Fever Pitch - Nick Hornby
Although the book is about foot­ball, foot­ball and foot­ball Hornby’s style of writ­ing drew me to the book repeat­edly. With his choice of words, his dis­tinc­tive (Eng­lish) humor he gets to me every time.

At times he is really funny, but at other times he can be seri­ous about things hap­pen­ing in the (soccer-)world, like dis­crim­i­na­tion of play­ers and deaths as a result of van­dal­ism. This makes the book more than just an easy trib­ute to the game.

I enjoyed myself read­ing it.
