The Fight - Book Review

The Fight was such an easy and quick read, I finished it in about a week. Yes, even stealing just a few minutes here and there. I really wanted to steal a few minutes here and there. Having enjoyed The Fight by Luke Wordley so much, writing this book review is easy. The chapters flew by so quickly, filled with description enough to pain the picture, but not overwhelming. The action and character development were so clear and engaging. The chapters were short, but not leave you hanging short, just to the point, carrying the story from scene to scene.

The writing was smooth, not overly drawn out, yet weaved the story of each character's life together so well. Nothing about the events or the characters was unbelievable. In fact, one could easily see these events happening in real life, in their city/town and even the country. A young boy, who's lost his father to death and a mother to alcoholism attempts to cope with the changes, getting angrier and angrier, until someone sees something in him worth fighting for. A host of other characters with their own battles surround the boy, training him, guiding him, and comforting him. All the characters find their way to who they are and what they're doing in life with the support of one another.

I really had fun reading The Fight. I was almost sad to finish it. Each of the characters held my attention until the very end. While reading, I was filled with excitement and sadness for the characters as they traveled their paths, weaving themselves in and out of each others' lives. As the tagline on the cover reads: "The battles over a man's past. A fight for a boy's future.", Luke Wordley tells the story of boxing careers filled with pain, triumph, love, and struggle without being overly violent, yet is full of imagery.

So head on over to Amazon or Barnes & Noble and pick up a copy of this book. You won't be disappointed!
