5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking Read, 31 Oct. 2005
By 
S C Stewart (London United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ashes Fever: How England Won the Greatest Ever Test Series (Hardcover)
As an Aussie it was a hard pill to swallow losing the ASHES. Having lived, breathed and watched almost every ball of the whole Australian Tour it was gut wrenching stuff to finally, after so long, not have bragging rights on the Ashes!
What a series! What a ride! When I saw this book I didnt think it would let me relive some of the amazing moments I had over the summer, how wrong was I? This book is brilliant, sensational, I really dont know how to describe it. The pictures are unbelievable, some amazing photography. The writing is brilliant. Having so many quotes in the book was brilliant, from Vaughan to Ponting, Golchrist to Jones, it doesnt get any better. I would not (and have not) have any objection whatsoever in recommending this book to anyone, australian or english, quick simply, it was the best thing I have found so far to take me back to that wonderful feeling of ASHES 2005!

4.0 out of 5 stars a terrific momento, 11 Oct. 2005

Must admit I'm only at the end of chapter two and maybe Ian Stafford is still hoping for an Aussie victory, he seems more than a little biased towards the Aussies. Having said that I am enjoying every minute of his commentary-style writing. It is worth it for the pics alone. The book is extremely well-laid out and even includes the final scoreboards for each test. A terrific momento of the best Ashes series in a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Collection of Ashes Memories, 3 Oct. 2005

This review is from: Ashes Fever: How England Won the Greatest Ever Test Series (Hardcover)
This book is packed full of beautiful colour glossy images of this summer's Ashes success over Australia. As somebody who takes photographs seriously I really appreciated the quality of the images in this book. Not only are there images of the players in action but other images showing scenes that we may not otherwise see. For example the image where Australia's Matthew Hayden is meditating at the wicket or the image of England's Kevin Pietersen on the England balcony wearing dubious white sunglasses. My favourite action image shows Australia's Brett Lee running in to bowl another ninety mile an hour plus ball. Among other impressive photographs are the ones showing off the grounds that were the platform for the cricketing action.
One photograph that is sadly missing is the iconic scene where Andrew Flintoff is bending down to console a distraught Brett Lee just after England have won the second test by two runs at Edgbaston on Sunday 7th August. I simply cannot understand why this image is missing. But I have to admit that it must have been a very special photographer to have the vision to take this particular image while all the celebrations were taking place among the England players. Such a glaring omission though should not put anybody off from obtaining this book which you will cherish for years to come as something to remind you of the glorious summer when England finally regained the Ashes.
