This book is a what following a football team is all about
on 31 May 2008
This is Gary Edwards's 2nd book and after the success of his 1st book Paint it White I was expecting another fun read. Gary's tales of following Leeds home and away are legendry and this book picks up from where he left off in the last.
The first book was more about Gary himself, where as this book concentrates more on the characters,people and faces that Gary has meet whilst following Leeds everywhere since about the age of 10.
Gary's love of Leeds is like a marriage yet there will never be a divorce as his love has remained as strong as when it began and no matter what pain Leeds put him though the marriage will never be broken.
Much like the first book this read will make you smile, laugh and cry all at once but you won't be disappointed.
As I know myself following a football team has its ups and downs but what makes it special is the unique bond of people who share the same ups and downs as you and this book brings that out in all its glory.
No matter what football team you follow this book will appeal to all supporters and its worth adding to your bookshelf.
