LoveReading Expert Review of Fever Pitch

Being an Arsenal supporter, this has special significance, but the beauty of this book about the all-consuming nature of supporting a football team is that it speaks to anyone who's experienced the agonies and ecstasies of following the beautiful game, no matter what team or division you follow. This oft-quoted excerpt sums up the spirit of both the book and its subject: I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love with women: suddenly, inexplicably, uncritically, giving no thought to the pain or disruption it would bring with it.

Joanne Owen, from our Best Autobiographies Ever Blog.


A book that many a football fan can, no doubt, relate too. Hornby tells the story of his fanatical love of football from the age of 11. The amazing recall of every match, every player, every goal, every touch of the ball that some fans manage to have Nick Hornby certainly has. It’s a miracle he manages to find time to write his fiction!
