleven years old and how by the end of the evening he had fallen in love with the game The football team he fell in love with was Arsenal and in most of the rest of the book he talks about Arsenal's ups and downs over the next twenty five years how he was part of it as a fan how his l

    Paperback ê Fever Pitch PDF/EPUB ↠ fever pdf, pitch epub, Fever Pitch KindleI came to Fever Pitch in a slightly roundabout way I'm seeing someone with a couple of Nick Hornby books on her shelf and feeling I had read some rather poor books recently and that few of my ways to book recommendations were leading me to books I enjoyed of late I had been thinking of giving Hornby a go I still procrastinated it for a while but I was thinking fondly recently of my experience with Jonathan Tropper and I happened to see something online comparing the twoSo I looked up Hornby on 's Kindle store and resolved to sort by highest customer rating and read whatever bub
