Ever wonder about obsessions with sports? Nick Hornby explores the origins of his lifelong passion and obsession with English football (American soccer) from childhood to the present. Best of all, Julian Rhind-Tutt's narration shows HIS total involvement with the sport, or at least a passing interest. He never stumbles over names or hesitates to describe the games in minute, vivid details. Rhind-Tutt's crisp British accent adds to the highly descriptive sports language, replete with British slang and expletives. Written as a diary announcing the game and its location, FEVER PITCH may absorb the sports enthusiast; Rhind-Tutt certainly does. M.B.K. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
