Bryce Courtenay – The Power of One

I’m about three-quarters of the way through The Power of One, a novel set in South Africa about a boy who eventually becomes boxing’s Welterweight Champion of the World.  Boxing is not ordinarily a topic I care much about, but this turns out to be a good book.  I like the characters.  They seem quite real.  And there’s the occasional trenchant turn of a phrase.

There’s an abridged version with the same title for younger readers.  Read the unabridged version.
