Faithful Audiobook Free Download
“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 Boston Globe).
Faithful Audiobook is a book co-written by Stephen King and Stewart O’Nan. It chronicles exchanges between King and O’Nan about the Red Sox’s 2004 season, beginning with an e-mail in summer 2003, and throughout the 2004 season, from Spring Training to the World Series. 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.
On the surface, this is an audiobook for Red Sox fans. I am not a Red Sox fan. I grew up a Phillies fan, and am the son of a Cubs fan, so I don’t need to be preached to about baseball futility. However, the little details of what it means to be a baseball fan are what makes this book so readable. So underneath all the Red Sox rooting, there is a very nice book about being a fan, of a team and the game.
If you don’t have a working knowledge of baseball, let this book slide. The authors don’t try to explain the game, rather they explain what the game means to them. Parent and child moments at the ballpark, desperately tuning AM radio stations to catch a score, and perhaps even turning your cap inside out when it’s really, really, needed.
Those little details help make this book a great addition to any baseball lover’s library. And, if you are a Sox fan, go ahead and revel in a perfect season captured in print.
