if you're not into soccer, don't bother

"Fever Pitch" is basically the same story as "High Fidelity" only in this case the main character is obsessed with football (that's soccer to us North Americans) instead of music. Although my own experience with soccer is limited to the one summer I spent in a soccer league when I was six years old, I felt obligated to read this book because "High Fidelity" is one of my all time favorites and could have very easilly been *my* life story. Not surprisingly, I didn't like this book nearly as much and while it's probably obvious why, I do think there are other things which separate it from his other one. The characters and relationships in "High Fidelity" were compelling and given more detail while "Fever Pitch" is more focused on the sport. I never felt that someone would have had to have been familiar musical references in "High Fidelity" in order to enjoy it but I do feel that not knowing much about Arsenal or football in general would be a problem for anyone who tries to read "Fever Pitch." So, while I wouldn't warn everyone against reading this book, I still think it has very limited appeal.
