      I found this book on the sidewalk on my way home from work. It's a super quick read. It's a magnificent story. I kept waiting for some sort of grand tragedy or other complete nonsense to ruin the whole thing, but it never happened. Good to the end. Loved it! High school English teachers, why don't you make the kiddies read this one? So good!

      SIX WORD REVIEW: Boxing corruption in the early 1900s?

      It found this book in my local library after school. It is easy to read and very understandable. It's a brilliant story. I is all heartbreaking and makes you understand the awful tragedies. However the pain did not appear until the very end. It is definitely a material for secondaries. You can pick a lot of language and structure which makes it very interesting. This book is aimed definitely at ages 11-16.

      Jack London had a handle on the boxing industry as he was a boxer from San Francisco alongside Abe Attell the Feather Weight Champion of the World. Just as the main character in this book - many boxers may be considered naive and many more may have lived lives that led them to be manipulated by promoters. Boxers suffered some of the biggest travesties and alienation in New York for the fifty years before Jacks story was written. Yes even the first boxing movie was filmed shortly before this book [...]

      Superman?Mi ero meravigliato per il fatto che London avesse configurato, nei suoi racconti sulla boxe, l'epica del pugile come la concepisce oggi il nostro immaginario, adottata pari pari in moltissimi e bellissimi film, come Cinderella man, Million dollar baby, Rocky 1, eccetera.Adesso sono strabiliato. London ha abbozzato nientemeno che Superman. Un uomo invincibile, di basso profilo, sottovalutato, un po' ingenuotto ma non stupido, che ha una relazione con una giornalista emancipata.Somiglian [...]

      Combining Jack London's social writing with his love for California and boxing, this is a swipe at the corruption in boxing that existed at the time and probably still permeates the sport now.A young boxer, Young Pat Glendon, is discovered in the back woods of Northern California and proceeds to become a sensation at the hands of a 'trusted' manager only to discover he has been led astray. His revenge reflects Glendon's innocence.Written in his later career the story has a depth of character tha [...]

      What if Henry David Thoreau had been a juggernaut pugilist? And what if a wildly popular American author of the early 20th century had decided to shape the prize fighter's story in a style we would later come to call Capra-esque, complete with silly romantic melodrama and an idealist's indignation at institutional corruption? A murky scenario, to be sure, but London tackles it with gusto. The fight scenes, while not always engrossing, are well imagined, and London's dialogue sparkles even when t [...]

      Since this book was first published in 1911, it was (duh!) a little hard to read. I read this book because it was on a list of 50 Top Romances of 20th Century. I, personally, would disagree with that. I found it to be 95% boxing and ethics and 5% romance. It was boring by any standards, and especially boring by MY standards. If i had to name something i liked, it was merely the challenge of reading a book that is 100 years old. It kind of made me feel like i was in another time. The things i did [...]

      More of a novella than a novel, an interesting story of a naive boxer who comes down from Northern California and -- naivete intact -- conquers the boxing world. Along the way he is exploited by agents, etc but is too trusting to know it. He meets a young female sportswriter who opens his eyes, wins one final glorious match, and leaves for the country. Huck Finn as boxer . . . and it's hard to believe that Malamud didn't read this book before he wrote THE NATURAL.

      This short story is about a man who was born to fight. He is such a good fighter that his agent has to agree with him beforehand how long each fight will last so that they're not one hit knockouts. It's not the most interesting story by Jack London but it's a quick read and has a good idea behind it.

      Well, the story is very good if you are in early early-to-mid teens.Now it seems either to be idealised or to be a novel which rapidly lost weight before meeting with a reader. I believe it's skullduggery too, y'know.It's a pretty short story, some people can get through it in an hour, I believe. So, do you really need a review?3/5.

      As a fight fan, I really enjoyed this tale of an honest man in a corrupt world. The ending was a little too predictable and "happily ever after," but overall a worthwhile read.

      Another boxing story by London, along "The Game". More romantic and optimistic, but still amateur. I doubt if anybody read it twice.

      Surprised I liked this. Not usually a Jack London fan. The message of integrity really resonated.
