Description 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.

Par David A. Baer - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's difficult to imagine a more unlikely book concept. And *impossible* to absorb the luck of its timing.

Two novelists, quite unlike each other except for their deep-structure attachment to the Boston Red Sox, trade emails over the course of a 162-game baseball season, supplemented--dramatically, gorgeously, gloriously--by a post-season that must be acknowledged as one of the all-time finest moment in sports.

Back when some working stiff in an editor's office at Scribner's wrote the functional equivalent of 'Yeah, I guess we could do that ...', nobody could have suspected that the season during which horror-fiction monarch Stephen King and Fine Young Novelist Stewart O'Nan would begin trading emails at the outset of Spring Training would end up being the now incomparable (for Red Sox fans) '2004'.

You see, Sox fans abbreviate calamity by the numbers: 1949, 1967, 1986, 1993 ... These are the numerals that circumscribe the domain in which Disaster has sunk its tentacles deep into the soul of the long-suffering citizens of Red Sox Nation.

'2004' is another number, but so very, very different from all others. It gives its numerical title to the chapter in which Boston broke the long-standing Curse of the Bambino (so named by Boston Globe sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy, who gets no love in this book). What is more, the baseball gods allowed that 2004 would break the Curse in the most improbable fashion, climaxing on a cold October night in the heart of the Evil Empire when the Sox came back from a 3-0 deficit to finish off the Hated Yankees in the location that would allow maximum vindicating juice to surge. The Sox sweep of the Cards in the World Series is just an agreeable footnote to the Real Thing.

O'Nan's obsessive, worrying prose dances with King's ironic, wizened, lyrical notes to record each moment, each game, each this-is-going-to-kill-us-(again)-in-the-end moment of the Sox 'Idiots' season, when--finally--all bets were off. The guys know baseball and, for this reviewer, their almost daily exchanges take one deep and helpfully inside this Game of Small Things.

Each mortal on the Sox roster had his moment of apotheosis. O'Nan and King were there to register it in real time, all the while reminding themselves and each other that this could lead to nothing good. Yet it did: the Dauber, Manny, Big Papi, Pedro, the erstwhile misspelt 'Mr. Schill', 'The Tragical Mr. Lowe', the Moneyball-vindicating (or almost) Dave Roberts and his ALCS Game Six steal-while-the-whole-world-was-watching (with apologies to Chicago), Johnny Damon and his Disciples, Tek, Mystery Leskanik, a young and much-queried manager called 'The Coma' by his detractors ...

On it went, chronicled day in and day out by Messieurs King and O'Nan while none of us imagined what was coming.

Let me be frank: you've got to be either a very serious fan of the game of baseball or a moderately serious Red Sox fan in order to love this book. Otherwise it'll come off as a black hole of rather pitiful obsessive behavior, carried on by two men who have families and other matters that probably miss their attention.

But if you fit in one of those categories, you might just love this book.

'2004', after all, is no ordinary year for either of the classes of human being mentioned above. For Sox fans--full disclosure requires that this reviewer briefly flash his identity card--there can be no other like it. 2007 is a welcome appendix, but just that.

The Curse-of which King, at least, is a passionate doubter, as he is of most things that flow from the acid pen of a certain Mr. Shaugnessy--was broken that year and nothing, in consequence, will ever be the same. For some, the descent from high drama to ordinary baseball has been a bitter pill to swallow. In candid moments, we kind of miss the suffering. A little.

King and O'Nan take us back to a time when Everything Mattered and No Good was likely to come of any of it. Yet it did, Did it ever!

The unabridged audiobook version is expertly read by Adam Grupper and Ron McLarty.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Spooky King and Kooky O'Nan wrote a beauty 29 octobre 2016
Par GMan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a very good book written by two good men who happen to be Red Sox fans. How they selected 2004 to chronicle the entire season of Sox baseball, including spring training still amazes me. Both writers add 'Humorist' to their list of talents by writing Faithful.

It was good to see how Spooky and Kooky spend their lives from April until November. They are good fathers and husbands whose families support their fanaticism. I gave Mr O'Nan the nickname Kooky because he is obsessed with catching baseballs and getting them signed. When he took a fish net on a ten-foot pole to a game his wife and kids walked behind him, pretending not to know him.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Baseball Heaven 20 janvier 2008

Written by fans, written for fans.

That is FAITHFUL in its very essence. And you don't even need to be a Sox fan. What you do need, though, is a rabid love for the game of Baseball.

On paper, this book looks to impress. You got two wonderful writers, Stewart O' Nan and Stephen King, both with impressive resumes (O' Nan's not as popular as King, obviously, but he wasn't voted one of the top 20 among young writers in the States for nothing) and a substantial amount of published works between the two of them, they could almost sell this book on pure reputation. But this book is much more than that. It has tons of character, emotion and honesty, which is exactly what a baseball book, any baseball book, should have. Baseball is a passionate game and this book does a good job of that, not because of the duo's skill, mind you, but because of their passion and their brutally honest love for the game of Baseball and, of course, the Red Sox.

That's not to say the writing's bad by any means. The writing is what you would expect from the duo. And they have kept the writing fresh and interesting throughout which I find impressive; not often do you see the game of Baseball being portrayed in such vibrancy over so long an account. And not often do you get a full recap of a FULL baseball season done so well, and you're getting all 400+ pages of it. But I believe it's more because of the passion in their veins and not technical skill.

So, you're asking, why should I bother? I'm not a Red Sox fan! Well, I dare say this book transcends even that, I dare say that no matter what fan base you belong to, you will come away from the book with a smile on your face, because, although this book is biased towards the Sox, any fan can appreciate the level of content this account of Baseball has. It was a histrorical win after all and the Sox winning the World Series after 80 plus years has got to appeal to us baseball fans because baseball is a historical sport by nature.

So I believe, to baseball fans, this book will be an addiction, a celebration of the game of Baseball. It will touch the universal heart of the Baseball fan.

So, Baseball fans, get this book will you? I guarantee you will soon be in Baseball heaven.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Maybe good for die-hard Sox fans, but O'Nan is bland as toast. 18 juillet 2014

The stuff King writes here is solid. It's full of emotion and energy, the ups and downs of a tumultuous season through the eyes of a true fan. The stuff written by O'Nan, however is stunningly boring. If I want a game-by-game recap with statistics and play-by-play, I'll just go look that stuff up. This is the internet era, which O'Nan seems to not understand. Unfortunately, his writing is roughly 75% of this book, and I recall barely finishing it.
