Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Autobiography of an obsessed football fan who is an Arsenal supporter, and attends every match, home or away, regardless of best friends' weddings, jobs and much else beside. Hornby proves you can spend your whole life as a football obsessive, threatening all your relationships, and yet still end up as a much-admired millionaire writer. This funny book is a delight for those who share the author's interest in football, and a light-hearted warning about obsession for those who don't. Witty and erudite. (Kirkus UK)

Book Review: Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby - Reviewed by (11 May 2011)

I pretty much hate all forms of football. The fact that I read a book about football (to the British, that is: the rest of the world calls it soccer) from cover to cover, smirking, chuckling and at times laughing out loud, attests, once again, to the talent of Nick Hornby as a wordsmith. This book is witty and clever, incredibly insightful about obsession and definitely worth a read!
