    doc à The Berlin Boxing Club Hardcover The Berlin Boxing ClubI liked the book's insight but I couldn't feel the characters emotions It was like reading an autobiography but mostly like reading a textbook of a storyThe author has real potential but rather than showing us the readers he continues to tell us what happens where the MC is and I did like the story altogether but I could've liked it I found one or two grammar mistakes Our selves should've been ourselves in one sentence and there was another that needed a capitalized letter I don't really care about grammar as long as it isn't too noticeable so I didn't really careWhile the story was good Jewish boxer war insight and persecution I just couldn't connect with the character45 outstanding but not uite there starsI am in no way an editor

    doc à The Berlin Boxing Club Hardcover The Berlin Boxing ClubThere are layers to the pure and utter crap that this book containsSeriously I was left in utter shock of the sheer crappery that is this bookBut hey I'm fair Let's start with the positives Boxing The book respectfully portrays the art of boxing People die Actually I'm wrong No one dies in this book Death is only in mention and not actually shown in detail Another reason why this book is crap The main character is a fedora wearing brony that probably has a neckbeard In another words he's an Atheist stereotype No I'm not kidding in fact the very first chapter starts with him thinking about how much he doesn't like his fellow Jews for being religious He even makes rem

    doc à The Berlin Boxing Club Hardcover The Berlin Boxing ClubWhile I usually really enjoy historical fiction especially World War II era this book was a huge letdown Poor writing 2 dimensional charactersI rolled my eyes any number of times There are many books about this era that would be better worth your time I do however find myself interested in the boxing world Max Schmeling and Joe Louis A non fiction book or even a concise fictional book would interest me But I don't see myself reaching for any other books by this author anytime in the future The writing was almost painfulThe best kind of book
