Concur with the other reviews. It's a nice, entertaining book; simple story & nothing to stretch the grey matter too much but it'll keep you entertained. Great holiday book.

In the February 2012 edition of the top soccer magazine 'Bailey of the Saints' by David Alejandro Fearnhead takes the number one spot in their 'Shop Window' feature. Read the review here...

Football fiction that both sexes will enjoy.

Bailey of the Saints
David Alejandro Fearnhead
(Great Northern Books, £8.99)
*****
Kidnappings and 10-goal thrillers are the staples of football novels, so it's good to read a more realistic effort. Heartfelt and uplifting, this engaging story of a struggling Prem star shipped out to New Zealand will even appeal to those of you who who secretly like abit of romance.

"This is an easy read: the sort of book to read on holiday when you don’t want to be too challenged or to have to think. It follows Jack Bailey from rejection by the Premier League to a new start in New Zealand and a reassessment of his life. It has some nice imagery of New Zealand and takes the reader reasonably well to places they might never have visited. It has enough to help keep you going to the end; though it is not terribly well crafted as a novel."

Initially I thought – No way am I going to read a story about a footballer! Then once I started, I couldn’t help being engaged by Bailey of the Saints. It is a really nice and entertaining story. For those women who are reluctant to reading about sports, well this is something else, something worth reading. Bailey of the Saints is a romantic story played out on and off the pitch, with wonderful New Zealand as a background. So, what are you waiting for?

Don't let the football theme put you off this book as I'm no football fan but still really enjoyed reading Bailey of the Saints. Set in New Zealand, the wonderful descriptions of the area captures the atmosphere that you can almost smell the humidity for real! Suprisingly, I think that this novel will appeal to both men and women.....I'm looking forward to seeing more of Mr Fearnhead's work in the future.

I came across this book originally on Autonomy. Male and female readers will enjoy the storyline of the life of a young footballer who is struggling to find his place in life both on and off the football field.
