5.0 out of 5 stars Great Short Read
Even though this is a short book, it is Hauser's style that makes it impossible to put down; not the number of pages. The story and characters are both likable and engaging and Hauser writes about boxing and the lifestyle it creates as only a man who knows and loves the sport can. An enjoyable read that though I wish had been longer, was in fact perfectly suited to being...

2.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed but it was not long enough.
This is a good quick read. An afternoon at most.
I'm a massive boxing fan and couldn't find many fictional boxing books out there. I saw this, read the reviews and gave it a go. There was some good insights into the world of boxing but it simply was not long enough. I paid under £3 so I won't be too harsh but had I paid the cover price of £12.99, I would have been...

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting short story, 25 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Waiting for Carver Boyd (Hardcover)
I loved this book. Superbly written, and emotive. One reviewer seems to think it is a biography, it is fiction. Great fiction at that. Manages to get inside the subject very quickly, making you really empathise with the narrator. Great stuf.

There was some good insights into the world of boxing but it simply was not long enough. I paid under £3 so I won't be too harsh but had I paid the cover price of £12.99, I would have been heart broken.
There were some great reviews from the world of boxing which is what attracted me to the book. I would imagine they all know the author well and were being a bit over the top to their friend.

3.0 out of 5 stars waiting for carver boyd, 4 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Waiting for Carver Boyd (Hardcover)
I was a bit disappointed with the book. I have read many biographies on boxing champions and although it was well presented I felt that I had heard it all before.
