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.

I love reading many different styles of books. Lately, I have been more into fantasy (a trend started by a Song of Ice and Fire, that led me to the Mistborn Trilogy, The Kingkiller Chronicles, Wheel of Time...) The books that captivate me the most are the ones with the most well-thought characters and well told story... something mundane can be made wonderful by a good writer.
Probably top 5, my top audibook is The Handmaid's Tale, but this is really very very good.
I don't know that I've ever read anything like it...
(Spoiler) The first time Ruthie taught Charlotte how to fight.
Two women from different walks of life fighting their way to happiness.
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.
