Publisher's Summary

Died for a cause.

Johnny’s tombstone would read like something you’d find in a dime novel at a used bookstore. Going out like a snuffed candle, his life ended just as it had really begun.

Now he’s been given a second chance to fight his way out of the corner he put himself into.

In a world of brawls, dirty fights, and hard-hitting cultivators, he must win. Because if he loses, he’ll lose more than just the fight, and it won’t be his life. He already managed that once, after all.

Warning: This slice-of-life, slow-burn, gamelit story contains adult themes, undefined relationships/harem, and graphic violence.

the best.

in my opinion this is the best Hondo book to date. the story dragged me in and didn't let me go until I finished the book same day.

Awesome book!

The book starts off a bit shaky, but eventually takes off in a way that draws the listener in. The characters all seem believable and rich and, while there are some spicier elements, they do not feel like things the characters wouldn't actually do. The author's background in boxing really comes through and you really feel like you are listening to the inner monologue of someone training to become a boxer.Tonally, the book has a cool retro feel to it and I often felt like I was listening to something akin to Golden Boy (the old William Holden movie, NOT the anime of the same name). Performance-wise, Chris Boucher and Jessica Threet once again do a phenomenal job. Each character had a unique feel to them and it was fun listening to the actors breathe life into them. The book's dialogue and classic tone could easily have come off as hokey and goofy, but the energy and obvious enjoyment the actors were deriving from their performances came through. Much of the dated terminology and vernacular elicited a smile or a laugh from me instead of the groan or eyeroll that could easily have come as a result. All-in-all I can't recommend this one enough, and am looking forward to getting into the next book.

Fantastic

Fight Town, Inspiration is a fast paced fun story. It also contains a hero I can relate to. The MC isn't some whiny, sniveling twerp, instead Johnny is a man of principals, dedication with a do'nt give up attitude. Mr. Jinx writes a fun story involved with and around with boxing. My only boxing education came from Rocky and Raging Bull in the theaters. This was not only an excellent story, it was a fun education as well. After listening to this story, I know I wo't try stepping in the ring anytime soon.

Speaking of listening, Boucher and Threeet were wonderful to listen to. They had me laughing at times and quietly concerned at others. They both are amazing voice actors.

My only recommendation to encourage you to spend the credit, or money is I'm writing this review after listening to Fight Town, Inspiration a second time.

Incredible

Hondo, I gotta say buddy… you really outdid yourself with this one. I listened to it in three days. Would have been faster if I hadn’t been working 12 hour shifts. For anyone who likes the harem, strong male protagonist, litrpg style, this book is for you. It’s a slow burn on the romance, but it really keeps you hanging on. Loved every minute of it and I’m pretty damn picky about my books. Spend your credits, my friends.

What a wonderful read

I cannot express how much I loved this book. It was an amazing blend of a few of my favorite genres (underdog, cultivation, slow burn romance). The characters were dynamic and had their own goals and not just a prop to tell the MC that they're amazing.

However my favorite thing was that he made up a situation that was synonymous with readers being 'Riders', producers being the publishing house or various other parallels. It was a real treat to listen to him toe the line of breaking the 4th wall in a way that made sense.

Get this book, become a Rider and Subscribe. Just as Johnny promised, you won't regret sticking around.

Loved it

This is Hondo Jinx and the the narrators at their best, as one they bring the story to life, characters you love or hate, and the adorable maid with a secret. And as a plus point you learn about boxing along the way.

Grit, litrpg and heart.

A male friend recommended this book to me. I was a little hesitant to read this because as a female I'm not really into harem based books. However this book surprised me. The author obviously knew what he was writing about in this book about fighting and there was true grit throughout this tale. More importantly the interaction between the sexes pleased and surprised me. This first book didn't have any harem elements although I'm told Hondo Jinx had other stories with haremLit, but this slow burn in my humble opinion gave the story more heart. Last but not least, the narrators truly brought this story to life. Well done to both the author and narrators!

Was a good listen in the car

First off, the Narration was perfect. I've listened to Christopher & Jess many times and they always deliver.
The mc was good, good back story and liked his principles.
The story itself was a little up and down. The concept was great with the boxing, stat's, relationship with the girl, enjoyed it. But it seemed to veer off a few times and leave me hanging. I am going to give the next one a go to see where it heads and hopefully it lifts up.
But I will say, that the very ending of this first book, wasn't thrilled with it, the characters could of just dated for a while first.

Fight Town

Hondo Jinx is one of the most talented and skilled author's and I enjoyed his book's .
And I got to say I'm hooked on this series and I can't wait to buy the next book in this series.
And with the voice acting talents and skills of Christopher Boucher and Jessica Threet that makes the characters and world come alive with the narration of this book.
