    A Baseball Book for Fans.

    A wonderfully written and enjoyable book, and an even better account of Fenway Park. Rob Neyer's objective yet passionate account of his 2000 season in Boston was refreshing to read because he writes with honesty and friendliness. It is a book for anyone who loves baseball all year long - or has wondered how the park is cleaned (sadly, as I). I only wish I could have been lucky enough to spend a day at Fenway with Rob.

    An Interesting Diary of a Year Spent at Fenway

    It took me just a few days to read Rob Neyer's 600+ page book about the Red Sox and Fenway Park. It was very interesting, for the most part. I liked how he described everything about Fenway--the scalpers (he even gave them names), the Monster, the seating, the neighborhood around it, etc. I liked that he gave perspectives from every section of the park. I liked that he took the tour, tried to catch balls behind the Monster, spent a night inside, and talked to other fans at the park. I liked that I could go to the pages where he described the games I went to and relive them. I loved the 'Fenway Moments.' I did not like, however, all the talk about the other games he went to (the Royals?! I know you're a huge fan, Rob, but please!) and his love life (even though it was brief). Overall, it was a great book with details about everything you ever wanted to know about Fenway Park. He even gives a little history.

    Feeding the Green Monster offers nothing new...

    There have been plenty of cute, outsider-comes-to-baseball-heaven books about out of town visitors and their experiences at Fenway Park. Unfortunately, Feeding The Green Monster, differs from none of them in it's style, depth, perspective, or insight. It provides little more than a kid-at-a-candy-store hyped up feel-good movie of the week view of what is arguably one of the more interesting landmarks in sports. Also, Mr Neyer's fake humility regarding what he does and does not know about the park and the city is laughable, and no doubt embarrassing to many Boston sports fans. And nobody in Boston above the age of 5 calls the left field wall at Fenway the 'Green Monster'. Perhaps that is the target audience.

    Pretty Darn Good

    I read this book in a few days it was a great description of fenway and the way of life there. If you like Rob and Rany on the Royals you will like this book, as it is written in the same style.

    Excellent for all baseball fans

    I enjoyed Rob Neyer's new book 'Feeding the Green Monster' immensely. Neyer brings the experience of Fenway Park to life, from the scalpers to the fans to the players. There is something in this book for every baseball fan, no matter who your favorite team is. Neyer has an understanding and appreciation for the game, and its history, that leaves you with a desire to find out more. Mr. Neyer, you have just earned yourself a fan.
