this is again Genius,
This review is from: Ashes 2009: When Freddie Became Jesus (Paperback)
In his previous book, 2008, A Disrespective Jarrod basically used his blog posts to highlight the year in cricket. This book is different, this book is written by Jarrod especially about the Ashes, using some of his blogs, but mainly it is an exemplary description from a fan's view about the third greatest ashes series in the 2000's, because seriously this was a series between two average sides, neither of which were anywhere near as good as 2006, let alone 2005.
Laugh as Mitchell's Mum makes him Cry, weep as England decide that they're going to collapse in a little heap at headingly and get walked all over, snigger as Watson actually opens a test match innings, worship as Fred decides he's the Mesiah at Lords, and shake you head in wonder at how the Aussies could have been so stupid as to leave out Hauritz at the Oval
You'll read more thoughtful, painstaking books on this series, but you'll not read a better description of what actually happend as seen by a fan, who when it comes down to it, knows how to write a very very very funny and interesting book.
