Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brown . . . launches a new thriller series with this impressive first set in the violent world of professional mixed martial arts. . . . The gore inherent in no-holds-barred fighting may be excessive for some, but seasoned noir fans will find plenty to savor. The engaging Wallace is more than capable of carrying a series." —Publishers Weekly (August 2011)


"Brown has extensive training in various martial arts disciplines and takes readers deep inside the world of MMA. . . . He also gives readers a smartly constructed, well-told crime novel." —David Pitt, Booklist (August 2011)


"This superb thriller stands a bloody head above other titles in this genre. Fans of MMA and readers who enjoy sports fiction will want a ringside seat for this one." —Library Journal (August 2011)


"Between the sanctioned fights, the training for the boys, and the mob, readers will enjoy Wallace taking opponents to the woodshed." —Midwest Book Review (August 1, 2011)


"Suckerpunch is a nonstop thrill ride that never skips a beat and leaves the readers wanting to see more of Wallace." —www.MMArecap.com

I had this book knocked-out in 3 nights of reading, no pun intended. The characters, background and storyline are excellent. During the day I found myself wondering about what would happen next and couldn't wait to get home at night to read more. Really enjoyable read and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves MMA or just enjoys hearing about a good a** beating. Also, seriously good internal dialogue for the main character and I caught myself laughing out loud several times in regards to his comments to other story characters. All in all, pick it up you will enjoy it. Can't wait for the sequel.

This was such a great book! Normally this would not have been the type of book I would pick up and read, but when the opportunity presented itself, I could not put it down. It was very action based and an enjoyable read with some great dialogue that had me chuckling along the way. Every time I was wrapping up a chapter and I thought I may be able to put it down, I had to keep reading to find out what will happen to Woodshed next. I would recommend reading this book to anyone even if MMA is not up your alley. I am excited to see further adventures of Woodshed!

Suckerpunch, Jeremy Brown's outstanding debut novel, is a visceral thrill-ride through the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). His character, Aaron `Woodshed' Wallace, is as tough as they come - an MMA fighter with more heart than sense, but a man you would always choose to cover your back. He's trying to change, trying to overcome the harsh life and mistakes in his past, and is well aware he is often his own worst enemy. But he also knows two other things; he can fight, and he can win...

In Suckerpunch, Brown provides a no-holds-barred, straight-ahead action tale. His prose is as stripped down and powerful as the fighters and situations he writes about. Things go from bad to worse, and then much worse, for Woodshed as Brown tells his tale, before he provides the much anticipated fight and follow-up for the readers' satisfaction.

There were times I found myself wondering how Brown, the writer, was going to get Woodshed, the fighter, out of the incredibly dangerous corners into which he'd been painted. With as many action novels as I've read, this was an unusual occurrence - and I enjoyed every agonizing second of it. But the best part was Brown didn't falter or crush my `suspension of disbelief' as his plot unfolded toward its resolution.

Suckerpunch is not just an excellent debut novel, it's an excellent novel period. I'm certainly going to be rooting for both Brown and Woodshed when round two is published in 2012.

Format: Paperback
My guy is like a kleptomaniac when let loose in the library, limited only by what he can physically haul away (sometimes what we can BOTH haul away). This leads to some pretty interesting books getting read, and this was one of them. While on the bus I hear an amused snort, while sitting at the computer I hear a sadistic chuckle behind me, and eventually I hear "Oh you have to read this!". A few times he tried describing just what he found so great about the book and couldn't get much past "You'll like it!". He was right. I liked it, and quite a bit too.

There's dark humor, there's realistic martial arts, there's even a chick who isn't a waste of paper to read about (which is the rarest creature in fiction, I've found). The interactions between characters is great, sometimes they're not comfortable, sometimes you end up liking someone who's a complete jerk, and sometimes the people who seem like complete horrors actually were pretty affable guys. The only thing I didn't like is that I finished it so quickly because I couldn't put it down.

Suckerpunch will keep you on your toes! Just when you think the coast is clear for Woodshed think again! I couldn't believe how the storyline held my attention so well! Brown does a great job at including technical fighting descriptions without diving too deep and loosing an audience who doesn't know much about the sport. Woodshed's story was a great way to show how someone can flourish after a harsh childhood. Can't wait to hear more about Woodshed's past and future!

I know very little about the sport of MMA, but this novel was action-packed and keeps you interested, even if you aren't a big fan of MMA. I watch MMA on TV with better knowledge, and can't help but think of the fighters struggles to get to where they are today.

I don't remember many "fight" movies (well, OK, Rocky, Requiem for a Heavyweight, FightClub..) because I don't seek them out, they just happen across my field of vision. Well, same thing happened here. I just came across this book and was happily surprised when it turned out to be so interesting and fun. Easy to like the characters. Really easy to enjoy the writing style. I even learned some facts about fighting MMA. Nice surprise.
