Rezension zu "The Fight" von Luke Wordley

A riveting read!
blessedvor 5 Jahren

First of all, let me say that I don’t like boxing whatsoever. You might thus be a little surprised that I picked up this book at all. Quite frankly so am I. I really don’t know what made me want to read it in the first place but…am I glad I did!

The Fight is so much more than just a book about boxing. It’s about life, loss, love, rage, regret, despair, second chances, friendships, broken dreams and ultimately about hope and redemption. The themes in this book are universal ones that anyone can and will relate to.

Sam, Jerry and the other characters are authentic and very well developed. A gifted storyteller, Luke Wordley portrays their struggles in such a real and honest way that it could just as well be a real-life story. He takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions in this fast-paced story that leads up to a breathtaking finale. The Fight is a riveting book that had me hooked from start to finish.

Although it is very much a guy’s kind of book, don’t let that deter you, ladies. Read it anyway – you’ll be glad you did! – and then pass it on to your husband, son, father… In fact, The Fight would make the perfect gift for Father’s Day (29th May if you’re in Germany or 15th June if you’re in the UK or US).

I rate this book with five stars, only because that is the highest available rating. But for the record, five stars are not enough to do this book justice. It’s definitely one my favourites of 2014, if not the favourite.
