So it was OK because I love Cinderella man, the movie. Baru pertama kali baca buku biografi semi novel tentang tokoh olahraga. Olahraga tinju pula. Awalnya ga tertarik tapi denger-denger filmnya bagus.

Biasanya baca novel yang terbit novelnya dulu baru dibuat filmnya. Ini kebalikannya novelnya dibuat berdasarkan filmnya.

Yang membuat novel Baru pertama kali baca buku biografi semi novel tentang tokoh olahraga. Yang membuat novel ini mengesankan adalah pribadi James Braddock sendiri serta perjuangannya untuk menafkahi keluarganya. Dan yang membuat pembaca dapat nyambung dengan karakter Braddock-meskipun bukan penggemar tinju- adalah perjuangan hidupnya adalah refleksi perjuangan hidup hampir semua orang.

Cindrella man is the story of a proud family man who sees the zenith and the nadir in a niche of years due to the economy recession that hit America before the first world war. A proud boxer who had a habit of defeating the big names before he was forced to give up boxing to pay the bills. It's those bills which brought him back to the ring, and the rest is history. Marc Cerasini has done a brilliant job here, plotting the book just like a fairytale.

Jan 14, Kevin rated it did not like it. I thought the movie was based off of the book. Turns out the movie was fictional and then this book was based off the movie. Needless to say I was disappointed. That being said, the story was still fairly decent, just not very well told. I already knew the basic outline of the story and though this would fill in the rest, but now I'm going to look elsewhere. Not sure I'd recommend this book to anyone.

The real story is usually better than fiction anyway, so I'm always let down when authors feel I thought the movie was based off of the book.
