Customer Review

on 23 August 2011
This book is a long conversation between people who don't know each other, but share a common passion. We hear about what they're doing, family issues, hopes, fears and dreams, all set against the ongoing backdrop of a 5-match test series. It helps that the series was one of the most exciting ever played and so emotions ran high, as the title indicates.

Reading it brought back great memories of that Summer of 2005. In a way, this book is more vivid just because it isn't wonderful writing. It's ordinary people making jokes, having fun, but underneath waiting anxiously to hear the news, good or bad, about the team they support. Because of the length of a test match, this is possible only in cricket and it's one of the things that sets the sport apart.

Thanks to the Guardian for having the idea to issue this- it's not an obvious subject for a book, but one much appreciated by me and thousands of other cricket lovers.
