    2. Have you ever read a book that you knew had to be shared, not just with a friend or family member, but with the multitudes The Berlin Boxing Club by Robert Sharenow should be read by all teenage boys Fourteen year old Karl Stern has never thought of himself as a Jew But to the bullies at his school in Nazi era Berlin, it doesn t matter that Karl has never set foot in a synagogue or that his family doesn t practice religion Demoralized by relentless attacks on a heritage he doesn t accept as his [...]

    3. Read this review and on my blogIn a nutshell A great historical novel based on the true and new to me story of Max Schmeling, a famous German boxer who helped two Jewish children flee in 1938 I had been meaning to read The Berlin Boxing Club for so long What finally inspired me was seeing it in a recommendations post on Tumblr and it being the only book I hadn t yet read, along with a heap of my favourites It s not necessarily as wow for me personally as some of those books, but I appreciated i [...]

    4. I liked the book s insight but, I couldn t feel the characters emotions It was like reading an autobiography but mostly like reading a textbook of a story.The author has real potential but, rather than showing us, the readers, he continues to tell us what happens, where the MC is, and I did like the story altogether but, I could ve liked it .I found one or two grammar mistakes Our selves should ve been ourselves in one sentence and there was another that needed a capitalized letter I don t reall [...]

    5. This book broke my heart into little pieces Would not you be interested in carrying an apple or, perhaps, some eggs They are fresh from my cousin s farm.I noticed how his coat was frayed His eyes were damp and yellow, betraying his despair as he waited for my answer Sure, I ll bring an apple How about one for your sister Just a few cents.I hesitated In fact, I did not have the extra cents to spend, but Herr Greenberg seemed to need them even than we did All right, I agreed, picking another app [...]

    6. There are layers to the pure and utter crap that this book contains.Seriously, I was left in utter shock of the sheer crappery that is this book.But hey, I m fair Let s start with the positives Boxing The book respectfully portrays the art of boxing People die Actually I m wrong No one dies in this book Death is only in mention and not actually shown in detail Another reason why this book is crap The main character is a fedora wearing brony that probably has a neckbeard In another words, he s an [...]

    7. While I usually really enjoy historical fiction, especially World War II era, this book was a huge letdown Poor writing, 2 dimensional charactersI rolled my eyes any number of times There are many books about this era that would be better worth your time I do, however, find myself interested in the boxing world, Max Schmeling, and Joe Louis A non fiction book, or even a concise fictional book, would interest me But I don t see myself reaching for any other books by this author anytime in the f [...]

    8. Great Book It should be read by all teenage guys Not exacty a girl book, but that doesnt mean girls cant read it That being said there were a few issues with the bookOLENT CONTENT This book is set at the beginning of World War II and it is about boxing so you can expect some violence Karl is beat up a few times Bowing matches are held, sometimes on the radio, blow by blow Kristallnact happens at the end, during which screams are heard and some boys break into Karls house, break things and seriou [...]

    9. I bought this book at a middle school book fair It is young adult, historical fiction based loosely on the true story of Max Schmeling, a boxing star in Nazi Germany After a defeat to Joe Louis and after harboring two Jewish children in his apartment, Hitler was not happy with him any longer, and Max was forcibly drafted into the German paratroopers where he was wounded in combat.But this story is not about him It is about Karl Stern, a young boy bullied at his school in Nazi Berlin, even though [...]

    10. This book was highly enjoyable because it was unique and inspirational There are so many books out there that are the typical all the same Holocaust stories not that I don t love them , but this went a step forward It was unique that there was something else going on in the characters life, which brought an exciting and unique aspect to the book The story brought a lot of inspiration and hope because when times seemed to be so rough for Karl, he persevered and kept his dream alive that Max would [...]

    11. At one point during the reading of this story, my son and I agreed it would be better in cinematic forma nice way to say the story is good the writing not so much The narrator s internal monologue did not seem to fit that of a Jewish teenager in Berlin during Hitler s regime The external dialogue among the characters was very basic, making a mismatch between the mature themes and the weak prose.Three stars for the actual storyline it did generate an interest in Max Schmeling and his boxing caree [...]

    12. My previous foray into historical fiction was pretty blah, so I didn t have high hopes for YA historical fiction about a Jewish boy in Nazi Germany I was pleasantly surprised by the original perspective of the protagonist who is not a practicing Jew and who comes of age at a boxing club amidst some very real, very complex historical figures I only wish the author would have explored the comic book aspect a little I loved the parallels he drew with the new Superman and would have loved to see .

    13. This is one of the better books I ve read in my years It was very action packed and there was never a dull moment I like how it made you feel like you were Jewish in nazi Germany The story was also very realistic in my mind There are no complaints to be had about this book I would highly recommend this book to anybody.

    14. MY OPINION THIS IS AN ESSAY THAT I WROTE ON THIS BOOK FOR SCHOOL THAT COUNTS AS A REVIEWKarl Stern, our protagonist, is born into a Jewish family He does not possess the Jewish qualities that the Nazi Germans make fun of, but his family does Karl doesn t really consider himself as Jewish Page 6 and even states in the beginning of the book that Jews sounded different They acted different They were different I believed they were ruining everything Page 9 He doesn t believe in either the Nazis nor [...]

    15. The Berlin Boxing Club was a book that combined two genres i am passionate about Boxing and World War II Although the book is slightly juvenile and truly meant for a younger audience, i still enjoyed it It was easy to read, flowed well, and held my interest throughout the entire story I enjoyed all of the characters each of them being very unique, and some unexpected The mix between boxing and survival in Berlin in 1935 1940 was a very intriguing idea I enjoyed the balance of both topics and fel [...]

    16. I picked these many stars because i really enjoyed the book, i enjoyed how it involved a real heavy weight boxer Max Schmeling I enjoy reading books that were stationed with WW1 and WW The book was a just right book for me, it wasent too hard or too easy for me Someone else should read this book because they could learn something new, on the back of the book it shows different dates and a description of what happen on that date The book would be better if had a table of contents, theirs some rea [...]

    27. This was an unbelievable book It was a truly touching, inspirational story, and a great eyeopener to the horrors that were performed during the great depression.Alongside that fact, a couple specific sentences really hit home for me The first one appeared after his parents had a major fight around page 180 Race and religion didn t seem to matter in the ring, or if they mattered, they were points of pride or distinction This one has a really strong meaning, even if it were unintended It goes with [...]

Aimed at young adults, this provides a very different view of the oppression of the Jews under Nazi Germany Karl doesn t think of himself as Jewish, even though his grandparents were He s never been to synagogue, and his parents are non observant His father s only passion is for modern art, and he has taught Karl that the beliefs of Judaism are too old fashioned.That doesn t matter to the Nazis, as they slowly change the laws and the rules of society Karl s only escape is into the world of boxin [...]
