I have never been a big fan of wrestling. I did watch it a little when I was young, but that was before Luger was famous. I had heard of him, but knew very little about his life.
Just reading the description of this book had me hooked. It was well worth the time spent listening to it. The narration was spot on. I felt as if I were watching or listening to a show on the Biography channel.
Luger became one of the most famous wrestlers of all time. Here he shows his rise to the top and his fall. He includes background information on how the industry works and what the other wrestlers were like. You feel like you where there.
After living a life of drugs, partying and adultery, God changed his life. At the end of a dark journey was a gracious God who was there to pick up the pieces. I do not want to give away any of the story, but will just say that Lex has been through some very bad times. Near the end of the story it is heart breaking, but in the very end, we see what a great God we have.
Concerning the narrator, I had heard him before. In the past I was not particularly impressed. This book changed my mind. He brought the book to life and never missed a beat. The difference must have been the material that was read. In this book, he is articulate and exciting.
I loved this book. It keeps you hooked from the very first word. Even if you are like me and know nothing about wrestling, you will definitely enjoy this audiobook.
I highly recommend it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
I enjoyed this book courtesy of the Christian Audio review program at http://christianaudio.com and received the audio book, free of charge, from ChristianAudio.com and Tyndale Momentum in exchange for an honest review.
