5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read!, Aug. 3 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love college basketball and while not a hard core Duke fan, I do respect the program and like to watch the games whenever possible. The UNC rivalry is unlike anything else in sport and Blythe brought this home in a unique and pleasing fashion. I loved it.

This review is from: To Hate Like This Is To Be Happy Forever: A Thoroughly Obsessive, Intermittently Uplifting, and Occasionally Unbiased Account of the Duke-North Carolina Basketball Rivalry (Paperback)
Just finished reading this book through the March Madness season. A decent read with some great anectodes on one of sports greatest rivalries as told by a maniacal UNC homer in Will Blythe. The tone of the book is conversational yet details extremely vivid. Blythe writes during the 2005 year when the Tar Heels won it all.

If you aren't a college basketbal fan, you will be lost as Blythe assumes some basic knowledge of the characters. Basically, if you don't know anything about the players before reading this book, they will remain empty to you. If you are an astute college basketball fan, you will thoroughly enjoy the pyscho-analysis of the players and coaches.

Rightly so, Blythe chooses to focus most of his profiles on the seniors and upperclassman. If you think about it, not much will be remembered of Marvin Williams at UNC, having been there for just one year. Instead Melvin Scott gets a lot of love here.

I recommend this read if you are a diehard college basketball fan. Much like Rammer Jammer, To Hate Like This... takes you deep into the psyche of the darker side of sports fans. The maniacal side, the obsessive side.
