Customer Review

on 12 June 2006
A truly fascinating book, which I did not expect to be 'unputdownable', but read it in a day and a half! I think one of the better aspects of it is that although it was written sometimes diary form, it was not in chronological order and that was part of its charm. It was very well written and I enjoyed being taken through all the highs and lows and the discomfort that competitive sport brings.

A couple of times he over-emphasised his emotions, in a assuming no-one felt that emotion more than he (how would he know?)which was annoying, but his descriptions of his relationships were moving and I was surprised at the depth of the rivalry with the Searle brothers (whatever happened to them?).

Certainly a wonderful read that kept me captivated, and although Matthew is clearly, and rightly, a private man, I hope he doesn't become a stranger to the world of writing. Yeah, I am a fan!
