A Book of Three Quarters,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pray (Penguin Specials): Notes on the 2011/2012 Football Season (Penguin Shorts/Specials) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this little e-book but I have to say that I was left wanting more.
The first chapter was insightful and thought-provoking, shedding new light for me on the way the top clubs think and what they can realistically achieve (an issue highlighted even more by the current RVP 'saga').
However, I have to say that the chapters that followed didn't seem to provide the same depth for me. They were certainly worth reading but didn't add as much to the events that they described.
I got to 74% through the book and found I'd reached the last day of the season. What would follow? And now here's the real negative. The last 25% of the book is just adverts for Nick Hornby's other novels. And other people's work too!
You can only feel let down by this and wish that maybe things had ended more strongly. As an Arsenal fan, I am all too familiar with this feeling of course.
An enjoyable read, entertaining but for the cynical marketing involved. Bit like Premiership football really.
