Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Fever Pitch, by Nick Hornby, read by Julian Rhind-Tutt.
As a young boy, growing up in the Home Counties and watching his parent's marriage fall apart, Nick Hornby had little sense of home. Then his dad took him to Highbury.
Arsenal's football ground would become the source of many of the strongest feelings he'd ever have: joy, humiliation, heartbreak, frustration, and hope.
In this now-classic book, he vividly depicts his troubled relationship with his father, his time as a teacher, and his first loves (after football), all through the prism of the game, as he insightfully and brilliantly explores obsession, and the way it can shape a life.

A must read for sports lovers . however , it is long and laborious .
"2nd half chapters play in reverse"
Great book/story but at about Chapter 30, the audiobook jumps to the last chapter and plays the remainder in reverse, finishing in the middle.
"Not bad but messed up chapters."
Appears to be a problem with chapter organisation as the last couple of chapters appeared half way through the book. With audible sign off advert.
Apart from that couldn't fault the performance or the self contained stories and history
Promising start but goes nowhere ... not Mr Hornby's best but at least the tone is pleasant.
