Boxing has to be my least favorite sport. I don't even like any of the rocky movies. I was skeptical then when I noticed what a big role boxing played in this book. But it was an amazing listen. The world created in this book is vivid and fascinating and the characters have real depth. Though it isn't a fast paced book I was never bored. I found myself coming up with reasons to drive around in my car so I could listen to more of this book.
Also I thought the reader did an excellent job she added to the experience of hearing the story and did not distract from it with a strange accent or annoying voices.

From what I have read of the author, her characters all are fighting personal demons,even in the Kushiel series which I enjoyed. This is a bit different, but none the less a journey into plots and the strength of will to over come. Not the best work by JC but not half bad. Hoping for another book in this series to explain more and deepen the characters as in the Kushiel series. If you are expecting Kushiel then skip this, if you can open your mind to a different kind of country that many of us believe we are living in you might be surprised and say I can believe that our government has been hiding things for years.

This one made me cry publicly at work. Loved the characters, loved the setting, excellent listen. Finished it in two sittings.

To be fair, I didn't finish the book but I could get passed the overly descriptive beginning and the outrageous decisions the main character makes. It gave me the impression the author wanted to demonstrate how the hardship of their setting motivated certain decisions but because neither the characters or the setting was well develop it left one perplexed and skeptical about it. It won't involve you, put it that way
