5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read, not just about football., 27 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud: Touring the Football Grounds of the Welsh Premier League (Paperback)
This was not the book I was expecting, I thought it would be a humorous tale of groundhopping in the Welsh football leagues, with tales of drunkenness, pies, ratings of grounds etc. you get some if that but in a completely different way as to how you would imagine.
I started reading the first couple of chapters, and genuinely thought I might not finish this book, he is such a grumpy, moaning, individual! But I am so glad I carried on reading because what I found was a fascinating tale about someone's life struggles, and happiness, revolving round a trip to all 12 League of Wales football grounds. I laughed and even gasped in some parts of the book.
The book can have quite random information inserted at various parts of the book, but the general pattern is football ground, life story, football ground, life story, and so on.
The sign of a good author when reading a book like this is I always ask myself the question "would I like to have a pint with this bloke?" The answer to this is definitely yes, I could talk for hours with Nathan about football and have plenty of pints.
I would class this book as a must, not for just football fans, but as a general good read for anyone who wants a good laugh. I thought it was excellent, and especially as it was his first book. If you like this book, try reading Mowbray's Route 66 too, another debut book about football grounds.
Overall a fantastic read that was told from the heart and had 100% honesty in there too.
