Tommy Knuckles Trilogy
Having been a long term fan of MMA, I've read a lot of the various biographies and books about the sport that are out there. Though they always appeal to me because of my passionate interest in the topic, they do tend to be pretty similar offerings much of the time.
Fiction is where my heart is, and I've always wanted to read something fictional revolving around the world o Having been a long term fan of MMA, I've read a lot of the various biographies and books about the sport that are out there. Fiction is where my heart is, and I've always wanted to read something fictional revolving around the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Life isn't all sunshine and roses for Mexican teenager Tommy. His father was the legendary boxer 'Lefty', yet that doesn't stop Tommy from getting beaten up each evening when he walks home from school.
Though he doesn't feel as though he has any natural fighting instincts, it is part of Tommy's heritage, and something that he doesn't seem to be able to get away from no matter what he does. When 'The Condor', a famous Mexican boxer who's made it big in America returns home to visit Tommy's local gym, he ends up going along. Sonny, an old friend of his father's, takes Tommy under his wing and teaches him to box. Soon boxing isn't enough for Tommy. He wants to learn to fight on the ground and to fight in the cage. If Tommy thought that life would get easier for him in Las Vegas, then he was wrong.
His real fight is only just beginning. Through the pain and adversity he begins to find himself, making friends and even getting a girlfriend. This is a real 'coming of age' novel, as well as one about the disciplines of the sport. I really enjoyed this book. I felt that it gathered more momentum towards the end when Tommy was building a life for himself in Las Vegas.
The tone of the novel captured the sacrifices Tommy had to make perfectly — this isn't a glamorised view of the world of fighting, which I feel is important. The author's deep knowledge of the sport shines through. I was able to literally see the moves guys were throwing in my head, it was depicted so beautifully in the narrative. It was great to have a genuine technical element present in the book. The way that events are described and terms are explained makes it universally accessible.
It would be a great read for anyone who'd like to learn more about the sport. For those of us that are already fans though, we can have a sneaky giggle at some of the names of characters in the book — they seem awfully familiar. There are the bullying Diaz brothers for example, and the lovely lady who helps out behind at the desk in the gym in Vegas, her name is Dana! All in all, I thought this novel was a very promising start to the series, especially since there are no other books like this available.
Though I felt disconnected from Tommy in the beginning, the story really gathered pace and became more complex towards the end — the preview of the second book is especially intriguing! This was a very readable, fun book that is something completely different for MMA fans to sink their teeth into.
How can a parent compete with video-game addiction and the mindlessness of the Cartoon Network? Loh has solved that dilemma by proving once and for all that teens really can love great books. Loose ends are expertly tied and more threads become compellingly unraveled. Lon How can a parent compete with video-game addiction and the mindlessness of the Cartoon Network? Lon has convincingly written a character that could be our son or bother. He has taken everyday situations such as going to school, dealing with school rivalry.
Part of Tommy's appeal is that he could be any ordinary year-old, an underdog readers will root for, and loathe his horrible adversary, Gristle Diaz, who beats on him every other day.

Tommy is, however, bright and competent, and with Sonny and Thiago "Right here, tonight — this is what you were made for. He discovers he is a natural born fighter. Tommy learns that he has it within himself to overcome his existence. The book is packed with entertaining details and creative riffs in life. I highly recommend it.
