This title may be familiar because of the movie of the same name, directed by Clint Eastwood. Not surprisingly, if you saw and liked the movie, you'll love this listen. Narrators David Colacci and JD Jackson make this an engaging, captivating story of life inside and outside the squared circle. They capture the feel of a ratty old gym as well as the hope of an underdog boxer. At times, this listen can be raw, which isn't surprising, given the subject matter. But Colacci and Jackson do an excellent job imbuing care, compassion, and understanding in this series of stories based on the life of F.X. Toole, who knew all about the art of boxing and how to share a story of hope and, too often, heartbreak. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
