I am a football fan and a Nick Hornby fan so I was very curious to read this book. Football fan surely love it but I think also people who aren't should read it! It's a nice trip into an amazing sport and shows how all football supporters should behave...

Nick Hornby books are great when you want to read something that will entertain you, won't require you to keep a dictionary nearby to find out what numerous long words mean, but isn't a piece of mind numbingly dumb fluff. You find yourself, if not identifying with the main character, then at least recognising yourself or someone you know. If you are female don't be put off that the subject is football. Nick Hornby describes everyday events and habits in a way that will have you laughing out loud. I bought this book to replace a much loved copy that was lent but never returned.
A few people had mentioned this as a must read , i can understand why. As you read through the various section you can't help identifying yourself in the text ( although thankfully not all of it ) . If you like football and find yourself wondering what to do during the summer as I did , pick this up ( or download it) . You will soon identify with the author or even spot the hornby types who sit behind you in the stand on matchday.
