Incomprehensible to a Non-Fanatic,
This review is from: Fever Pitch (Kindle Edition)
First, I enjoyed this book. Well written and easy to read.
Enough has been said about its content so I'll skip that.
As a non football fanatic (don't get me wrong, as a bloke, I enjoy watching football but it's not the end of the earth if Liverpool lose) I was no clearer to understanding Hornby's attitude at the end of this book than I was at the start.
Hornby says "The things that I have often tried to explain to people about football - that it is not an escape, or a form of entertainment, but a different version of the world" sums it up. But I still didn't get it. His mindset is as alien to mine as a fundamentalist mullah's is.
Worth reading, though.
