Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Faithful isn't just about the Red Sox. It's also about family, friendship, and what it truly means to be a baseball fan and to be -- well, faithful, come hell or high water....The season was full of priceless moments, and King and O'Nan catch nearly all of them in amber."
-- Frank Mosher, The Boston Globe

"King and O'Nan are the kind of fans who make for great baseball companions: know-ledgeable, opinionated, funny, and irreverent."
-- Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today

"A sweet romance...the details are priceless."
-- Kyle Smith, People

"Faithful is ultimately a quasi-religious book about what all great religions should be founded upon: love -- in all its blindness and terror and euphoria and purity and, yes, addiction."
-- Dennis Lehane, Entertainment Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

Early in 2004, two writers and Red Sox fans, Stewart O'Nan and Stephen King, decided to chronicle the upcoming season, one of the most hotly anticipated in baseball history. They would sit together at Fenway. They would exchange emails. They would write about the games. And, as it happened, they would witness the greatest comeback ever in sports, and the first Red Sox championship in eighty-six years. What began as a Sox-filled summer like any other is now a fan's notes for the ages.

I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR SOX FANS 3 décembre 2004
Par Tim Janson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a Detroiter, I am truly happy for Sox Fans...I know how happy we hockey Fans were when the Red Wings won their first Stanley cup in 48 years back in 1997...I can only imagine what sox fans felt waiting over 80 years!

I've had the opportunity to meet Stephen King..Oddly enough here in Detroit as he was following his Red Sox on a road trip. We talked for about 15 minutes and he wanted to talk more about the Sox than his books! That was about 15 years ago and he's remained a truly passionate fan.

This book with his daily journal is really a hoot to read. It's kind of cool to see a guy who's a millionaire many tims over agaonizing over his favorite sports team just like the guy on the assembly line in the Ford plant.

King paints a picture filled with hope yet covered with a layer pessimism that only one who has seen so many dashed hopes can ever relate to. The missives back and forth between King and O' Nan, discussing stats and performances like a couple of fan boys was so fun to read. It's serendipitous too that this, the most significant and eventful season in Red Sox history, was the one King and O'Nan happened to chronicle. It had more tortuous (often torturous) story lines and plot points than either novelist could hope to devise - from the team's promising start to its maddening mid-season mediocrity to its overpowering win streak that annihilated the wild-card competition to its monumental post-season comeback.

What a read. Enjoy it Sox fans!

Why we love baseball 3 décembre 2004
Par ProperGander News (Dr. Emil Shuffhausen) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Bear with me for a second here...I am not really a Red Sox fan. At least, I wasn't until the playoffs. Naturally, being a good American, I rooted for the Sox against the "Evil Empire," and I was worried about them when they were down 0-3. As they began their amazing comeback, I felt myself being swept under their spell and by the time they went into the Series, I had gone out and bought myself a nice "B" ballcap. This book captures all of the joy and magic that the Red Sox gave to ALL baseball fans (except for a few diehard fans of the Yanks and Cards). Let's face it...stories like the Red Sox in '04 are why we love baseball. It's the stuff of legends. Yeah, sure, the overpaid billionaires on the Yankees might win the Series every other year, but all of their victories combined aren't as special as that of the Sox this year. My team didn't make it to the Series this year, but thanks to the Red Sox, I had something to really cheer about. Steven King and Stewart O'Nan provide giddy, partisan commentary that perfectly reflects the hopes, fears, frustrations, and triumphs of this franchise and their fans. I read a pretty hateful review of this book from a Yankee fan who apparently can't handle the truth, but speaking as an * objective * fan of baseball at large, I can tell you that most of the country was pretty thrilled at the Red Sox and their victories, especially over the Yankees. Hey, the Cardnials are a great franchise also, but this was the year of the Sox, and this book gives underdogs everywhere cause to cheer. If you love baseball and great sportswriting, pick it up.

Faithful not just for Red Sox Fans. 27 juin 2005
Par Rachel M. Stenberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have been a Red Sox fan as long as I can remember. Moving out of New England years back, I still follow the Sox and ecstatic was not even the word when I saw Foulke throw the ball to first to record the final out. And I got to relieve this memory and more in Faithful. What I loved about the book is not only did it follow the games, it followed the life of two other Sox fans and how it can be all-consuming to be a part of "Red Sox Nation" I loved that even though Stephen King is a famous author he still gets excited by his idols and wants autographs and other memorabilia just like little kids. Being a Sox fan is not easy at times and they showed the angst and anxiety that comes along with the job. But I bet if they had to do it over again, they would not change being a Sox fan for anything. And neither would I.

I am yet another lifelong sufferer (whoops, former sufferer) of Red Sox Nation. I enjoyed nothing more than seeing the Yankees die the worst death in baseball history.

I was really looking forward to the book after hearing during the post-season that Steve and Stewart were working on this book. What a fortuitous year to have chosen for this project (sometimes the stars do align). The problem I have with the book isn't as moronic as the idiots that are whining about "nasty language". Good lord, people, they're real words written by real people expressing real thoughts. Get over it already you prudish dullards.

Nope, my problem with the book is that so much time was dedicated to early games in the season than was put into the most important games of the season (the post-season). You get pitch-by-pitch accounts of games in May, but only a gloss-over of some of the post season wins. Come on, guys, those are the games we really wanted to read about.

I'm giving it 3 stars, though, because you do get a real feel for what it's like to be a fan of the BoSox, but most of all what it's like to be a fan of the game of baseball. For that, Steve and Stewart are to be congratulated. A better editor would have helped greatly.

Stephen King, afraid? 29 novembre 2004
Par Suzanna C. Nemeth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
"It's amazing how loud you have to yell at the TV so the players can hear." The amazing thing is that Stephen King was just as scared to watch the Red Sox as the rest of us were this year. Thankfully, this is one of the great baseball books, and I've read most of them, from Bouton to Stengalese. Netman in the Monster Seats, Mr. King's tics, and a double diary format that makes it very tempting to skip to the end to see if they had as tough a time as I did watching the playoffs! This is a must have for any real baseball fan's library.
