Hornby at his best,a great book.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fever Pitch (Paperback)
Many would associate Fever Pitch with the rest of those horrible football novels gone wrong but in fact Fever Pitch deals with a lot more.Fever Pitch deals with lots of social and economic issues such as social status,relationships,families,hooliganism and which I feel is most important a need for some kind of constant in our lives which we can fall back on in times of need.This is the main vertebrae of fever pitch as it deals with Hornby's using football as a metaphor for life theme comparing Arsenal and their surroundings to his own life as to try to make it all seem worth it.He feels that when Arsenal are performing on the football pitch it reflects on his own life which would seem to be a tragic comparison.
