The Fair Fight is a pulsating historical novel set within the world of female pugilists and their patrons in late 18th-century Bristol. It's an un-pauseable story which takes you from a filthy brothel to the finest houses in the town, from the world of street fighters to another of champions. It is about fighting your way to the top - and not only with your fists. Alive with the smells and sounds of the street, The Fair Fight is a major debut with incredibly wide appeal.

The ending is worth the wait

I loved the stories of Ruth and Charlotte, especially Ruth. The first chapter with her in the Convent was incredibly engaging. Charlotte's story took longer to develop for me, it was only around half way through that I started to get interested in how her character and story would develop. However I was completely uninterested in George's character and story. I felt the women were the focus and George was a bit of an oddity. I'm sad to say he bored me and I wanted to skip past his narratives to get back to the women. The writing was good and perhaps I missed some finer points. The ending was well worth the wait though, every character ends up exactly where they deserve to be which is very satisfying. Give it a go.

The best book I've read in a long time

Where does The Fair Fight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably top 5, my top audibook is The Handmaid's Tale, but this is really very very good.

What other book might you compare The Fair Fight to and why?

I don't know that I've ever read anything like it...

Which scene was your favorite?

(Spoiler) The first time Ruthie taught Charlotte how to fight.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Two women from different walks of life fighting their way to happiness.

Any additional comments?

Get this. Seriously. Specially if you are a woman and want to hear something with good female characters. But I believe men will equally appreciate it.
