it was amazing
Read in June, 2010

I learned a lot about boxing! I was amazed by the story, and somewhat jealous that Peekay got to learn so much under the tutelage of suck bright people. I didn't like Peekay's reaction during the fight against the Judge at the end of the book because he seemed much more violent than he ever had, and I was a little disappointed with him at the end. However, I suppose that the fight does show that small can beat big when you fight first with the head and then with the heart. It also makes Peekay a normal person who has passions and grudges against people from his past. I know I do. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely read it again.
